Actually, if you are winning, why not do something extra to continue to stay on top.

Now, I hope their software is more stabile than WM....

Those 2 words don't belong in the same sentence. Remember your talking about WM so being stable is impossible.

I even spelled stable wrong. My fingers could not put stable and Windows Mobile in the same sentence.

Sounds like an April Fools joke to me.

Actually it sounds like something that they would normally release at WES (in two weeks) but they announced it today (with full coverage in the Wall St. Journal) to deflect criticism about their outage last week.

Pure speculation on my part. I've asked Oliver Stone to investigate.

Apparantly RIM has a higher opinion of the WM platform than do some of its biggest fans. Personally I like them both. BB's are great but my 8125, Blackjack and Mpx220 are all way cooler than my 8700c, even with the Optus 4.2!!!!

Yes, gadgetfanatic, we all know of your love for WM.
And that's fine.

We ran a nice pilot here. Brought in the 8125, MDA, SDA, and the Q. Gave them to technical gadget people and took away their BBs. Put up the entire MS Infrastructure to offer push e-mail.

Everyone has gone back to a BlackBerry.

To each his own.

I think RIM is brilliant in offering this.
