BlackBerry updates Fusion with new features for iOS and PlayBook
BlackBerry manufacturer Research in Motion has launched an update of its Mobile Fusion device management service, adding new features for its PlayBook tablets and iOS devices.
Among the new features are the ability to manage the distribution of apps to Apple handsets and configure PlayBook tablets wirelessly.
Jeff Holleran, senior director for enterprise product management at RIM said: 'Organizations are increasingly looking for a trusted partner to help them manage the proliferation of both corporate provided and employee provided or BYOD mobile devices. While BlackBerry Mobile Fusion will allow customers to manage BlackBerry PlayBook tablets as well as iOS and Android devices today, it will also prepare customers for a simple and straightforward upgrade to BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10, when it launches together with the first of our new BlackBerry 10 smartphones.'
BlackBerry has also rolled out the availability of the service to an additional 37 countries, meaning Fusion is available in 81 nations.
