simply put D - all the above.
1) WiFi browser for surfing internet specific to WiFi.
2) BIS / BES email over WiFi (seemless handover on either) - BES needs specifically to setup WiFi Access Points configured for BES servers.
3) VoIP with TMobile's @Home setup, personally owned (ie. Linksys/Dlink) WiFi Routers, or public routers (remember your data is already encrypted from device until BIS or BES thru the internet).
4) 3rd party applications from Cisco, Avaya, etc will use the WiFi components - installing specific SIP/UMA/PBX support codecs or whatever for that VoIP usuage - thats compatible with corporate PBX phone networks.
1 - unsure if the WiFi browser will be signifantly faster.
2 - usuage on other networks may not work
3 - How to get rid of that My5 service function & application (cod/alx file references included). Bah!
