RIM has previewed a new browser for the BlackBerry at Mobile World Congress.

Developed using WebKit technology, the browser’s speed was stressed, and its appeal to consumers.

It is claimed that it will download files quicker, and make web surfing a more pleasant experience, offering faster scrolling and zooming.

The browser certainly sounds very nicely streamlined on paper, and according to a report, it scored 100% on the Acid 3 test for rendering the web.

When it will be ready for release isn’t known at this stage, as RIM refused to be drawn on dates.

RIM also announced that it will be giving away BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express as a free download in March.

The software allows BlackBerry smartphones to synchronize wirelessly with Microsoft Exchange or Windows Small Business Server.

Mike Lazaridis, Co-CEO of RIM, commented: “In a marketplace where smartphones are becoming ubiquitous, BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express significantly raises the bar by providing a cost-effective solution that allows companies of all sizes to support enterprise-grade mobile connectivity for all employees without compromising security or manageability.”
