RIM Bringing Email Support Back to S60
Several months ago, Nokia stopped including the software necessary for S60-based phones to exchange information with Research In Miotion's BES email servers. In response, RIM is working to provide the service for Nokia's S60 devices. Speaking in an interview with Reuters, Tom Furlong, head of Nokia's messaging services, said, "We are in the interim period of time when we have dropped support ourselves, and Blackberry is readying support for their service on Nokia devices." Nokia has launched its own branded, consumer-focused mobile email service, called Mail on Ovi. Nokia has also partnered with Microsoft and IBM to provide mobile email for enterprise customers. Nokia's Furlong was not able to say how soon RIM would have its S60 support ready.
