Chalk Pushcast Software, e-learning per aziende sui BlackBerry

Dobbiamo fare un salto indietro ai primi mesi del 2009 quando RIM ha acquisito Chalk Pushcast Software per il mobile learning e la comunicazione. Da allora non abbiamo avuto nessuna altra notizia se non proprio di recente quando RIM ha confermato la realizzazione di una versione per il proprio tablet BlackBerry PlayBook cambiandone il nome in BlackBerry Pushcast.
