BeamBerry Solutions Announces the Release of BeamBerry 3.0 to View, Print and Store E-mail Document Attachments on BlackBerry Devices.
Fairfax, Virginia - December 31, 2007 - BeamBerry Solutions, Inc. announced today the release of BeamBerry 3.0 which marks a significant next step in the evolution of the BeamBerry viewer. The key new feature introduced in this release is the ability to view documents that are stored on the memory card (e.g. SD card) and documents that are stored in the internal memory of the device. Documents stored on the memory card or in the internal memory of the device can also be transferred to BeamDisk (BeamBerry file system) where they can be opened for viewing, as well as attached to new e-mails and printed to a bluetooth enabled printer. Additionally, documents from BeamDisk can be transferred back to the memory card or to the internal memory of the device. All of the storage mediums can be browsed via a convenient and intuitive file browser. The release also includes numerous significant improvements in the areas of performance, reliability, security, and contains fixes for several bugs discovered in previous versions.
BeamBerry 3.0 requires RIM operating systems 4.1 and later. Users who still use 4.0 will need to upgrade their BlackBerry devices to OS version 4.1 prior to installing BeamBerry 3.0. In order to view documents stored on the memory card or in the internal memory of the device OS 4.2 or later is required.
BeamBerry gives BlackBerry users the ability to view, print and store e-mail document attachments that they receive. BeamBerry supports PDF, MS Office (Word, PPT, XLS), RTF , and ZIP document types. BeamBerry software works on virtually any BlackBerry model (running OS 4.1 and later), not just the latest device.
BeamView, BeamBerry viewer service, enables BlackBerry users to view document attachments exactly as they would look on a regular computer. Users are presented with a thumbnail view of the pages in the document and can then open any of the pages, adjust the zoom level, move from page to page, etc. The quality of the documents viewed (i.e. text, images, formatting, etc.) is that of an original document. Opening a document attachment is very natural. All it takes is navigating to the e-mail message containing the attachment and opening it with BeamBerry. The document opens in a matter of seconds, with no extra e-mail messages arriving in your mailbox.
BeamPrint, BeamBerry printing service, enables BlackBerry users to print their document attachments to a printer via Bluetooth. If the printer is not Bluetooth enabled by default, a Bluetooth printer adapter can be connected to the printer's USB port to make it Bluetooth enabled. BeamPrint supports over 1500 different printer models.
BeamDisk, BeamBerry virtual file system can be accessed via a very convenient and intuitive BeamBerry file browser and allows BlackBerry users to store their document attachments on the BeamBerry server. Users can create various folders in which to organize their documents and perform various basic operations on the attachments (cut, copy, paste, rename). All documents stored on BeamDisk can be viewed and printed. Additionally, BeamDisk documents can be attached to new e-mails. The original e-mails containing these documents can be deleted from the mailbox thus preventing it from being cluttered. With this new release it is also possible to transfer documents between BeamDisk, memory card and the internal device memory.
Over the last year many BlackBerry users have decided to give BeamBerry a try free of charge under the Early Access program. BeamBerry Solutions would like to thank all of the current BeamBerry users for their support and feedback, which has been critical for improving BeamBerry. BeamBerry 3.0 is the first commercial release of BeamBerry and marks the termination of the Early Access program.
