| | Re: Blackberry and Exchange
Exceedingly simple with a BlackBerry data plan. You can use the built-in mail app and have true push email, multiple accounts all in one place, etc. I have both GMail and an Exchange account on my BlackBerry. I have a total of 5 email accounts and all function perfectly.
Note that corporate Exchange accounts are often governed by the company you work for. Mine allows OWA access so I don't need BES and I'm not governed by an IT Policy. They can be very restrictive.
Also note that not all email providers support push email. The BlackBerry might be willing and able, but if your provider doesn't support the IMAP/IDLE protocol the email for that account might not be instant push. GMail, however, is indeed ready for full BlackBerry integration so your experience with GMail should be excellent.
