Babwa Wawa: LOL. I'm not high. Hell, I'm not even speculating. MS announced Outlook for Android this week, citing fragmentation in the Android market, which is a nice way of saying that Exchange/Android integration sucks. See link below.As for calendar integration, those fixes don't work across all enterprises, but good on you that it works for you. But the very fact that it doesn't work with the default settings, where WP and BB do, along with the various Activesync clusterfarks Apple has perpetrated, underscores the fact that APPL puts enterprise integration pretty far down the list.And yeah, I've used Touchdown. It's a godawful mess. Being the best ActiveSync client on Android is like being the tallest midget.http://m.techcrunch.com/2012/11/27/microsoft-says-many-gmail-users-wo u ld-consider-switching-to-outlook-com-launches-android-app-conversation -threading-more/?p=2&icid=art_next0
USA Prime Credit Peggy: Really, how stupid is it that you have to run TWO BES servers... one for pre-os10 devices, and a completely different one for version 10 and up. Nail in the coffin right there.
Mad_Radhu: lohphat: How about stable and reliable enterprise group calendaring support.For the last two companies we have been at, Exchange works just fine Calendaring and PIM. I've never used a BlackBerry, so pardon my ignorance, but what can a BES do calendar-wise that an Android /iOS/Windows Phone handset CAN'T do? I was under the impression that the BES mainly just acted as a middleman for Exchange and the BlackBerry for most companies, anyway, so Exchange calendaring features would always be a superset of BlackBerry features for most users.
Mad_Radhu: It is probably because I've been using Windows Phones, but those features have both been working flawlessly on my recent phones. OOO auto-replies work especially well because I get the option to set different wording for internal and external replies.
AcneVulgaris: R.A.Danny: I guess it is possible. Apple made a fairly decent comeback.RIM doesn't have a Steve Jobs returning to yank their heads out of their asses.

lohphat: How about stable and reliable enterprise group calendaring support. Bberries are not smartphones, they are phones with a PIM and a real kb. That's all I want in a phone, not a game or video console.
