Default BB, no activesynch?

Yes i know there's a third party solution... hear me out though.

I've supported BB's and BES since 4.0, so i'm very familiar with them in corp environments.

However I do work for small companies now and they do not want to nor can they invest in a BES. BIS doesn't synch contacts, cal, and tasks.

So, out of the box Android and iPhone support active synch. We can discuss which one is better at what but at the end of the day getting data from mail/cal/contacts is what is important... so on a BB you either get BES, or buy a third party app.

I'm hearing the same thing from them, they need that ability... their email host offer activesynch so why wouldn't they switch to android or iphone? I'm trying to talk them out of it but i'm starting to agree with them, the BES/BIS model is not a solution for small business.
