Earlier today, Bell announced the availability of BlackBerry Unite! to its Canadian BlackBerry subscriber base. I dropped word of the news in our Carrier forums, but left it off the blogs as it would be hitting our Weekly Software Round Up Friday morning.
HOWEVER...*news flash* it turns out the Bell-Canada copy of BlackBerry Unite will work even if you are on another Carrier. Sweet! I just downloaded a copy and am going to give it a try shortly. If you're inclined to do the same thing, you can grab a copy from the link below.
"The idea behind the software is very neat. The content sharing and syncing is similar to a BES. One of my favorite parts is like a BES you can restrict what users do. I have my phone completely blocked down so I couldn't receive incoming calls or use any third party applications. NOW WARNING! If you install this application MAKE SURE YOU DO A BACKUP OF YOUR DEVICE as you will have to do a hard reset to remove the Unite! software from your device when finished (unless you want to keep it on?). It works just like a BES server and locks your security IT polices in place until reseted."
