We told you this was coming back in February so I doubt any of you are surprised. One of RIM’s admins has confirmed in the official forums that BlackBerry Unite! is no longer available for download and support ends on July 2nd, 2010. Plenty of time for RIM to release Groups or a better solution using what they learned from their mistakes.
BlackBerry Unite was a promising piece of software that failed so bad in its execution that I really have nothing good to say about it. It was a promising offering that fell victim to how RIM implemented them causing it to be doomed to failure…
Hopefully RIM will learn from their mistakes with new Unite! browser, IT policies, and all the other frustrating bugs/quirks of BlackBerry Unite! They also need to get of their high horse of a consumer solution that can compete with BES. Regular consumers also want to be able to sync their contacts, calendar, notes, and tasks over the air!
