Top Five Features of BlackBerry 7 for Business Users


BlackBerry 7 OS smartphones

It’s no secret that the BlackBerry® 7 OS has arrived on a whole set of brand new BlackBerry® smartphones. There are many exciting features of the new operating system that enhance the business experience that BlackBerry smartphones have always provided. Here are our top five features of the BlackBerry 7 OS for business users:

Documents To Go® Premium

Documents To Go

This app is a true companion to those who do business on the go; it is designed to allow you to open, edit, save, or create new documents including Microsoft® Word, Excel®, and PowerPoint® files on your BlackBerry smartphone. When you need to make one small change to that report, or a colleague is asking for you to review a presentation, you can make changes quickly and efficiently while on the go.

BlackBerry Messenger 6


BlackBerry® Messenger 6 (BBM™ 6) is preloaded on the BlackBerry 7 OS, and it’s stocked with new features that will help you make your business social. Top highlights include integration with many third-party applications, as well as enhanced collaboration that allows the sharing of information such as location, voice notes, large files, and more.

BlackBerry® Balance™ Technology

The BlackBerry 7 operating system will include BlackBerry Balance technology – a feature that is designed to automatically separate the management of work and personal data on your smartphone. Corporate data can be managed and wiped, while personal data is kept separate. Both personal and work uses are protected, all within an easy-to-manage solution for IT managers to work with. To use the BlackBerry Balance technology, you are required to use the BlackBerry® Enterprise Server v5.0.3 or later or the free BlackBerry® Enterprise Server Express (version 5.0.3 or later).

Liquid Graphics™ Technology

Does your office have whiteboards? Great – snap a high-resolution photo of the board after a strategy session rather than furiously trying to take notes. Are you constantly reading documents on the go? No problem. The BlackBerry 7 OS’s Liquid Graphics displays provide a truly brilliant picture, keeping everything that you do crisp, sharp, and easy to read.

Voice-Enabled Universal Search

BlackBerry smartphones using the BlackBerry 7 OS comes with a voice activated universal search feature so you can easily find an email, contact, song, or even a YouTube® video. This feature is especially useful when you’re connected using a Bluetooth® earpiece or headset. You can also use third-party applications to search for a phrase, such as Twitter® or a map search near your location.

These top five features have served to supercharge both my work and my use of a BlackBerry 7 OS smartphone over the past month, and I’m sure that you’ll also find them useful!

What are you most looking forward to with BlackBerry 7?
