One of the major drawbacks of having a Windows Live Workspace has finally been eliminated: the (in)ability to connect with a Blackberry!
I personally am tech-savvy enough that I don’t require the assistance of Windows Live to update my website or check my email, but its super easy to navigate interface and the capability of accessing your entire account (email, contacts, documents, website, etc.) from anywhere in the world with an internet connection is perfect for my dad and other users of our corporate account.
Obviously, you can imagine my excitement when I went to Nextel.Blackberry.com and entered my corporate email addy and password (just out of curiosity, to see if the two finally decided to be friendly) and voila – I was instantly configured and received a “success” message on my device.
Way to go guys!!!
PS – There is still one drawback on the Blackberry side of things… the (insert your service provider here).Blackberry.com manager doesn’t work with Firefox. LAME! I hate having to switch to IE to change my email signature. Maybe they’ll stumble across this blog and fix that 🙂
