BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS) 3.0 coming with Enhancements to Gmail integration and Google Mail Plug-in
RIM has announced the latest version of the BlackBerry Internet Service version 3.0. The BlackBerry Internet Service is designed to provide individuals access to email messaging, instant messaging, Internet browsing, and more. BlackBerry Internet Service subscribers can receive automatic delivery of email messages for up to ten email accounts on their BlackBerry smartphones.

One of the new features coming soon are Enhancements to Google Mail integrations (Google Mail Account to BlackBerry smartphone synchronization of read, unread and sent email message status for new Google Mail integrations). This feature will be added throughout the Spring 2010 by region.

There are also Enhancements to the Google Mail Plug-in. You'll be able to create and delete labels using the BlackBerry smartphone. The Google Mail Plug-in requires BlackBerry Device Software 4.5 or later and a Google Mail integration, using Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP), within BlackBerry Internet Service.

BlackBerry Internet Service 3.0 also comes with other features:
+ Additional language support for Basque, Catalan, Galician, Romanian
+ Increased attachment compatibility
OpenDocument presentations (.odp), OpenDocument spreadsheets (.ods), OpenDocument text (.odt), OpenDocument text templates (.ott), Windows Media Audio (.wma)
+ Improved email setup flow for HTML access
Allows BlackBerry smartphone users to reclaim their email address if their BlackBerry Internet Service account is ever deleted.
+ xHTML Support for non-Thick Clients. BlackBerry Internet Service 3.0 is designed to support xHTML for non Thick Client users and provide BlackBerry smartphone users with a richer user experience, allowing for the use of buttons, additional fonts and colour controls when users access and toggle their user settings.
+ Device switch revalidation. BlackBerry smartphone users are required to revalidate all email accounts upon PIN changes. This includes username/password users who log in to their account through HTML, Thick Client, or xHTML (previously WAP). It also includes PIN changes that are completed through BlackBerry Internet Service Administration.
+ Hosted email address passwords
Hosted email address passwords, secret questions, and secret answers are now extended to ‘username/password’ BlackBerry smartphone users. After BlackBerry Internet Service 3.0, only newly created hosted email “Username/Password” accounts will be prompted to create a password, secret question, and secret answer.
+ Carrier Friendly Names
BlackBerry smartphone users will be instructed to contact their specific carrier and will be provided with carrier contact information in HTML and WAP error messages.
