Poll for Insight
We're currently using Windows devices and Zimbra Mobile and are having a lot of device issues. Management is pushing us to find a new solution and I'm posting this poll in the hope of getting an idea of what's in use inside the production corporate environments that you all operate within.
We have found iPhones 3GS/4 running iOS4 on AT&T to be the most reliable with ActiveSync, as well as DAV for shared items.
Later Blackberry models with AstraSync software also work well.
The Droid market is a mess; different carriers cripple the OS in different ways and all of the phones get frequent firmware updates which alternatively fix bugs and introduce new regressions. We had two identical Droid phones from different carriers; one worked fine the other wouldn't sync at all.
Windows Mobile we have found to be problematic with frequent software hangs.
Hope that helps,
I've probably setup 2 dozen Droids, the ones from Verizon are weird, but do work. The EVOs I just love!
I've also setup 3 IPhone4s and 1 iPAD, they just worked.
Our company uses iPhones, but at our customers I've seen all the cases listed in the poll. From what I've seen iPhone and Android devices work best, Windows Mobile and Nokia N-series are OK. Blackberry via IMAP is simple enough, though I can see users wondering why their calendars and address books were left out; and having a BES instance takes some tinkering to get it to work and I'd rather not have to do it.
