Rumor Mill: T-Mobile Dash to get BB functionality?

According to an article from The Boy Genius Report, T-Mobile USA may soon roll out a new version of the Dash, a Windows Mobile-based smartphone, with Virtual BlackBerry capabilities. Such a deal would make the carrier the first to take advantage of RIM's program, which it announced in April, to offer software that would allow non-BB devices to access its services. The offering includes: phone, email, SMS, browser, IM, memos, organizer and BlackBerry Maps. It also enables support for RIM's hosted BlackBerry Internet Server for individuals and SMBs as well as the behind-the-firewall BlackBerry Enterprise Service for larger enterprises.
