Windows Phone is the better enterprise solution. Clearly don't get a BB.

Only other rub with the Androids is that their EAS support is all over the place. For that reason alone I'd never recommend one.

The 4G Droid Razr MAX seems to be the newest handset on that list, I might be wrong but I don't follow VZWs offerings. And ignore Dashel, these handsets have obviously been approved by his employer to work with their systems and security requirements, so it boils down to finding the best handset in the list of many horrible devices

What? My Android works perfectly with my Exchange ActiveSync. And even that means nothing. Windows Mobile 6.5 has the best support for Exchange ActiveSync there is, does that mean WM6.5 is the best solution here? Absolutely not.

I'd consider a Droid Razr Maxx. The extra battery life is a HUGE help, with heavy use the others probably won't last you a full day.

Unlike iOS and WP, proper EAS support on Android is a crap shoot (if not a blatant lie). Your anecdotal evidence doesn't change this (research why Motorola was giving away free licenses of Touchdown for example). WinMo? Please.

So I was right as far as going with the DROID max? He does have exchanger server for mail on his phone and doesn't use apps much. I would of told him the lumia one because I have been eager to try it but didn't want him to hate it. So from the list droid max?

Thanks
