Now that EMEA got their BIS 3.0 upgrade it is time for North America. Bla1ze over @CrackBerry scored the notification that the BIS 3.0 upgrade is coming to NA this weekend on March 28th. In addition RIM has updated their Knowledge Base Article about BIS 3.0 to specifically state that Gmail 2-way read/unread sync will be rolled out by region in Spring 2010. Here is to hoping that is right around the corner.
From the notice of the BIS 3.0 upgrade:
- There will be scheduled network maintenance by Research In Motion (RIM) affecting BIS customers between 0100 CT / 0200 EDT on March 28th and 0500 CT / 0600 EDT on March 28th.
