SingTel, Palm, Inc. and Research In Motion (RIM) have announced the availability of BlackBerry Connect for the Palm Treo 650 smartphone.
The operator is the first in the world to offer the BlackBerry Connect solution for the Palm Powered platform.
The BlackBerry Connect for the Treo 650 smartphone enables users to benefit from many popular features of the BlackBerry “push”-based architecture via BlackBerry Enterprise Server. For corporate customers, BlackBerry Enterprise Server software tightly integrates with Microsoft Exchange and IBM Lotus Domino and works with existing enterprise systems to enable secure, push-based wireless access to email and other corporate data.
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 and 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.
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.
The BlackBerry Connect functionality is available for existing and new SingTel Treo 650 customers through SingTel business representatives.
