U.S. BlackBerry BIS upgrades to v2.5 on June 28th, HTML email to follow

It seems like we’ve been waiting so long for native HTML email support on BlackBerrys that we never thought this day would come. Thankfully, RIM is planning on upgrading their U.S. BIS system later this month, bringing a host of updates in anticipation of the arrival of their next-generation 9xxx device family. Most significantly, v2.5 of BIS will include support for HTML email delivery and rendering, a move that should finally bring the ‘Berry’s email appearance out of theĀ stone-age. Further enhancements include support for OTA upgrades, calendar improvements, and a bit more. Bear in mind that your particular device will have to support these new features in order to allow you to take full advantage of the update, but seeing as we’ll all be carrying shiny new BlackBerry Bolds by the end of next month, you shouldn’t worry too much.
