    Here's a snip from a yahoo article about the law suit RIM has been in:

    RIM has been forced to cough up, but the settlement paves the way for the company to begin selling its Blackberry Connect software in the US, something it had been prevented from doing by the lawsuit. Blackberry Connect allows non-Blackberry devices to access RIM's push email service, allowing it to grow its user base beyond owners of its own handhelds.

    WOW! I hope that means BBC will be available this year. I work in a BB shop and from what I understand when this is available and loaded on my Treo 650 I will be able to access the BBES at my company.

    I have seen the two above links for almost a month now. From what we are being told it is 2nd or 3rd qtr this year. I am not sure how this settlement comes into play, hopefully it will speed it up.
