Best phone to sync with Outlook
One of my headteachers is going to get a new phone and he wants it to sync with Outlook on his office machine (he is running WorkGroupShare to share calendars between his computer and the other admin computers on a peer-peer network).
I know with my Windows Mobile Omnia all I have to do is plug it in and it syncs with Outlook using ActiveSync.
However, I wouldn't inflict a Win Mobile touchscreen on a user unless I had to - will the other contenders (IPhone/Blackberry etc) simply sync up with Outlook when you plug them in?
BLACKBERRY ALL THE WAY!!!
I use a Blackberry Curve 8900 which you can get for cheap(ish) now on contract or buy a payg handset for around £220. I have 4 e-mail accounts configured at the moment, it doesn't need to sync through a program like iphones through itunes, you just add your e-mail account as you would on outlook except its easier as all you do is put in your e-mail address and password and the phone does all the smtp settings (etc.) for you. When ever i get an e-mail within 2 seconds I get an announcement noice on my phone. I can reply and create new e-mails using it, and e-mail people who are in my phones address book.
I personally think the blackberry range are the best for this are to be honest they are built for this type of work, kids have bloomin' iphones as they see them as toys. If you want professionalism and quality choose the blackberry.
