    Those that have seen it in action, is the implementation a traditional RIM BIS/BES setup or Activesync? I can setup my email via Activesync, but my company only allows iOS devices to connect through this method and BB's through BIS/BES...no Android allowed. Not sure what the policy will be with PB's, but my guess will be a no-go.

    I'm not sure how they would implement BIS/BES on a wifi only device. Perhaps a 3g or 4g playbook will have it. Can you still get BIS/BES email over wifi on your phone with no carrier connection?

    Yes, you can have WIFI only BlackBerry devices on BES. Not sure if this is being changed in BB Fusion but yes it does work for BlackBerry handhelds.

    It seems pretty unlikely anyone has seen it without being constrained by an NDA, so the answer's probably "no".

    And Fusion is apparently based on a on-premises server like BES, so I don't think the basic functionality of the corporate server changed (to allow remote configuration, apply IT policies, push apps, etc)
