Re: New to BB. What will be the new small business option?

I am confused too.


Why should I care about 20:1 compression and AS doing: "Hi, do I have mail? Hi, do I have mail? Hi, do I have mail?" Whilst

BlackBerry does: Here's your mail!?


* AS: I get a 9 euro a month unlimited data plan. I already have exchange running. I'm done... Not only that, it works with Windows Mobile, Nokia E series (and some N series but not with full support for security features), apple i-phone and probably more coming.

* BB: I have to get additional software, often accompanied by additional memory on my SBS server, a 25 euro a month BES data plan and I'm still only national, which in all honesty, is no problem whatsoever for 90% of our customers as they don't leave the country. Not to mention, if they go above 30 users I have to get an additional server.


Not sure where you're at, but unlimited data on phone is pretty cheap here... So other than some customers getting some hard things in their pants because blackberry is the buzz, where is the advantage?


Maybe SMB just isn't the market for blackberry. Considering their pricing/requirements they don't seem interested in it atleast.

If you do knot understand maybe you only need a simple WM device then.


You can use a BlackBerry HH with BIS and connect to exchange. Some thing need wired sync but it can be set up auto matic
