RIM's New Blackberry Enterprise Server 5.0 Launches in Q2 2009, Adds Better Desktop Syncing

Research in Motion (RIM)'s Blackberry Enterprise Server 5.0, known as Argon, will launch in the second quarter of 2009 and will include more user-friendly functions, like the ability to view attachments in calendar entries.

Some of the improvements will include:

• Retrieve corporate documents behind firewalls
• Add, read, rename and delete folders on the handset and have those changes be applied to the desktop email client
• Create rules within the inbox to filter email and have those changes be applied to the desktop
• View attachments in calendar entries and meeting requests
• Download and store emails and email attachments onto microSD cards

Over-the-air updates will also be easier for administrators and users in this new version of BES.
