I think that one thing that Microsoft will have an extremely difficult time matching is the nearly universal acceptance that the BlackBerry is safe and secure. This is why it is so popular with Government and Big Business because the name of the came is "protect your data". Microsoft is routinely blasted by industry experts for haveing the most vulnerabilities...but that is because it is feature packed! I think the Microsoft based devices will take off in the non-BES and small office market, but any threat to the big business/Government market is still a few years off...at best!
