Email on BlackBerry 10
Anyone had a chance to try email on BlackBerry 10?
For all the warts on the old Blackberry OS, damn it handled email well! The link blinks, you click the mail button and instantaneously you see your email. Other things like twitter and facebook fed in nicely, as did multiple email accounts. Setup of email was easy too.
On the PlayBook, it's ok, but I wouldn't say "great". There are a few things that drive me nuts:
1. It routinely has connection issues with some of my email providers. Not sure if that's the PlayBook's fault or the provider's fault but one of the accounts often fails to login into the provider and transport email.
2. When I delete emails from the PlayBook, they don't disappear from my email provider in some cases
3. The biggie: there's a speed problem. On the PlayBook, a light blinks. When I click the email program, it doesn't launch instantaneously like on the BlackBerry. Rather, it waits to load up my existing emails, then it syncs. There's a delay between the blink and the email that I never saw on a BlackBerry phone. Drives me nuts!
4. The email program can get a bit sluggish. My suspicion is that this is again an AIR issue and hoping that Cascades is much snappier.
