Over on my BBHub BlackBerry blog I've just posted an item noting an interview wireless industry news and reviews site Unstrung did earlier this week with David Heit of BlackBerry-maker Research In Motion.
Heit tells Unstrung senior editor Richard Martin that VoIP is playing a big part in BlackBerry's near-term future plans.
"As more of your desktop phone features become available on your handheld you'll end up using them interchangeably. We're looking at voice-over-IP as a major direction, so that instead of giving an employee a desktop phone, you give them a Blackberry, so it's a mobile phone device as well as a secure connection for email," Heit said.
"And when you add the mobile application capability we've been talking about," Heit added, "then you're really talking about true convergence."
