RIM Announces Multi-Platform Enterprise Solution for Smartphones and Tablets


RIM has announced new multi-platform management solution for enterprise. The solution will incorporate secure device management for iOS, Android, and tablets all managed from convenient web-based console.

RIM intends to launch this service for general availability summer 2011.
