CNET News.com is reporting that Microsoft is "pushing ahead" with its mobile email technology offereing. While brought to market later than RIM's powerful BlackBerry platform, it still see's a large viable market for their product offering.

  • The Blackberry is a triumph of marketing over substance. Now there is a real alternative. And one that does online appointment setting through your smart phone, contact management, email and you can work on your MS office documents too. diarypoint is new generation of mobile computing. It really is the 'office in your pocket'

  • So I checked out this "DiaryPoint" that 'kerry' commented about.

    All it is, is a simple HTML based offering, available to practically any type of web access device. Including mobile phones.

    While the BlackBerry may be a 'triumph of marketing', the world-wide service offering is substantial to say the least. It really is a well thought out service with security, mobility and reliability in mind from the ground up.

    Remember, I'm am a self-confessed Microsoft fan (zelot?) and still believe BB to be the "Gold Standard" to which all mobile email and scheduling should be held to.

    So don't come along and try to marginalize a time-tested global product, just because you've built something that has already been done before - and often.

    Anyone who does not belive me, simply go check out 'kerry' and here service.

    BTW, there is no such thing as the "Office in your pocket". There are, however, mobile productivity tools - BlackBerry being one of the best.
