Nokia says 'no' to RIM client for E71

Nokia said that it is not considering a Research In Motion BlackBerry email client for its top-of-the-line E71 smartphone, according to a report in Unstrung. Nokia shot down the idea, despite the fact that it runs a RIM client on many of its other phones.

"We don't have any current plans to have a Blackberry client on the E71," said a Nokia spokesman. "We can't say it's never going to happen, but there aren't any plans now."

For its part, RIM said it would continue to work with smartphone manufacturers, including Nokia, to bring the BlackBerry Connect client to smartphones.
