RIM to Update BlackBerry Features
Today Research In Motion announced that it will upgrade the features on its BlackBerry smartphones. Rather than receiving an entirely new platform, RIM will roll out the following software upgrades during the first half of the year. The inbox will get HTML and Rich Text support, so emails can be seen in their original format, including graphics, fonts, and colors. Users also will be able to search their remote email servers for old emails, see the availability of contacts prior to sending meeting invites, and use presence features to see when IM contacts are available for chats or phone calls. Lastly, RIM is adding Documents To Go from DataViz so users can download and edit Microsoft Office documents.
