Hayden has scored once again by getting details on one of the nichiest (is that a word?) accessory for BlackBerry devices. It is called the Bayalink Liberty and it has a very specific function. It allows you to use certain BlackBerry functions from your laptop such as sending email, browsing the internet, or open attachments through the BlackBerryn over Bluetooth. You can read the details below or head on over to Bayalink’s website for more.
The Liberty Key is available now for $99.99 on Bayalinks website. The only caveat is that it mentions that there is only a 1–year subscription? I am not sure what you are subscribing to but I would recommend looking into that before buying. Also keep in mind that there is a snowballs chance in hell that your BES admin will help you setup such a service unless you are on really good terms.
Bayalink Liberty has been designed from inception to be fully integrated to the Blackberry platform with convenience and security as primary foundations.
Once configured, simply plug in the Liberty Key and launch the handheld software. The software communicates between your handheld and the Liberty key via Bluetooth technology giving you the features of your BlackBerry on a regular screen and keyboard.
- Send a message using Liberty, it gets sent from your BlackBerry
- Delete a message using Liberty, it gets deleted on your BlackBerry
- Mark a message read using Liberty, it gets marked read on your BlackBerry
- Request a webpage in IE or Firefox using Liberty and the BlackBerry fetches it for you
- Compose a lengthy email using Liberty or compose it with your thumbs, you choose
- Request an attachment, and it is downloaded for you
- Bayalink Liberty requires that the Viewer be launched from the handheld; this ensures only authorized access to your handheld resources
- The Bluetooth link can be secured with the highest levels of encryption – AES – with our proprietary encryption services for enterprise customers
- No data is ever stored to the remote PC or laptop unless the user puts it there
- If you pull out the Liberty Key or walk out of Bluetooth range, Liberty detects something is not right and automatically closes the viewer
- Additional services can be provided to further lock down the Viewer to align with your enterprise architecture strategy for end user computing.
