What I was hoping for where comments on a "alternative" to blackberry just in case it does hit the fan. a large scale corperate solution using "push email", for example
this german based push email solution http://www.space2go.de/index.jsp?language=english
or microsofts upcomming mobile os "magneto" with new technology in Exchange 2003 Server Pack 2 that will push email out to mobile workers
or even possibly Nokia's IBM Websphere in conjunction with the Nokia 9300
smartphone and the Nokia 9500 Communicator.
