Stop comparing oranges to apples guys. This is OS looks solid and will meet and exceed the Blackberry users expectations. Remeber bb has its own fanbase as well. While android is great its just not a viable buisness solution yet. This is excellent and I give 2 thumbs up. Thanks RIM for listening.

it is apples to oranges, your right. It looks quite solid as a demo video, so let's give em a chance. If it looks like that on the real thing, then they may finally be back in the fight. As far as android not being a viable business solution, thats incorrect. The only time it wouldnt be would be if the company uses a RIM email client and requires BB's to run. Android is quite capable with exchange. In fact, the MotoBlur enhanced android sets have extended exchange capabilities that outmatch windows phones.

While you are correct about androids capabilities: overall android is still very new and alot of companies would rather purchase solutions which have been established for years in enterprise environment. Its just late last year that android took off because of the google/verizon marriage. Android might be better however windows and blackberry will be a premier choice for a long time just because of established reputations in the enterprise arena. So es google is still not yet a viable enterprise option. Thanks for your support though.
