Default BES 5.0 and old devices

Please Login to Remove!

We still have a large number of old 7250 devices on our BES and we are trying to convince management to replace these old devices.

I have seen a chart that compares what each supported device is capable of doing on the BES 5.0 but can't seem to find it. Any other documents that show what these old devices will lose out on would be helpful too.

Thanks for any help and a push in the right direction,

no device currently released will get full BES 5.0 functionality ... as you need handheld OS 5.x to do that; and RIM hasn't released it yet.

That said, look at what functionality you have with 4.1 SP6; and that will explain what you'll lose out at with 5.0 ...
