Around the time when the E71 and E66 came out and when Nokia Email had ‘started’ to mature, Nokia decided to pull the plug on BlackBerry support for its newer Eseries devices. The move was probably an attempt to push its own solution, however it back fired and I know a lot of people despite wanting an E71 did get it because for some reason they were not willing to give up on BB support.
However, there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel. Tom Furlong, head of Nokia Messaging while chatting about the service let it slip that ‘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‘.
So RIM is preparing their own client for Nokia devices and this time, we’ll hopefully see a roll out across not just the Eseries but the entire range of S60 devices.
