BES 5.0 SP1 Coming Next Month – Adds Open Office File Support

BES-5.0.1 One of our secret agents sent a link over with the documentation for the upcoming release of BES (BlackBerry Enterprise Server) 5.0 Service Pack 1. I don’t have a solid date for release but they told me that it should be coming either by the end of this month or the next. There are some interesting new features additions in this new version but here are the highlights:

  • Open Document Format (ODF) Support – Support for .odp files and .ods files on BlackBerry devices. These are OpenOffice format files for wordprocessing, spreadsheets, and presentations.
  • VMware Certification
  • BlackBerry Browser device dashboard – Mobile friendly
  • Support for Microsoft® SQL Server® 2008
  • Support for Windows® Internet Explorer® version 8
  • Support for importing Wi-Fi® profiles and VPN profiles from a .csv file
