What factors can trigger the need for a change? I’ve been using a Blackberry 8900 for a year now. Lovely phone. Totally swear by it. Unfortunately, there have been issues syncing it. Earlier, with a Mac I used. And now again, with a Windows 7 computer I have.
To elaborate, the BB Sync doesn’t play well with Outlook in Win7. Some dll and fixmapi stuff I don’t care to learn about. So the question: what next?
Android is appealing. Just need to confirm if it works with Push mail. Can’t live without that now… or maybe (gasp!) Windows mobile? Hm. It’s possible.
It seems Nokia has got everything covered except for Blackberry Connect support. The company has announced that since they are offering a push email service similar to that of Blackberry Connect, they are now direct competitors and as such, they would no longer offer Blackberry Connect support starting of Nokia E71 and E66.
It’s a really odd decision and it clearly shows that selling their email service to end customers is more important to Nokia than selling their handhelds. While this may sound perfectly reasonable to Nokia marketing department, it might turn out as a deal-breaker to some potential E71 buyers.
