I’ve not had time to check this out and I don’t have a Blackberry service, but a reader contacted me about the imap idle on the E71 and E66. I reponded with the facts that imap idle works great on both the E66 and E71 and that I’d ditched my hosted exchange account as the proper push email works great.
The reader then responded with the following email and I’ll a little shocked that it hadn’t been picked up before as well;
I’ve bought E71 on Friday and then sold it Monday because I couldn’t install Blackberry Connect app…a big drawback for the new E-series and nobody blogs about it:-(((. Good one, Nokia! Is is so hard to beat the Bold (Blackberry) with its own guns? BTW, Nokia’s own email beta app sucks big time.
So if you know anymore about Blackberry connect on the new E71 and E66 drop us a line. I also like the parting comment at the end of the email above, "Nokia’s own email beta app sucks big time"…I confess I haven’t tried it as as I’ve no need to a proper implementation of imap idle is all that’s needed.
