Windows Mobile embraces the Blackberry

Posted by Tricia Duryee at 10:38 AM

You probably thought it would never happen, but it did: a Windows Mobile phone is coming with full Blackberry e-mail support.

Aside from an occasional rumor that Microsoft is going to buy RIM, I don't think there have even been hints that Microsoft and the Canadian company may work together.

According to PC Magazine, AT&T announced the Tilt, a Windows Mobile phone designed by HTC, is the first Windows Mobile device to come loaded with the Blackberry Connect software, which allows a user to have a Blackberry-like experience on the device.

It reported that the Tilt will cost $299.99 with a two-year contract, starting Friday, which ends up being a pretty reasonable price since it comes with a 3-megapixel camera, GPS, Wi-Fi, and access to the fastest AT&T network.
