The real question will be, will corporations want to support multiple phone platforms and will users, especially higher up execs, demand support for their iPhones and Pres. At my company, we have a BES server and also have users using EAS to sync their iphones and WM devices. It all works nicely together.[/quote]

I agree completely Carl. The BB will stay put in the corporate environment and I don't think it will be pushed out anytime soon. I just think that the Pre will target the 90% of phone users who do not need the secure, instant email....just as the iPhone has done. I think Palm and Apple, as an added feature...include integration into corporate email synchs...but it was not its intended purpose. They just want to reach a broader/niche market and penetrate it a bit as icing on the cake. But...it will complete very fiercely with BB (Storm, 8900 & 900) and iPhone for the all purpose media, text, browser and personal email users. Plus...that damn charging stone is VERY cool!
