    I think it would be nice if all three of these apps were one program on the playbook. It seems like they should be to me...
    It would be more of an information and productivity center instead of switching between all three apps. Is this a good idea or do you like having separate apps?

    I like and use ms outlook. It is how I base everything from. I would want everything to default to that (ms outlook). My understanding is that nothing can do what ms outlook can do. Okay so let's have pb and bb10 do ms outlook native and bridge with outlook.

    There are plenty of Outlook clones for Linux/UNIX its no big deal...just a lot of stock libraries that go with it.

    Since the PB is a __NIX OS you would think that a port of one would be coming...biggest hurdle will be desktop syncing and still stay inside RIM's security structure.

    QNX is *nix? I did not know that.

    Weird, wild stuff.

    The problem with any native third party messaging/calendar app is that it won't be able to run a background service (hence, no notifications).

    So, it's either RIM integrates these apps into one or RIM allows background services and an external developer creates such an integrated app.

    Thanks Kenny I didn't think about that. Most Outlook clones have no push feature the user has to initiate a mailbox sync. Good call.
