It looks like Blackberry Enterprise IM version 3.1 now has Lync and Skype federation. Blackberry notes:
“Want to securely IM with your customers and partners? You can chat easily cross platform with colleagues, customers and partners as BlackBerry IM now enables federation and public IM connectivity – whether a federated partner like Microsoft Lync or a public IM providers like Skype – all from within the same client.
Appears to bring these features:
- peer to peer IM
- multi-party IM
While photos show a “Call” button, it appears that IM is only supported to Lync/SameTime.
