Feature Details for BIS 3.1 & 3.2 Leaked!

BIS 3.1 With BIS 3.0 just around the corner for North America out friends at BBNews.pl let us know about some details for BIS 3.1 and 3.2. We had heard a little about BIS 3.1 before which mentioned that it would include 2 way calendar sync for Gmail but that looks like it was pushed off until BIS 3.2. Still RIM is working on getting 2 way email read/unread sync first so I doubt calendar sync is a priority.
From the details:


v3.1 (June 2010)

  • Two-way contact (address book) sync with Yahoo! and Windows Live Hotmail and Sync ML (ALT-N)
  • Ability to share credentials on the device for an overall easier
  • User able to self delete BIS account (added security)

v3.2 (October 2010)

  • Calendar sync with Yahoo! and Google
  • Small business management console

What do you think? Anybody else just waiting for RIM to support full ActiveSync in BIS so we can get 2 way sync of EVERYTHING including email, calendar, notes, contacts, & tasks?

  1. October for Google Calendar sync ?!?

  2. No contact synchronization for GMail and Google Apps users in version 3.1 of the BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS)?

    Are you serious?

  3. lame! lame! lame!

    How much R&D money does it take to make BIS sync with Google??? You only made $1.9 BILLION in net income last year. sheesh! Toss a few more mill at making BIS sync with Google, another few mil at implementing a browser that doesn’t totally suck, and imagine a world where we aren’t embarrassed to say we still have blackberries.

    We don’t need more 4 digit modeled bolds/storms/curves/tours/etc… We need the friggin software to not look/act like its 5 years old.

    Seriously RIM, turn down the suck. This is getting painful.

  4. Google Sync for blackberry syncs all ur google apps for you.

    Whats the problem?

    • You are incorrect – Google Sync for BlackBerry OS only synchronizes contacts/address book and calendar data, nothing else… Tasks/to-do and memos/notes do NOT synchronize.

      Furthermore, GMail and Google Apps users do not have TWO-way synchronization of their inbox, meaning that users often have to delete messages twice!

  5. Does anyone have any answers on BIS 3.2? I want to know if the calendar sync via BIS will allow for multiple calendars as gcal sync currently offers. I mean; my gmail account has about 4 calendars that I use and sync to my BB. Will BIS 3.2 allow for this or will it only sync my primary/default calendar?
