    Amazing.  I have two Blackberries, one Enterprise and the other BIS.  I can get my emails via IMAP (BIS) service and Bridge with Enterprise.   Perfect for a marketing guy and Government worker.

    This is why people are scared of the Playbook.  The functionality is like none other and I’m sure this is just the beginning.

    Standing by faithfully with a truly great Canadian product.  Now we just need some more aggressive marketing.  Stop being the nice guy and really take on the competition head to head.  You have the better product RIM and you know it.
