BlackBerry WES 2009: Day 1 Product Roundup

— May 05, 2009

Research In Motion kicked off its Wireless Enterprise Symposium 2009 on May 4 with the official release of BlackBerry Enterprise Server 5.0 for Lotus Domino and Microsoft Exchange.

The company also announced a strategic alliance with HP that, among other solutions, will offer CloudPrint for BlackBerry smartphones. The nifty web-based service will allow users to print emails, documents, photos and Web pages using a BlackBerry smartphone to the nearest printer at any location. It's a printer-agnostic service that will be offered to BlackBerry Internet Service subscribers as well as BlackBerry Enterprise Server customers.

On the device front, RIM is reportedly planning the next generation of the BlackBerry Storm, as well as an EDGE-only device, the 8520, which uses an optical trackball for navigation.

RIM is also progressing with its unified communications play, announcing its latest Mobile Voice Server optimized for use with Cisco Unified Communications Manager.

The solution, developed by RIM as part of Cisco's Technology Developer Program, features deeper integration with BlackBerry Enterprise Server and direct SIP integration between Cisco Unified Communications Manager and BlackBerry MVS Server for improved manageability, scalability and ease of deployment.
