These are basically BES features for BIS customers. Currently in managed beta. Open beta in the fall. The service will be free of charge.
Again, another reason to love the whole solution, no matter if the coolness factor does not reach the level of Android or the iPhone. Also, we will finally get a more decent browser in a few months time, although I can cope with the limitations of the current one quite well.
Of course, I am never satisfied: Why can't I associate more than one mailbox (e.g. a Domino Mail-In Database) through BES ?! ;-)
The mobile me solution is paid for. Im assuming this won't be. Very nice.
Volker, on a side note: "the fall". Is that a term used in Germany? Just curious as I thought it was a USA/Canada expression only.
No, we say Herbst. ;-)
at school we learned in germany "autumn" ( is british / oxford) and "fall" (is american). As a lazy person I prefer (also) the shorter word.
And of course spring forward, fall back only works of you understand the American word...
Nice feature, which exists for different platforms since ages (incl. BES).
What makes me angry from time to time, that all features I would expect from a modern Smartphone are available, but not on one device/plattform. And this is not a technical limitation. It is marketing, stupid.
