    BES 5.0 Service Pack 1 coming next month!


    Berry review has put up that one of their ninjas sent them a link to a document stating BES 5.0 SP1 will be released next month. While they dont have a solid date yet they do have some nice info on what it will include. One of the big ones is going to be that it adds open office file support. Here is a list of a few of the things added:

    • Open Document Format (ODF) Support – Support for .odp files and .ods files on BlackBerry devices. These are OpenOffice format files for wordprocessing, spreadsheets, and presentations.
    • VMware Certification
    • BlackBerry Browser device dashboard – Mobile friendly
    • Support for Microsoft® SQL Server® 2008
    • Support for Windows® Internet Explorer® version 8
    • Support for importing Wi-Fi® profiles and VPN profiles from a .csv file

    This should come as good news for all our BES users.

    Anyone knows if RIM maybe also will launch a new BPS? Or if they will not so far away from the BES launch?

    I've read a lot of rumors and threads over on the BlackBerry forums about people wanting to know about BPS' future. Unfortunately noone really seems to know. But, the general consensus is that RIM won't abandon it completely and will offer a 5.0 "lite" version of some sort to fill the void.

    Who knows, in other words....
