Du hast eindeutig zu viele Handys...

... and wouldn't it be good if you didn't need a dozen different, proprietary adaptors to charge them up?

Vowe, are those 10 phones in your pocket or are you just very pleased to see me? ;)

I am just hoping I don't get mugged today.

Volker Weber, 2009-07-16

Cool stuff actually. All of new ones charge over MicroUSB. All of them.

Thanks to the European Union.

Sweet! You're going to write something about the Galaxy?

Joachim Bode, 2009-07-16

*Very* nice collection :) If you don't find it here, its not there.

BTW Volker, it is a N86, not N82.

Musstest Du Deine Geräte mit zur ARD nehmen? Die Sammlung im TV kam mir verdächtig bekannt vor ;-)

>All of new ones charge over MicroUSB

Deeply shocked ... and very impressed!

Nick Daisley, 2009-07-16

Hubert, of couse you are right. Fixed.

Thomas, klar. Die beim Fernsehen haben alle iPhones. :-)

Joachim, yes I will write about the Galaxy. Once I can test the real thing. For today I only had a dummy that can fool a camera. O2 apparently has Galaxy phones and seem to sell them very well, but there are no press samples. We currently don't have one in the lab, let alone at vowe's magic flying circus.

What I do have is the Jet, which has a gorgeous screen, but proprietary software. I shall be writing a review before I return it in two weeks.

Did you already play around with "enterprise" integration (Domino/Exchange) and central management of all those different phone worlds? Would be nice to hear about the differences in real world.

By the way an update to "BPS is dead": You just should try to install BES5 with a BPS license... (I tried it yesterday ;-)

Peter Meuser, 2009-07-16

Und jetzt sollen wir Dir die Würmer aus der Nase ziehen, damit Du uns verrätst, was rauskommt?

Volker Weber, 2009-07-16

BES5 läuft auch mit der der freien BPS-Lizenz (4.1) ohne Beanstandung - interessant, oder?

Heute wird sich zeigen, ob sich problemlos weitere CALs hinzufügen lassen. Die Anzeige "License type=Enterprise" in der BES-Administration läßt darauf hoffen, dass es die früheren Beschränkungen von "Express Editionen" etc. nicht mehr gibt. Wenn man bedenkt, dass T-Mobile in der Praxis mit jedem BB für Business-Kunden auch gleich eine CAL verschenkt, wird das Ganze richtig spannend.

Vielleicht kann dazu jemand schon etwas von offizieller Seite sagen?
