    *Two-way wireless synchronization with Google Mail Contacts* and the Address Book on the BlackBerry smart phone:

    Synchronize Google Mail contacts quickly and easily to the BlackBerry smart phone

    Add or edit Contacts and the Contacts are automatically updated, whether they are updated on the computer or BlackBerry smart phone

    Note: Two-way wireless Contact synchronization with Google Mail Contacts requires BlackBerry® Device Software 5.0 and configuration through email settings on the BlackBerry smart phone. Additional requirements and constraints may be found within the BlackBerry Internet Service 2.8 Documentation Kit. This feature is not supported on BlackBerry smart phones with BlackBerry® Connect™ software.


    *Enhancements to email setup and settings:

    Automatic Login now supports most billing identifiers, which allows new subscribers with wireless service providers that use PIN, IMEI, or ESN as a billing identifier to create BlackBerry Internet Service accounts from the BlackBerry smart phone, without having to create a login user name and password

    Note: This feature will be available approximately one week after the

    *BlackBerry Internet Service upgrade.

    Windows Live Hotmail revalidation:

    With BlackBerry Internet Service 2.8, new Windows Live Hotmail mail integrations will be defaulted to a protocol that is designed so as not to require 90 day reauthorization.

    Note: Existing BlackBerry smart phone users accessing Windows Live Hotmail using Microsoft MSP will still be required to revalidate their Windows Live Hotmail account every 90 days.
    Droooooiiiiiid!

    OWA 2007 exchange

    Was hoping they would address the issue with ISA in OWA 2007 with this update. For companies w/out BES servers, this could really hurt sales to corporate users on BIS.

    Thanks gordtm. I would like to know this too. Would we have to resend service books or do PRL update?

    once they roll the update for BIS, you'll notice that the first time you reboot the phone, service books will be pushed and maybe you'll get an email or alert to notify you about the settings you need to add also I think RIM will have to let us know about, why? Simple if you noticed the BIS upgrade states that you need OS 5.0 on the phone, wich means in my opinion that we are very close to a OS 5.0 official release (fingers crossed)
