Worth buying for company?

Hi

 

We are running BES 4.1.x and have about 1000 users.

 

So far, everyone has been very impressed with the 9700 device. That said, with the advent of the iPhone, a lot of our users are pushing for a BB that is similar to the iPhone yet has all the advtantages of a Blackberry (users, eh? Smiley Happy )

 

We are thinking of bringing in the 9800 when it's released, but I was wondering what people's initial thoughts were to and and any common problems associated with it for those that are already using it?

 

Thanks a million.

Re: Worth buying for company?

I think its great, its a nice meld of storm 2 and Bold 2.

 

Our Canadien office will be getting 20 of these once released.

 

Just watch out for old apps that are not compatable with OS 6.

Re: Worth buying for company?

I have used it now for over 3 weeks, this device is awsome for work and even for play time.

 

There are a bunch of posts about people having legit issues, but they are not as many as people would lead you to believe. There might be a few glitches as this is a new OS, but the out of box unit does perform as well as my 9700 Bold 2 did.

 

You have 30 days from AT&T to return the device, buy one and test it for yourself.
