Blackberry Connect (BBC 4.0) for E90 Released !

E90 users finally get Blackberry Connect (BBC 4.0) now. It has been more than 3 month since announcement. On 26 March 2007, Vincent Washington, a Business Development Manager at Research In Motion (RIM) revealed Nokia's upcoming E90 Communicator will be the first device to support BlackBerry Connect 4.0, a major upgrade over the current version (I still confused with this statement, because I see the E61i get this BB 4.0 earlier..)

The BlackBerry Connect program enables the mob-e-mail leader's push e-mail and data access solutions to work with non-Blackberry devices. BlackBerry Connect 4.0 adds the ability to generate an encryption key wirelessly, wireless activation of a device in the enterprise, AES in addition to Triple Data Encryption Standard (DES), Dutch and Brazilian Portuguese language support, and the ablity to erase and disable a BlackBerry-enabled device

So for corporate customers BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) software tightly integrates with Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino and existing enterprise systems to enable secure access to e-mail and other corporate data. This includes the automatic synchronization of messages to the E90's inbox, calendar syncing, attachment viewing, Triple DES encryption, Remote Address Lookup of corporate directory, and centralized device management, with support for IT policies such as over-the-air device disablement and password device lock.

And, as with individuals and small businesses with BlackBerry handhelds, BlackBerry Connect will enable E90 users to access ISP e-mail accounts through the hosted BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS).

European Only

Currently, BBC 4.0 only avaiable for European user. But don't worry, It still works though on an Asian handset, some people using the European BBC 4.0 on the Asian E90, and work properly.

You can stored this application on phone memory or memory card, but I think it will be a bit faster if stored on the phone memory. BTW, this BBC 4.0 on E90 is much faster than E61i (you can easily notice the difference)
