The details about the upcoming BES 5.0 have been released on BB Forums Australia. RIM has updated their website to include all the product documentation (including video tutorial) for BES 5. BlackBerry Partners will now be able to download the software (Exchange and Domino) from the BlackBerry Universe which indicates a release date isn’t too far away.

Included PDF Documentation:

* Release Notes
* BESX Install Guide
* Upgrade Planning Guide
* BESX Upgrade Guide
* Feature and Technical Overview

Other Inclusions on the Forum:

* BES 5.0 Video Tutorial
* BES 5.0 for Exchange
* BES 5.0 for Domino

Note that if you purchase 4.1 now the 5.0 update isn’t free. You will continue to get service pack updates for 4.1 until it is “end of life” (approximately 24 months). So if you’re about to buy a BES, you should really consider waiting for the release. BES Express can be upgraded but you will still be limited to your 15 users. Expect more details soon.
