the "MobileMe" exchange system costs $99/yr on top of the AT&T data plan at $30/mo... a benefit that can be had for free from Google Gears with an iPhone. in the case of BB users, simply getting a BIS plan is nearly half the price.

i use Google Gears with my laptop and BB. maybe i'm missing something?
I have BIS, that's the problem... BIS doesn't offer over the air syncing of calendar, contacts, etc.. the way BES does. When I make a change in Outlook or on my device, I'd like the other to recognize it immediately. MobileMe seems to solve this for the average user (although they leave out note syncing... )
