RIM to allow Android and iPhone access
Research in Motion confirmed today that it is to open up its network to include Android and iPhone access from March of next year onwards. The move comes as the Ontario based company continues to lose market share to both Apple and the various Android handset manufacturers. By allowing the non-RIM devices access to its network under a new scheme which is to be called BlackBerry Mobile Fusion, the company hopes that it will be able to retain customers, even if they decide to look elsewhere for their handsets.

The news was met with a healthy response on the Toronto Stock Exchange, as shares rose 6% to $18.02 immediately after the announcement was made, however they couldn't quite maintain that level and closed at $17.95.
