Research in Motion (RIM) will launch software later this year to turn Windows-based handsets into ‘virtual BlackBerries'.

The software suite will provide users with a virtual BlackBerry application experience, including support for BlackBerry e-mail, phone, calendar, address book, tasks and browser, as well as other applications developed for the platform.

RIM said the suite would initially be available on select devices based on Windows Mobile 6, and will appear as an icon on the screen in the same manner as other third-party applications.

Emitac Mobile Solutions (EMS), RIM's Middle East partner, said there are plans to launch the software in the region.
