This one comes courtesy of Volker Weber. I read one of his tweets about this and searched the web and came up with zilch – I contacted him and it seems it was announced interactively by RIM at an IBM function in Stuttgart that he (I assume) attended.
Exciting news indeed!! Lets see what November brings. I am sure that there will be some official pres release by RIM soon – I can’t wait to ditch my current Small Business BES that is eternally stuck at 4.1.4 and upgrade/migrate to the Express version.
