Re: QNX powered devices

Followup question: Will the BlackBerry Fusion software also manage existing BlackBerry handhelds (OS 7.1 and previous), or will we still need to run BES?

Re: Outage on June 4?

Email started flowing normally within the last 5-10 minutes. I do have some emails that never made it out even though it shows as sent on my BB.
