If you’re one of the six or seven people who actually purchased a PlayBook to go with your BlackBerry, here’s why you can’t get email on it natively:
According to this director, the BlackBerry Email System is completely incapable of allowing two devices to access the same account. This worked just fine when people just carried a BlackBerry in their pocket and updated it occasionally with a new device, but now that people are carrying around tablets, the BES just cant cope.
And here I thought RIM had just made a stupid decision recently, to try and trap PlayBook users into keeping their BlackBerrys. Instead, they made a stupid decision a long time ago, to lock users into just one device.
I’m actually kind of stunned.
