Thanks. Will look in to ActiveSync.
Beyond this or Apples iPhone Utility - which is at 3.2/3.4 works for iPads too - and beyond Exchange Management Console 2007/2010 or OWA; you should consider:

Boxtone,
MobileIron - great solution really.

These offer much better integrated security than Exchange or AIU listed in previous comments.

Our outfit is considering MobileIron since the quick key assets of Boxtone is already available in BES5.

Providers have taken WAY too long to deliver our demo beta PLayBooks thus increasing the iPad solution.

Right now with GoodReader being such a multiple solution application for both iOS models I find it hard to see what real world advantage the PlayBook offers?

Those with USA/Canada based GSM BB's (Rogers/AT&T) have issues getting data working with West Africa region - even though roaming partnership is in place; something with their VLR doesn't match up quite correctly to update a module similar to GGSN (old-school GPRS/EDGE data nodes) for data roaming.

WIFI is NOT as proliferent there as in western countries outside the airport; so without data connection ... no PlayBook fun. We'll see more powerful apps on PlayBook soon enough.
