All of you BIS users rejoice. BIS 2.5 is almost upon us and RIM has released the full feature list for the latest update. Many of these features requires OS 4.5 along with BIS 2.5 so don’t get your hopes up so fast… Thanks Josep for the tip!
In a nutshell:
- Attachment downloading in the native file format
- HTML email message viewing
- Support for Windows Live Hotmail integration
Sadly there are quite a few caveats. For example external images will have to be loaded using the menu button. Not all carriers will support Windows Live push email. You will have to reactivate windows live push every 90 days. read the full details at this link on RIM’s Knowledge base.
