I am doing a presentation about mobile phones and the funtionality of them. I am going to talk about the benifits and features and why someone would need one for business. I am a PC consultant and I am doing this presentation with a MAC consultant. He is going to talk about Iphone and all the apps. I am going to talk about ......... I am blown away with the apps for iphone.
Anyone have some good apps you recommend I talk about to counter weigh the iphone. I had a BB and now a Windows mobile, but really don't use it for any special apps. I just do calendar, contacts, and email. I know the biggest difference is Iphone can't work with exchange yet (calendar, contacts, and email).

Thanks!

I think one of the biggest advantages with Windows Mobile Phones is the ability to sync with Exchange Server.

Well if this is a business presentation, stick with business apps, where iphone is very weak, yeah it has an app that someone with too much time on their hands created that could pick your nose for you, but what is that really going to do for a business to generate sales, make people more productive and generate cashflow.  Check out this for a good place to start.

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Ask the Experts
or else you can just take up simple things like

1. Copy paste of the content
2. SMS forward
3. Windows mobiles come in all sort of shapes/configuration..that does make this operating system for mobile really dyanamic..In other words, you can have a cheaper Win mobile with adequate configuration for a kid or you can have a fully loaded windows mobile with different hardware configuration to suit business needs.
4. Exchange Sync as said above..

I think you cant argue more than this against iPhone .:-)

Hope it helps!

Actually, while I do prefer BlackBerry and Windows Mobile devices, the iPhone 2.0 software does support Exchange ActiveSync.  See http://www.apple.com/iphone/enterprise/.
A key advantage to BlackBerry used with BlackBerry Enterprise Server is the ability to connect to an Intranet over the BlackBerry Browser.

Also, BlackBerry Messenger allows users to send and receive an unlimited number of messages worldwide for free.

And best of all, with BlackBerry or Windows Mobile devices you're not limited to AT&T.
BlackBerry is more secure than iPhone due to built in firewall protection, when it comes to message handling and contact management, BlackBerry leads the field hands-down due to it's simple but proven push technology. Centralized management with BES lets you keep track of all phones in your organization, heck they even sell phones with no camera to help you stick to corporate policy (and you can disable cameras with permissions settings as well). Here is a great APP that works with BlackBerry and even Windows Mobile (not to the extent that it does with BlackBerry), that allows you to take multiple contact sources, and push them out to mobile phones on a schedule that can keep thousands of people in-sync with the same contacts and even PIN information for blackberry users:
