BlackBerry users “using” Office 365 rejoice. MS has decided to make this service free of cost. According to their official blog:
We have exciting news for Microsoft Online Services customers. We are in the process of updating pricing for Hosted BlackBerry Service for Exchange Online to make this service available free of charge. Starting today, BlackBerry mobile e-mail for new Exchange Online customers is now free through our Business Productivity Online Suite (BPOS). For existing customers, we expect to be able to provide more information later this month on how you can take advantage of this change.
In addition, Hosted BlackBerry service will be available for free with Office 365 after it launches later this year.
Blackberry-maker Research in Motion (RIM) will introduce a new BlackBerry cloud-based service later this year. The service will be hosted, licensed and supported by RIM who have committed to offer their new BlackBerry cloud based service for Exchange Online starting at $0 per user per month.
The last underlined part sure sounds sweet to us. Nothing much to add in here.
