Only to a degree. For example, the new Blackberry devices such as Bold etc can now use the additional functionality of editing email attachments and then sending on the edited attachment to another recipient. However, that requires the BES server to be at a similar level.

But I'm assuming it will do the normal wireless sync with Exchange email and calendar?  I guess I'm wondering more if using one in a corporate setting will require BES 4.x.  We have plans to upgrade to this but we're not there yet.

Yes. I had a few issues with the Bold initially but that was more our own learning curve rather than anything else. The basic functions such as email, calendar and contacts all worked OK (I have not used a Storm but the Bold was fairly recent.
