just out of curiousity. -- and I'm not being argumentative...
Define "outlook features."
the ability to access, on the fly, any message out of 60,000+
The ability to access calendars and inboxes of people to whom you are delegate?
The ability to access (soon to be removed) public folders?
That'd be great, it really would, but it would generate quite a load on the network and server. Which might push the lifestyle features off of the device.
And I am seeing more and more, as the Macintosh features get added to the blackberry -- music, photos, 3rd party apps, yahoo!, google suite, web browsing, etc -- the devices are starting to have some serious memory problems which hampers the core functionality of the device. Messages being purged from the device, call logs being truncated, etc...
It is the same thing with work laptops housing 100+ GB of music, photos, movies, from an end users personal life, and only 5 to 10GB of actual work...
Making consumer products out of enterprise tools.
If this is the way it is going to be, the hardware folks are going to have to really step it up. Super small outside, super fast and dense insides, as well as shock and water proof... --i've already replaced half a dozen pearls which were dropped from pockets or given a swim.
