BlackBerry Internet Service 2.7 (BIS) Feature List – Prepare to be Unimpressed

RIM has really set the bar low when it comes to BIS releases. There have been a few exceptions like 2 way sync of email but overall they just seem like a marginal upgrade that took RIM 3 months to release. Josep spotted this one knowledgebase article on RIM’s website detailing the new features in BIS 2.7. I can’t say I really care for any of them… I cannot believe that these features are high on the requested feature list for BIS.

What is the BlackBerry Internet Service? 

BlackBerry Internet Service 2.7 includes improvements to the BlackBerry smartphone user experience, including improved usability and email account integration.
Help Screen

The improved Help screen is designed to allow the following:

  • Send service books
  • Open the BlackBerry HELP web site on the BlackBerry smartphone
  • Access BlackBerry® Answers
  • Contact information for wireless service providers

Language Options

  • The BlackBerry Internet Service UI is now available in Thai and Indonesian.

  1. Where is calendar and contact sync. MobileMe can do ii, why not BIS?

  2. Yeah I know every other device has this already for regular consumers…

  3. RIM – making the iPhone look appealing… ugh…

  4. I’m 1 step from plopping down $600 for the N97…

  5. Once again, RIM does not deliver. I’m so close to going with a different company.

  6. This CANNOT be everything… I refuse to believe that.

  7. Why do ppl always have high expectations from RIM releases????

    If you are really sooooooo upset why not take out a hosted BES solution?

    Apart from Contact & Address Book sync…. I am curious as to what else ppl expect…?

  8. If RIM wants to impress, they’ll add the ability to wireless sync contacts etc. with the BIS server, AND be able to login to the BISserver and manage your contacts. It’s clear RIM cares far less for their BIS users than their BES users, look at all the features BES can do (even without and Exchange server) that BIS can’t. It’s sad. If RIM REALLY wants to make a push into the consumer space, BIS needs an overhaul almost as badly as the device web browser needs.

  9. If youre trying to reach consumers, you night not want to force them to find a BES workaround…
