BlackBerry to Support Google Messaging

January 13, 2006|From Associated Press

BlackBerry e-mail devices will soon support the Google Talk instant-messaging and Google Local mapping programs, the maker of the hand-helds said, extending the Internet titan's push to put its services on mobile devices.

Financial details for the deal between BlackBerry maker Research in Motion Ltd. and search engine leader Google Inc. were not disclosed.

Google Talk, due for launch before midyear, will not be the only instant messaging service available on a BlackBerry. Research in Motion offers BlackBerry Messenger for users of the device to chat, and there are some rival services.
