Default Re: Importing Calendar/Contacts From Bold 9900 To 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.
Are you sure you talking about the right company? It sounds like you want RIM to become more like Apple, insecure.

As it stands there is no way to protect Apple users from their personal and corporate data from being stolen off their iPhone's and iPad devices which is why none of the top corporations allow these devices inside their environments because data what makes their world go around.
