Android on RIM devicesI’m sure that I’m not the first person to suggest switching from BB OS to Android. Although, there are some details that I think are important to make this work:
- Keep the high quality look and feel of the devices
- Have Wi-Fi on the phone
- Have the killer BlackBerry keyboard.
- Have a large screen touch device with a slide out BlackBerry keyboard.
Sync for Contacts and TasksThis is an area where RIM could really jump in and dominate. With their experience with sync and BlackBerry devices and their experience with infrastructure in the secure messaging area they are uniquely positioned to be able to make this happen. It is amazing that in present day there is still a need for a seamless way to sync contacts and tasks between devices. What would it take for RIM to meet this need?
Provide web applications for viewing and managing contacts and tasks.
Provide sync software for BBOS, iOS, Android, OutLook on Windows and mail/reminders on OS X.
