RIM Announces New Web Browser, Super Apps, and BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express

Big things are happening in the world of RIM. During Mobile World Conference 2010, the company unveiled several new applications that are designed to improve the usability of its BlackBerry smart phones.

First up is a new browser that RIM co-CEO Mike Lazaridis touted as being capable of accelerated browsing over carriers’ networks and rendering Web pages more efficiently. Unfortunately, a formal name and release date weren’t revealed.

Also in the works are what RIM dubs “Super Apps”, contextual applications that will be integrated into a BlackBerry’s core functions. Lazaridis demonstrated how BlackBerry users can send and read Twitter updates from their inboxes.

RIM also took the lid off another new product, BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express, which is free server software that wirelessly syncs BlackBerry handsets with Microsoft Exchange (2010, 2007, 2003) as well as Microsoft Windows Small Business Server (2008, 2003). Available in March, BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express is for small and medium-sized business customers and companies that want to let employees use their own phones for corporate email, contacts, calendar, tasks, and other business related tasks.
