The two companies aim to enhance a user’s mobile computing and communications experience through tighter integration between Lenovo ThinkPad laptop computers and BlackBerry smartphones.

Lenovo’s CEO, Yang Yuanqing said, “With more and more mobile professionals relying on both their BlackBerry smartphone and ThinkPad laptop PC, we view better integration between the two devices as a necessity. Today’s announcement is the first step in combining these best-in-class solutions to deliver a more useful and powerful mobile work experience.”

Lenovo Constant Connect, the first solution developed by Lenovo, will allow enterprise email received on a user’s BlackBerry smartphone to be automatically synchronised via Bluetooth onto the user’s ThinkPad laptop – even if the ThinkPad laptop is off.

In addition to greater flexibility and convenience, it can also reduce the need to use the laptop with fee-based Wi-Fi networks. Lenovo Constant Connect is expected to be available from Lenovo and its business partners in the later part of this year.

Research In Motion’s Co-CEO, Jim Balsillie said, “Lenovo is adding significant value for our mutual customers by developing tighter and more seamless integration between Lenovo ThinkPad laptops and BlackBerry smartphones. By leveraging the industry-leading, push-based connectivity of the BlackBerry solution, Lenovo Constant Connect will simplify email synchronisation on the laptop and provide mobile professionals with greater flexibility to manage their email on the move.”
