Research In Motion today announced that it will offer many of the same enterprise device management features available to its BlackBerry smartphones to devices running Apple's iOS and Google's Android platforms. The multi-platform BlackBerry Enterprise Solution, which is being supported by RIM's acquisition of ubitexx, will let businesses manage BlackBerries, iPhones, and Android handsets using the same system.

The new version of BES software that includes the multi-platform BlackBerry Enterprise Solution will become available to businesses later this year.
