Looks like the upcoming dynamic duo of the MPx and MPX220 from Motorola will support Research in Motion’s popular “Blackberry” push email technology. As I understand it, this would made the devices able to receive pushed email when it arrives, as opposed to a traditional system of the email client polling for new mail every n minutes.
No mention is made in the article (it reads more like a press release, and is light on details) about what a carrier would have to do to support this. Probably because no carriers have revealed whether or not they’re going to carry these phones (T-Mobile, I’m looking at you…). The article just states that the software will be available for download in Q4.
I wonder how hard it would be to make this work with my company’s existing Blackberry Enterprise setup? Lots of manager-types here have Blackberry devices, so I know it’s set up on our Exchange servers. I like the idea of having access to my work email, Blackberry-style, but without having to carry a seperate device. Hopefully, I’ll be able to cobble something together once the MPX220 becomes available.
Anyone else excited about this?
