BlackBerry, Microsoft team up for cloud services

While Microsoft and Research In Motion are competing for the hearts and minds of smartphone users, that won’t stop the two companies from teaming up to help business users get their software on the go. RIM introduced the BlackBerry Cloud Service for its handsets and this will enable BlackBerry users to access Microsoft Office 365.

On its web site, RIM describes some of the benefits for BlackBerry users:

This secure service, hosted by Research In Motion (RIM), directly links Microsoft® Exchange Online with BlackBerry smartphones to offer reliable, mobile access to synchronized email, calendar, contacts, tasks and memo pads.

From almost anywhere, the intuitive, web-based interface provides the tools administrators need to perform common tasks like resetting passwords or finding, locking and wiping lost or misplaced devices.
