Research in Motion announces Blackberry Protect, a data protection software to backup your Blackberry. On top of being able to remotely message, lock, and wipe a misplaced phone, you can locate it on a map and take regularly-scheduled wireless backups that make replacing the handset easier.

It's in its trial phase, being available to a few testers this week and will be available for free later this year.
