• RIM KB Article Confirms New Features Of BIS 4.1

    Back in July we wrote about some new features that that were to be included in RIM's new BIS 4.1. We were never sure whether or not these features would make it into the final release. Now thanks to a KB( Knowledge Base) article we now see that all of the features initially reported will be included.

    Here is a recap of some of the key features included in BIS 4.1.

    Improved large email and native attachment support
    Subscribers using BlackBerry smartphones with BlackBerry® 7 installed can:
    receive email messages that are up to 11MB in size
    download attachments in their original format that are up to 8MB in size
    view up to 300KB in an HTML email message

    No interruption to email flow on SIM swap
    Subscribers who insert a new SIM card in to their BlackBerry smartphone, including SIM cards from a different wireless service provider, no longer experience email flow interruptions. The BlackBerry Internet Service only stops sending email to a smartphone when the subscriber deletes all data from the smartphone, not when a new SIM card is inserted in to the smartphone.

    Due to this change, before selling a smartphone, subscribers must delete all data from the smartphone (security wipe) to protect personal information, including email messages and synchronized contacts and calendar events. For more information on performing a security wipe, please see KB28225.

    Note: This functionality will be available when BlackBerry Internet Service 4.1 is released in all regions.

    Inbox priming for new account integrations
    When a subscriber adds an email address to a smartphone, the inbox on the subscriber’s smartphone is pre-populated with up to 20 existing email messages from the email account.

    Additional language support
    Latvian and Lithuanian are supported by the BlackBerry Internet Service. Emails received in these languages can now be viewed on BlackBerry smartphones.

    As you can see there are some significant changes. One thing to note here is that the message receive size has increased to 11MB for OS 7 devices. This will reduce the amount "Truncated Due To Size Messages".

    Let us know what you think in the forums.
