Hi from a pre-newbie
"Pre-" because I haven't bought a Blackberry yet, but am seriously considering it. One big thing that's really important to me, though.........
Which "bits" of Outlook 2010 can I sync with a Blackberry? To be specific, I really want to sync the following Outlook 2010 features with the equivalent application in the Blackberry:
Notes would be desirable, but not essential. Email, also, is desirable but not essential (I can use web access to it when I'm on the road).
I should point out that my Outlook 2010 runs stand-alone on my desktop PC, and is not connected to Exchange.
Could a Blackberry, with its associated desktop software, meet my needs?
Many thanks in advance for any comments.

Make sure it is Outlook 2010, 32-bit, not the 64-bit package.
Yes, on all four of the above.
No on email, on a personal BIS account. BES will reconcile your email, but a personal BIS plan will not.
You will setup your email to push to the BlackBerry device directly from your email server.

Perfect answer! Thank you!
Yes, I'm running Outlook 2010 32-bit, so it sounds like it should all be fine.
Right, then, now I have to choose which model...........
Thanks again, Guru III.

Sync-ing with Outlook 2011 & What BB go for?
I have a similar question, and I hope someone might help me figure out the answer to my question:
I'm just about to go for a BB, but I really have to figure out a few things beforehand. As I'm new to BB, please excuse my dumb questions...
1. How's thorough & comfortable is the Sync-ing between BB and PST-Files generated by MS Outlook 2011? RIM says their BB will sync with Outlook, but I really need a device 100% compatible, managing several phone numbers, emails, synch-ing as well categories for each contact I've got in Outlook, the full range of it: I'm working with more than 2000 Contacts in my Outlook that I daily need, I can't allow myself to make-do what the Sync-ing tool possibly doesn't achieve by itself...
I tried Android & KIES (Sync-ing tool), but there's basically only an exporting feature of all Data from Outlook to Kies, and then a Sync feature between Kies and the Smartphone, no Sync-ing back and forth to & with Outlook. + the Categories are not Sync-ed, which I cannot afford.
2. Taken the prerequisit explained above, are there any BBs to prefer, or do all perform just as fine & thoroug with syncing? The additional options I'd like but are not necessary are the following: GPS / Dual SIM
Thanks for your precious help!
