Vodafone Launches BlackBerry Connect for Palm Treo 650 Smartphone in Australia
Vodafone Australia has released BlackBerry Connect for the Palm Treo 650 smartphone on the Vodafone mobile network.

The BlackBerry Connect software enables Vodafone's new and existing Treo 650 users to have push-based wireless email and calendar synchronisation with BlackBerry Enterprise Server.

BlackBerry Connect on the Treo 650 smartphone supports Microsoft Exchange and IBM Lotus Domino customers with the following features:

  • "Push" Corporate Email delivers messages automatically -- and wirelessly -- to the Treo 650 smartphone's inbox. Changes to the inbox, including read/unread status and deletion, can be automatically synchronised between the user's email account and the Treo 650.

  • Wireless Calendar Synchronisation 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 in original format.

  • 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.

  • Enables centralized device management, including support for IT policies such as over-the-air device disablement and password device lock, as well as end-to-end security with Triple DES encryption.
