RIM Upgrading BES In Line with BlackBerry 10 Platform
Research In Motion today sought to clarify reports about the future of its BlackBerry Enterprise Server with respect to device compatibility. RIM explained to Phone Scoop in an email that it is developing BES 10 to support all existing BlackBerries, including current BB7 smartphones, the PlayBook tablet, and new BB10 devices. "BES 10 will be the ultimate management solution for all BlackBerry platform devices, as well as iOS and Android devices," said Kim Geiger in an email. "BES 10 will launch simultaneously with the first BlackBerry 10 devices in [the first quarter of] calendar 2013. For existing BES customers, RIM will provide an upgrade to BES 10 in order to ensure that our enterprise customers have the most up-to-date technology available to manage their devices." The statements were made in response a report published by BGR.com. BlackBerry 10 has been delayed several times. Its early 2013 launch will come nearly a year after the next-generation BlackBerry platform was first due to arrive.
