Default Re: Importing Calendar/Contacts From Bold 9900 To PlayBook?

Exactly currentodysseys. Your use case is one example of what I was talking about.

Anyone who prescribes the BB Bridge as the only security solution doesn't think the Playbook is a work device. There is no difference in the security profile between a cell phone, laptop or playbook. Except now, when the prescribed method to sync contacts (and calendar) is to link it up to Google cloud. For many reasons, not every company uses BES.

The security partitioning should be left up to the policies of the company, not by RIM. Rim needs to just provide the hooks. The lack of syncing between outlook, bridge, BBDesktop, or importing vcards is a lack of insight and functionality; not a security feature.
