#Blackberry Enterprise IM v3.1 Brings #Lync & #Skype Federation



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:

  • Presence
  • peer to peer IM
  • multi-party IM
  • Photo?

While photos show a “Call” button, it appears that IM is only supported to Lync/SameTime.
