iPass launched Blackberry iPassConnect Client, an enterprise Wi-Fi client. The application works in conjunction with the BlackBerry Enterprise Server, giving IT administrators the ability to remotely deploy and manage how the application is used by employees. This functionality saves IT departments significant time and effort by negating the need to physically recall every handset to update it with software.
As part of the iPass Mobile Office service there are no additional contracts to sign, start-up fees to pay, or credentials to manage.
iPass is available for all current and future Wi-Fi-enabled BlackBerry smartphones, including:
- BlackBerry Bold
- BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220
- BlackBerry Pearl 8120
- BlackBerry Curve 8900
- BlackBerry Curve 8320
- BlackBerry Curve 8350i
- BlackBerry 8820.
Freely available for download, the client can be downloaded and accessed simply by entering an iPass username and password. iPass login credentials are not restricted to a certain number of devices so users are free to make use of the iPass service across multiple iPass-enabled notebooks or smartphones.
iPass Mobile Office also supports Windows Vista, XP and 2000; Max OS X 10.4, 10.5 and 10.6; Symbian S60 Third Generation devices (versions 9.0, 9.1, and 9.2); Windows Mobile 5, 6 and Pocket PC 2003; and the iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, and iPod touch.
