re: Android Vs. iOS Vs. Windows Phone 7: Enterprise Shootout
The one thing this article fails to mention is that when you talk about Enterprise, you need to talk about the people who manage all the devices in your Enterprise. Meaning, the IT Staff. Blackberry will still be used by governments and large businesses because of the STRICT policies that can be configured using Blackberry Enterprise Server. There are only limited things you can do with a device that merely connects to your Exchange or IMAP server to sync calendar appointments and emails. There are some apps that allow for the remote wiping of devices, but still the feature list of policy management for iPhone, Android, and WM7 are incredibly limited compared to what Blackberry has to offer.

WP7 linked inboxes are NOT an all or nothing affair. In fact you can have MULTIPLE Linked Inboxes in WP7 Mango.

Your quibble with the WP7 Mango email system is as a result of you not knowing how to use it properly. You can have as many linked inboxes as you like on WP7, making it the most flexible email system of all the platforms.

So, for example, you can create one linked inbox for your Gmail and Yahoo, give it a name, and it becomes a linked inbox tile that can be pinned. This leaves your Outlook account which can be a second inbox with it's own tile. Play around with it and you'll see just how good it is!

What I often find disappointing is that authors of "shoot-out" type articles often don't know enough about all the systems to make a fair review, and this is just one example of not knowing how a feature works, therefore misinforming readers about the benefits of a particular system.
