It’s berry white: BlackBerry announces white Passport, cloud-hosted BES10 MDM platform
Thursday, July 24, 2014/
BlackBerry has announced it is releasing its BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 (BES10) mobile device platform (MDM) and has also shown off a white version of its forthcoming Passport phablet.
Until now, businesses have had to host BES from their own servers, without the option of a cloud-hosted alternative.
In its official statement, BlackBerry says the release of BES Hosted will mean third-party cloud hosting providers will be available to offer cloud-based BES services.
North American cloud hosting providers ISEC7 and Exchange My Mail are the first two companies offering the service.
The new device is set to be wider than a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 phablet and include a square shaped screen and a keyboard. It is one of three devices the company is releasing this year.
