BB supports Lotus seamlessly; the rest of it is policy. You will be surprised that if you test it, quite likely it would have worked - since Admin would be relying on users not knowing how to, rather than checks and measures. If 'some' were allowed OTA/OTI access, the channel was already there. Most companies do not allow 'forwarding' of mails by this access method. I would be surprised if your admin guys would have actually implemented user-level access prevention.
You saying there could be a way by which I could check my office mail without the company knowing? And same with the WLAN access?

lol very true, sometimes sysadmins are clueless. On one side they pry on you with all kinds of software, on the other hand smart ones get off with major breach!!

A new version of the N95's FW is out (v21.0.016). Pretty major revision. Adds support for Flashlite 3 inside the web browser.

Other highlights:

Quote:
  • Flash Lite 3 is included, so Flash video sites will work, including YouTube (just as on the N95 8GB v15 firmware from a couple of months ago)
  • The Web runtime is included, meaning that standalone widgets are now possible
  • Greater Bluetooth headset compatibility
  • Better handling of entering lots of text into web page dialogs
  • Speedier Gallery in every way
  • Faster Java runtime, so Java apps start faster

any idea what the release dates for the n96 are? Wouldn't they like to get the device out in the market sooner than there 3rd quarter promise?
I mean they have a gadget that has already been showcased at the MWC..wonder if its good strategy to hold till six months afterwards to release the phone.

I am interested to know if I should wait for the n96 over the n95 8 gb

There is a great review here:
Mobile-review.com Hands-on with Nokia N96
Decide if it's worth waiting for or go for the N95 8GB now?

Guys, is any one of you using the Sony Ericsson w660i? I've heard that it's a good cellphone and it's reviews on Mouthshut.com are excellent...however, it's camera lacks autofocus and a flash...do you think the lack of these two features is a big issue?
I would also like to know about the HTC P3400.

P.S.:Is it a good idea to purchase a cellphone from the Mobile store?

The N96 will feature Symbian S60 3rd edn Feature Pack II. That should be good reason enough
