Research in Motion's BES 4.0

BlackBerry makes it easy to connect mobile professionals to their organization's messaging system.

Good
• Improved installation and management features

• Good security options
• Wider server and client platform support

Bad

• Not all device-management features available on all device platforms

• All your users will want their own BlackBerry

BlackBerry Enterprise Server 4.0 for Exchange, starts at $2,999. Research In Motion, (877) 255-2377. www.blackberry.com

For this review, I tested BES 4.0 for Microsoft Exchange in my home lab and throughout the Washington, D.C., area. (For a review of BES 3.6, go to www.mobilepipeline.com/ 19201871.) I used two servers, one running Exchange Server 2003 (Service Pack 1), the other running BES 4.0. Both machines had 1 GB of RAM and ran Windows Server 2003. On the client side, RIM supplied me with a BlackBerry 7780.
