BIS 2.8 has been scheduled for launch on September 10th.
What is BIS? – (No, it doesn’t stand for Big Iron Spaceship)
BIS stands for Blackberry Internet Service. Basically, it’s the email service provided by a carrier.
BIS 2.8 is supposed to have some pretty exciting features, including 2 way google contact syncing, automatic login, and enhanced email setup. The only problem is that these features are only available to devices running OS version’s 5.0 or higher, (blackberry tour). Something is telling me that the rest of these devices running lower versions won’t be left out this. It’s even possible that we could receive an official OS update before then!
