The release also provides the foundation for the first public release of the updated Sprint Mobile Email Work Calendar. The new work calendar, available OTA 12/4, syncs with one or more Exchange (OWA) based calendars, and allows for meeting creation, editing and alerting on the go.
Also included in MR4:
* Java refit to better enable 4-way/OK and text input to LCDUI widget-based applications
* support for native document viewing for many popular office document types including .doc, .pdf, .ppt, .xls and others (requires Sprint Mobile Email Work upgrade expected 12/4)
Individual application upgrades for the MR4 period are expected to go live the week of 11/21, with Sprint Mobile Email Work Calendar scheduled for early December (all dates are estimates and are subject to change with no notice). Exact go-live dates depend on application vendor.
I love my phone after an update. It always acts like it should. I look forward to being able to view .pdf files. Keep up the good work InstintAdmin. Will we ever be able to sync with Enterprise Server for IBM Lotus Domino? If not I am afraid my days are numbered.
Thank you for the update information, especially the OWA calendar "hope to go live" date.
Looking forward to other applications being updated during the week of 11/21 (again, hopefully).
