“BlackBerry Beta Zone for Business offers a tailored experience for small, medium, and large businesses who want to experience and test the latest BlackBerry software and services prior to their market release.”
BlackBerry Beta Zone for Business gives participants early access to BlackBerry software and services and can help enterprises prepare and train for upcoming software releases, as well as influence future BlackBerry products and services by giving feedback to RIM.
RIM has operated a BlackBerry Beta Zone for consumers to let individuals test prerelease apps and services for some time, but the business-oriented component is new. The BlackBerry-maker also announced a redesigned Beta Zone interface.
I’ve been using the consumer Beta Zone since its release, and it’s a great way to get your hands on upcoming BlackBerry software before it is made public.
