Exchange server/Mobile Phone

  JConcept4 10:17 18 Oct 2010


I'm looking at buying a new mobile phone on contract which will have the best connectivity with my works SBS/Exchange server.

I'd like to be able to use my phone when I'm on the road like I would use my computer when in the office.

Is there a way I can manage my emails/calendars etc from the phone via 3g? I'd love to be able to have the phone running like the computer would be running in the office. Opening pdfs and having the ability to amend office files would be pretty cool as well.

At the min I use a Blackberry and I have all emails being forwarded from my email server to the blackberry email address I have set-up, not ideal, I really want to use the company email domain address rather than a blackberry address.

I was originally thinking of a iPhone due to the amount of apps but as I am only just starting to research should I be looking at other brands?

I can supply more info on the server is needed.

You may have to restart this video presentation from OVERVIEW as the link may start anywhere on the demo.

Cheers chaps

I checked out the Desire earlier and it looks cool, the Desire HD looks even better.

My company are just about to start designing applications so the iPhone was all about being able to show the apps to clients etc but I presume they'll be building apps for all the different mobile OS's used at the minute.

How easy are all these phones to sync to an exchange server? And will they sync ok via 3g when on the move?

Thanks for the help

I am not familiar with exchange servers, but pretty sure that the Desire HD will cover your needs, plus some!
