Best work PDA?

My company is currently trialing new work PDA's and phones for the company....

What do other people use at their places? Cant get blackberries, as apparently they dont work with our systems (synchronisations, etc).

Currently trialling the iPhone and HTC HD2 and Touch.

Any recommendations??

Iphone would be my personal choice however the nokia E71 is a great work phone/pda,
I currently have a 3gs that recieves my work email and allows me to connect to pc's in the workplace with various rdp/vnc solutions as well as vpn connectivity.
I have had htc devices and my personal experience with them wasnt that great but they may have moved on alot since then.

Just my 2 peneth :)

dont think the iphone trial is going that well purely because of the battery life!!

We have iPhones here, but I use a blackberry too. I wonder what system doesn't work with Blackberrys, most mainstream and less mainstream packages do, sometimes with modification.

Do you know what software your Outlook uses? If it's something strange it might be why.

iPhone is not designed for business, the HD2 would be the choice especially for company use due to the larger screen size.
iPhone is more of a toy / status symbol that a real work horse, biggest failing is it can not multitask and is not designed for it.

We use a citrix environment if that helps?? no idea about software...sorry!

Also company wise, Blackberrys require you to use their severs for email that are then linked to your works own Outlook servers.
This means you are paying an extra charge for email that a Windows Mobile device can do out of the box.
Depending on the size of your company you could save thousands of popunds a year.

It being designed and it being well suited is a different matter though.

Not always true - it depends on your system.

If you use a blackberry then you will pay for the use of their server ontop of your own.
The only time it does not matter is if you do not use Exchange (which most companies do use).
