    LOL! The wait continues. Tease us with a "RIM" announcement, yet no mention of a date. I'm amazed at the lack of service to its consumer to allow such discussions on a topic that RIM could end by simply announcing a date for the release. I guess the reason for my venting comes from missing out on a great promotion to get the Empower email viewer for free, which I held out waiting for the update. Now this announcement leads me to believe the Documents To Go will be at a charge, where its my understanding that the new models already come with installed. Am I wrong with that last statement? Sorry for the long reply.

    Re: Documents To Go by DataViz for BlackBerry devices - Product Update

    Cool.... but I'm still not clear on whether or not this'll be included (free) with the latest updates for server/phone...

    One post says yes, it will be, another claims "Pricing has not yet been finalized but it is expected to be consistent with similar mobile solutions in the market today."

    Which is it... really. I mean, it seems like it'd be worth ~$20/user, but it's something people have been needing for some time and RIM ought to either give it to people, or continue to let these 3rd party apps to simply exist on their own merits.

    As I posted in another thread, this functionality has at least one of our users VERY excited... he's chomping at the bit to get this working on his Blackberry.

    Will DocumentsToGo for BlackBerry OS support the superior Open Document Format (.odf) files and the BlackBerry Unite family/small-business solution?

    In my opinion, it's not worth a dime it if it doesn't support these two features...
