RIM focuses on really small business

Five can now go BlackBerry picking

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Research In Motion (RIM) has launched its BlackBerry Professional Software, for deployment in firms where between 5 and 30 people feel bereft if separated from their email.

The package incorporates all the core features of RIM's Enterprise Server, but is designed to run on the same computer as the local email server rather than requiring its own box.

As well as the obvious email capabilities, the diminutive version also supports the Mobile Data System (BlackBerry MDS), which means all those third party applications work too.

BlackBerry Professional Software comes in at around $100 per user, with discounts for more users. Anyone buying five BlackBerries before the end of November can get a free five user license for the software by registering the devices with RIM.

Anyone deploying the devices would be wise to remember the adage that those who respond first are not necessarily those offering the best advice - something larger companies dependent on BlackBerries are already prone to forget. ®
