  RIM signs with MS, IBM, Novell for IM
Enterprise-level instant messaging. Quote-unquote. A step better than the late (and not at all missed) Yahoo Enterprise IM, since it appears will work with the handheld devices. Integration with LCS with trials starting in September?

I can definitely see doing IM on the 957-style keyboards, but not on the 7100 series. The 7100 keyboard is not built for easy typing, and I say that as someone who's been using one for six months now. I could type like a demon on the old keyboard, with this one it's painful to type more than a sentence or two: I thought it would get easier with time, but I think I achieved top speed after day 4 and have not improved since.

RIM needs to expand their service offerings in a really bad way: with Good nipping at their heels (and providing far more basic services for the price) they really need something to distinguish themselves.

But I still think they're going down the toilet unless they get their iPaq integration together.
