RIM launch BlackBerry Mobile Fusion


RIM has now officially released the entire BlackBerry Mobile Fusion solution, including the Universal Device Service. Similar to how BlackBerry Device Service provides a set of security and management features for BlackBerry PlayBook tablets, the Universal Device Service provides Mobile Device Management for iOS and Android based devices.

Now let’s be clear: this does not turn a random phone into a BlackBerry smartphone! BlackBerry® Enterprise Server (conveniently accessible through Mobile Fusion’s unified, web-console, Mobile Fusion Studio) pushes out 500+ IT policies to BlackBerry smartphones. This is the champagne of enterprise mobility solutions, giving organizations back-end integration and end-to-end security that only BlackBerry offers; accessed through feature rich BlackBerry smartphones in a multitude of form factors that end-users desire.

As more devices come to market, however, IT managers need to accommodate individually purchased units that come into the enterprise, whether by a sales rep deciding to expense the latest handset, a doctor bringing in their personal phone for hospital work, or a field worker getting whatever’s available on special as a replacement unit. Universal Device Service offers you – if not a champagne solution – perhaps a Cava or Prosecco. And, given how individual-liable devices are typically used, this is often quite sufficient. BlackBerry Mobile Fusion finally gives you a solution, managed from a single web-console, to deal with the influx of personal-liable devices in the enterprise and ensures that a range of suitable security mechanisms are in place.

HTC One X: Extended hands-on video and review

HTC One X_rgb_thumbAnnounced at Mobile World Congress in February the HTC One X is the companies latest flagship Android device and what a beauty it is. Sporting a 4.7 inch HD 720p touch screen, 1.5 GHz, quad-core processor and running Android 4.0, HTC can be proud of their latest creation.

With these top end specs the handset is complemented with some great software and superb camera hardware including Sense 4.0, NFC, Beats Audio, 8 megapixel camera with auto focus and full 1080p HD video recording.

Due to us initially having the device for less time than we normally do I have decided to do a video review instead of a written one. I am sure I will have missed a few things out in the video but if you are looking to pick up the One X this should give you a pretty good insight to most of its features.

So click the ‘read more’ below to see the device put through its paces and my final conclusion.
