BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS) 4.1 Docs Show Upcoming Features, Rollout Dates
BlackBerry Internet Service is the breathe and life of a BlackBerry device for consumers. As such, RIM constantly is working on improving it for the 53.09 Million email integrations globally and 33.4 Million total active subscribers, despite its archaic architecture. RIM looks to be pushing out BIS 4.1 along with the upcoming OS 7 devices. Back in March, we exclusively reported on RIM’s 2011 software roadmap, which included BIS 4.1 between July – September.
According to the slides, BIS 4.1 will be rolling out to Asia Pacific – September 10th, Europe – September 23rd, and North America – October 8th. BIS 4.1 feature enhancements include: improved email experience, inbox priming, account management updates (Security Wipe Email Control and SIM Swap Experience), QQ and 139.com email integration, carrier reporting, UI changes, and language support for Latvian and Lithuanian. Hit the break for a look at a more extended features overview from the BIS 4.1 slides.

The message improvements should've already be here. Can't believe messages are still truncated.Proud owner of:

They should have increased the attachment size to at least 20 MB.
They also should allow a user to compose an email in HTML format. Plain-text is so 1995.

I agree, I am loving what everyone else who enjoyed in this news. Although I won't be due for an upgrade for OS7...Are you really that bored to read my signature, or am I just that interesting to you?

And yes I'm complaining about it. I've been using the BIS since 2007 when it was still at 2.x. I have 2 email accounts that I've used in all that time. My home pop3 account and office exchange account. With all the updates to BIS since then, only 2 have been a plus for me. Html email and the automated login.
All the ballyhooed gmail hotmail/live stuff means nothing to me since I don't do, nor will I ever do gmail or hotmail.

I'm surprised and glad they're addressing the issue about interrupted e-mail delivery when swapping SIMs abroad. Happens to me a lot when I switch carriers abroad, I have to re-register my e-mails on the new carrier abroad and it's a hassle because then my PIN gets stuck to that provider, so in order to avoid that I use web e-mail on the browser or use third-party mail apps.

At the moment the following Email reconciliation features are supported. Imho RIM should expand these features as fast as possible.
