BlackBerry Shield Service Details Leak Out

BlackBerry Shield Service Details Leak Out
 
Buy BlackBerry Shield from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now
 

BlackBerry Shield is a new service from RIM that will be out around April of 2010, BlackBerry Leaks reports that the details of Shield have oozed out to the Internet. We know that the service will include remote device wipe, which will allow you to log in from a computer and pull all the data from your phone/memory card.

There will be a "lost and found" screen that allows you to display a custom message on your phone if it is lost. There will be a remote password set/reset ability, and a loud bell alarm that you can set off remotely with Shield. You'll be able to turn GPS/GSM tracking on remotely (which is actually a little scary) in order to see just where you left your damn smartphone.

The cap in Shield will be a wireless backup and restore service. You'll even be able to program your phone to automatically back-up every so often. In essence, Shield will turn the loss of a smartphone from a horrifying disaster, to a minor inconvenience.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
