Blackeberry wtih imaps - ical and ical schedule
 
bonjour a tous.

Je souhaiterais acheté un black berry pour des raisons professionnels afin de pouvoir recevoir entre autres mes mails. Sachant que je n'y comprends pas grand chose j'ai quelques questions afin de m'assurer de pouvoir l'utiliser avec nos outils (enfin les ingénieurs qui travaillent avec moi) :

Le blackberry supporte t'il :

IMAPS
ICAL

Est il compatible avec :

ICAL contact et l'agenda.

Merci de votre aide

Blackberry is not the solution you need. Blackberry devices do not do e-mail in the traditional way. Although with much pain it is possible to get a Blackberry to do IMAP mail (and therefore IMAPS), it does not do it natively and instead relies on a Blackberry Pull&Forward server. From a business point of view you should either buy a Blackberry Enterprise Server, or simply not buy ANY Blackberry devices. I recommend not using them at all.

To that end, if you want native IMAPS and iCal support on a smartphone then the most reasonable option is an Apple iPhone. While I have no love for Apple, nor their computer offerings, their smart phone is definitely the best of a bad lot for the usage you mention.

For my company, I have just rectified the mistake someone made of purchasing some Blackberries by having them replaced by iPhones. The users of the phones are very grateful as they work as expected where Blackberries did not.

thank you for your answer.

If I take a Nokia N97 or a LG gw620, it's better ?
thanks

In my opinion, no. Those devices are capable of imaps, i do not know if they are capable of ical sync, however they do not do imaps anywhere near as well as thd iphone and ipod do. As soon as you introduce multiple subdirectories the Nokias run into major performance issues and the LG user interfaces are mostly a cheap clone of Apples that are not as stable or functional.
