Blackberry mobile devices can connect to Nexus using the Blackberry Internet Service (BIS) and Outlook Web Access (OWA).

Once set up the connection will provide access to your email only. Calendaring and other features of Nexus will not be available when using BIS. For full access to Calendar information you will require access to the Nexus Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES).
