    RIM Vs Microsoft

    managed to get everything working fine and put both RIM's 7290 bb and Microsoft powered xda mini s to the test.

    (tests where done on different servers so server conditions could have affected results)

    bb7290 bb on BES
    XDA mini s syncing with exchange 2003 sp2

    Test - i send a 20kb email to both devices and noticed that the bb received the e-mail 12sec faster than the xda which even after receiving the email took about 2-3secs to display it,which could just be because i was overclocking the xda, i managed to increase delivery speeds to the xda by disabling SMS & SMTP on the Exchange frontend server which meant
    notification by HTTPS was a bit faster but increased speed by only 4sec. which still left the bb the winner

    overall the blackberry is still the better of the two devices i would use personally - i used the xda for about 3hours and found data usage was really high and it looked like it was having problems holding a GPRS connection ( the rom i installed was a beta ver so could have affected it). i believe that microsoft still has along way to go. there are features that microsoft have included that i would like RIM to include in future products.

    - I tried a remote wipe of the xda , within a few seconds of issuing the remote wipe from the Exchange frontend server, the xda started to sync, rebooted, and when it came back up, was as if I had performed a hard reset and all personal data erased

    finally results

    RIM 8/10 - there are features that could be added to make the blackberry a better device

    MS 5/10 - beta version meant that a future release could be better, and some on the new security features are quite nice

    Cool test. Glad it confirmed my thoughts that the BB kicks ***!!! Any device that is not a BB is just plain 'swoot'

    forgot to mention RIM is instant email where as MS works on the device sending a HTTP request to Exchange server to monitor inbox, contacts etc once exchange server notices any changes exchange will then issue a response to the device to let it know there has been a change and to start syncing with exchange server (so not really push email)
