BlackBerry Email on QNX Might Not be Push

N4BB is reporting that the new update for the PlayBook that includes native email may not be powered by the BIS/BES system that we all have come to know and love.  RIM had to completely rebuild the systems that run the email when the implemented the QNX software that runs the PlayBook.  There will be separate software to drive the email on the PlayBook that will allow for BES access as well as the ability to use ActiveSync with the PlayBook.

While it might come as a surprise to some, abandoning the “norms” when it comes to email might just allow RIM to include support for Apple/Android support in the future.  The email setup will be more along the lines of what users expect with Android and Apple phones.  There might be a refresh to the system that will allow the “push” email that made BlackBerry what it is today available in the future.
