Nokia has released its mobile e-mail solution to compete with RIM's BlackBerry.


The Nokia One Business Server aims to give business the freedom to select a combination of devices, delivery options and deployment methods to meet individual enterprise needs.


Nokia's regional enterprise solutions general manager, Vaughn Madeley, said 91% of Australian business travellers need access to e-mail and company data. He claimed Nokia's offering is far cheaper than BlackBerry.



While BlackBerry has a strong presence among C-level executives, Madeley said it is often rated as too expensive for the rest of the workforce.


"Nokia One Business Server is a cheaper solution for mobilising your workforce," he said. "This is the next step to where we're going with Nokia Enterprise Solutions over the next six- to 12-months."

Bah! This thing uses SMS to notify you of new email, then you "pull" the email down to the device through presumably the web browser?

Sounds slow, cumbersome and expensive (SMS can cost 50 cents/message! Imagine someone who receives over 200 emails/day!)

They say its alot cheaper, but I cant find a price anywhere

Plus you are forced to buy their hardware server to make it work.

I dont think this IT department will be considering this thing anytime soon unless there is some MAJOR changes..

Even goodlink is miles ahead of this IMO.
