Enabling users to stay connected with wireless access to calendars, corporate data, real-time e-mail, and a phone, BlackBerry devices have experienced an explosion in popularity. Many would argue that they have become a business necessity. In the first book to deal with the support and development of BlackBerry devices, authors Johnston and Evers cover everything from how the BlackBerry infrastructure works and the various components that make up its environment to installing a BlackBerry server and maintaining your BlackBerry environment.
You'll discover the different ways in which you can extend the functionality of the BlackBerry (versions 4.0, 3.6, and 2.2), how to roll out BlackBerry devices to your users, and how to create a BlackBerry intranet portal. Ultimately, though, you'll see how developing the BlackBerry platform further can result in a happier and more productive user community.
