This paper compares the Research In Motion BlackBerry solution (BlackBerry mobile devices and BlackBerry Enterprise Server) with the Microsoft® mobile solution (Microsoft Windows Mobile® and Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 SP1 with Microsoft ActiveSync® technology) by analyzing features of the user experience and the administrator experience. From a user perspective, features support access to data sources, customization, and ease of use. From an administrator perspective, features are tools that support and control mobile devices, most importantly, secure mobile messaging and sensitive corporate information that will be stored on and transmitted by mobile devices. Use the information in this paper to understand the benefits and shortcomings of both solutions.
