Default App to hold > 10,000 contacts?

We're using BES for GroupWise and I can't allow users to have the entire address book on their phones, as the GW version is notorious for creating dups, trips, and more - not to mention the amount of synching.

Would need to have the data local to the device, no wireless transfer.

Have posted this on the BES forum with only 1 response, hoping for some ideas here.

Thanks!

Well, a product like HanDbase could probably work with a modest amount of programming, but the space requirements could be huge, depending on the amount of information per record and the number of records.

Another alternative might be MiniExcel or eCell if you want to keep less-important contacts in an Excel spreadsheet. Not sure which mobile XLS spreadsheet viewer/editor is faster.

Also I heard Dataviz Documents-To-Go is coming to BlackBerry too.

From the Dataviz web site (if my copying of this is inappropriate, please delete).

Updated Release Information: Due to the high volume of inquiries regarding the release of Documents To Go for BlackBerry, DataViz wanted to provide an update on the status of the project. This product is currently in full development and DataViz is committed to providing a high quality solution which meets the expectations of the BlackBerry community. However, the project is taking longer than initially estimated. Therefore, DataViz is now anticipating public availability in Q1 2008. We thank you for your continued interest in this product and apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause.
