Virtual Blackberry OS on Windows Mobile revealed

Back in April 2007, Research In Motion announced plans to expand its support for Windows Mobile devices with a new software application suite.

RIM originally planned to release the virtual suite by the end of 2007 but this was delayed and the company went silent. It appears that thanks to some spy photos and a blurry video, RIM is about to release the suite. Blackberryreview.com posted photos of the suite yesterday and have followed up with a video demonstration today.

The software has been built to replace the old BlackBerry Connect. Essentially the BlackBerry OS is running as an application on Windows Mobile virtualizing the BlackBerry OS. The application suite has all the BlackBerry 4.2 OS features in it and appears to function exactly as it would on a normal Blackberry device.
