Its new features include ‘BlackBerry Tag’ for near field communication (NFC)-enabled BlackBerry smartphones, a mobile hotspot for up to five WiFi-enabled devices, and Liquid Graphics.
The BlackBerry 7.1, along with its BlackBerry 7 OS predecessor, have been evaluated and approved for government use by the Defence Signals Directorate (DSD) of the Australian government.
The DSD certification guarantees the OSes meet the security standards of the Australian and New Zealand governments.
