Re: BB 10 and syncing with MS Outlook

Good questions!

 

Lots of info on BB10 has not yet been released, and RIM doesn't always comment on forward-looking issues like that, but they have been much more forthcoming with info on BB10.

 

Personally, I hope it does do as you ask. Currently, the PlayBook does not hasn't for year and half and nothing announced or fixed on it. I hope it's not the same with BB10.

Re: BB 10 and syncing with MS Outlook

thanks for quick reply.  too bad that RIM is not forthcoming with what i think is an real issue for many business users.  i confess that i bought a W8 HTC last week since the verizon rep told me it syncs with Outlook out of the box. it DOES NOT.  i am returning it after spending hours getting it set up with outlook.  it is a basic consumer phone and inferior to my Storm.  MS should be ashamed of itself.  i will never get an iphone either, so i feel very confused about what my next phone should be since i live by Outlook.  my Storm is dying and i am not sure what do do if it does.  

not familiar with the playbook and the fact that it does not sync with Outlook does not bode well for BB10 phones!

Re: BB 10 and syncing with MS Outlook

I have been "told" BB10 will sync with Outlook as current BlackBerry models do (calendar, tasks, memos, contacts), but nothing substantiated. I probably feel better about it than you do... but.

 

For now, it is what it is. I think we'll know some soon.
