I still think the blackberry way of synching with outlook is way easier.
I know. Who cares. I don't.
My company had Blackberry for a few years. When things worked, it was fine. But supporting BES (Blackberry Enterprise Server) got to be a mess, especially with our old Exchange server. And when RIM goofed, their goofups would result in down time measured in days.
RIM screwed themselves up over the past 3 years. The industry is moving towards secure, but more open architectures for mobile devices. RIM underestimated the iPhone's popularity and blew a chance to further gain inroads with individual consumers. They then kept trying to rollout expensive phones with outdated hardware. The 2 CEO structure was a disaster with the company too slow to adapt, move out quality products, or entice/reassure their customers. BB10 has been delayed by over a year. I believe BB10 is not backwards compatible with BB7, so anyone buying devices now will have to replace them when/if BB10 rolls out.
