Not a good day to be RIM...

...as Microsoft has just announced Direct Push, its push email services for Exchange and Windows Mobile. It's going to make the mobile email market an interesting place, especially as this coming as part of a service pack for Exchange...

From the press release:
Windows Mobile Direct Push Technology. Outlook information, including e-mail, calendar, contacts and new support for Tasks, is pushed from a direct connection between Exchange Server and a Windows Mobile-based device, providing users with immediate access to Outlook information, without the need for an additional and costly server infrastructure required by other solutions on the market.
Of course, it'll be lost amongst all the Apple/Intel rumours...

Time to keep an eye on the RIM share price...
