Well, you might want to check the average selling price Nokia achieves with its phones... it is expected to be below 140 USD for this quarter, and they just announced to put more effort on the cheap consumer models - so, this is not even the bottom. And as you seem to like links: http://www.boygeniusreport.com/2008/...-on-consumers/
I do not know a single company in Germany or France that is using Communicators (there might be a few, but it is by no means big), BBs are in almost every company and iPhones are becoming more common by the minute. I had a company Communicator until September 2007 (an a private SE P910i). The first time I used the iPhone of a friend for less than 5 minutes, I did not want them any longer. I got two hacked US iPhones from eBay the same day.
I have been using enhanced phones and PDAs since they exist. Even if possible, I have never edited a Word or Excel file on any of them and it escapes me why you demand BT transfers at a fraction of the speed, when WiFi is available. We have software to mail vCards on all our company iPhones and using the Briefcase software on the iPhone I can exchange documents with other iPhone users and even transfer files to/from my work computer using SSH when away. I never had anything better on any device - the two programs together for the iPhone cost less than 25 sermons for the Treo.
