Re: RIM has nothing to worry about
Doesn't have push email??? Are you SMOKING CRACK... Windows Mobile 5 will have push email that is equal to blackberry without the cost of a server. Blackberry better start making some better devices because Microsoft is gunning for them. And with devices like this, the HTC Universal and the 25 other Windows Mobile phones that will be coming out in the next year they will start to eat away at RIM's "Domination" of the wireless email market. IT guys want less work, not more. Why buy a BES when you can just run Windows Server 2k3 with a WM5 device.
nskgti has it right on the mark. There are several reasons why companies will want this device over the Blackberry. First, it runs a version of Windows. This will make it easier to train new users because most people are already familiar with Windows. And this will also make it easier to view Microsoft office documents (i.e. Word, Excel, etc) and sync with desktop Outlook. Yes I know the Blackberry can do all this but I'm sure it will be easier with a Windows Mobile 5.0 device. Second, you won't need to get the Blackberry Enterprise Server. Third, the Blackberry stinks as a phone. I'll bet the Motorola will be better. I have the Blackberry 7520 for Nextel service and the phone stinks.
