BBleaks threw up some more details about BIS 3.0 and I’m personally really looking forward to this. The latest info about BIS 3.0, tells us we’ll see:

  • OpenOffice file support: presentations, text documents and spreadsheets.
  • Support for WMA (Windows Media Audio).

Previously, we heard BIS 3.0, coming in March of 2010, will improve the Gmail plugin so as to sync deleted, read/unread and sent messages between the messages folder and your Gmail. BIS 3.0 will also include the ability to add and remove labels from your device.

BIS 3.1, which is rumored to arrive soon after, will feature the ability to:

  • Synchronize Google Calendar
  • Synchronize your address book from Hotmail account
  • Synchronize your address book from Yahoo
  • Yahoo mailbox will cause an automatic download of Yahoo messenger on the device

Live Messenger and Hotmail coming to BlackBerry

Comments

MicroRIMAs if RIM wasn’t getting cuddly enough with Apple via iTunes support in the Bold, they’re also making nice with Microsoft by giving Hotmail push capabilities and supporting Live Messenger. The only other company to get the red carpet rolled out like that so far has been Google, and to a lesser extent Yahoo!, but clearly RIM’s willing to work with just about any of the big players. Expect this to go live come summertime. Thanks, BBSync!
