BlackBerry E-Mail Rates Cut

Microsoft may be pushing Windows Phone 7 as hard as Jack LaLanne used to push his juicer, but there is still room for Microsoft mobile partners. Microsoft last week cozied up to Research in Motion (RIM), agreeing to drop e-mail hosting fees to those that sign up for Microsoft's Exchange Online either through BPOS or the new Office 365. That could save you a cool $50 a month.

A broader deal between the two has also been struck, but not yet fully detailed. According to reports, Microsoft will handle the storage of BlackBerry customers' data through the cloud. Microsoft will also reportedly do the same for RIM's upcoming tablet.
