Telstra Launching BlackBerry Connect

Telstra, Palm, and Research In Motion (RIM) today announced that BlackBerry Connect for the Palm Treo 650 smartphone on the Telstra Network will be available early next month in Australia.

Telstra customers now have a wider choice of devices that support the robust and secure capabilities of the BlackBerry services and a wider choice of wireless email solutions that support the feature-rich Treo 650 smartphone.

BlackBerry Connect enables new and existing Treo 650 users to benefit from many popular features of the BlackBerry "push"-based architecture via BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

BlackBerry Connect for the Treo 650 smartphone supports the following features:

  • "Push" Corporate Email delivers messages automatically -- and wirelessly -- to the Treo 650 smartphone's VersaMail inbox. Changes to the inbox, including read/unread status and deletion, are automatically synchronized between the user's PC and the Treo 650.
  • Wireless Calendar Synchronization keeps the Treo 650 smartphone's built-in Calendar up to date remotely, allowing users to receive, accept or decline meeting requests on the go.
  • Attachment Viewing lets users view Excel, Word, PowerPoint, or PDF documents while on the road.
  • Remote Address Lookup (RAL) allows users to search their corporate directory wirelessly for email addresses without the need to download every name to the Treo 650.
  • Extends the benefits of BlackBerry Enterprise Server to the Treo 650, including centralized device management, IT policies such as over-the-air device disablement and password device lock, and Triple DES encryption supporting end-to-end security.
