But the latter, stung by these allusions, wants clear, as explained TechWeek Europe : compatibility will be whole, including with the PlayBook tablet.Putting perfume developers will ensure in the next version of BES (5.0.4), all necessary synergies, including backward compatibility with existing terminals proved, in the context of maintaining a uniform experience.
