Free version of BES now available for Notes

RIM's BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express edition now supports Domino servers in addition to Exchange

Research in Motion today released a free version of its BlackBerry Express Server (BES) for IBM Domino servers, which run Lotus Notes. The Express version allows an unlimited number of users but has a subset of the mobile management tool's policies: 75 out of the full version's more than 500 policies.

Last spring, RIM released a version of BES Express for Microsoft Exchange that supported 35 policies. The InfoWord Test Center judged that the limited set of policies was enough for most businesses' management needs.

The version of BES Express released today works with Microsoft Exchange, Windows Small Business Server, Lotus Domino, and Lotus Messaging Server. Companies can deploy both the free and paid servers, such as using the paid version for high-compliance-requirement users and the free version for users with access to less valuable data or those who use personal BlackBerries for just basic activities.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
