Q&A summary

What is the answer to SmartCloud Notes customers who want BlackBerry 10 support today?

At this time, the hosted BES service that we offer does not support BlackBerry 10 devices. There are plans to support synchronization of mail, calendar, and contacts in the future. You can currently enable IMAP in your SmartCloud Notes company and work with all of your SmartCloud Notes mail from BlackBerry 10 devices. This includes sending and receiving mails from the BlackBerry 10 mail client using IMAP.

Can you talk generally about what's going to happen in the future with BlackBerry 10?

The BlackBerry 10 device, different from earlier versions, uses the active sync protocol. Traveler 9.0, the on-premises version, now supports BlackBerry 10 devices using the active sync protocol. As mentioned during the presentation, no specific dates are announced but BlackBerry 10 support is coming soon. BlackBerry 10 support requires not only a newer level of Traveler in the cloud but also BlackBerry has had to make some changes to be able to work with the SmartCloud. There will be a specific OS level required to interact with the SmartCloud. Once BlackBerry 10 support becomes available, Traveler will support both direct connected as well as an on-premises BES.
