Research In Motion is gearing up to plug IBM's Lotus Instant Messaging and Web conferencing software into its BlackBerry wireless devices.

Support for the software will arrive in RIM's lineup later this year, the companies said Tuesday. Under the deal between RIM and IBM, BlackBerry owners will be able to use the Lotus Instant Messaging client to reach their existing corporate IM contacts.

The support will also enable server-based tracking of messages, a feature aimed at helping businesses comply with government information guidelines.
