I take serious issue with the BB flawless email mantra. BB was incredible at email when everyone was terrible at it, but unless things have changed, there's still a ton of annoying crap in using BB's email application on a day to day basis. I want to murder my work BB everytime i have to hit that stupid "more" button to read more content in a work email. I'm incredibly frustrated every time i need to dial into a teleconference as there is no simple way to pop between the phone and email applications so that I can put in the stupid conference passcode. Figuring out how to forward a meeting invite requires a doctorate. It's hardly flawless, it's just....familiar.
At the end of the day, the BB does email simply and it has the flashing red light, which in some ways may be enough. I can understand someone preferring a blackberry to some of the other options, but I do keep reading here and elsewhere that the BB does email so much better than everyone else, and i'm just not seeing that.
1) What model Blackberry do you have? There are easy ways to cut and paste, and to switch between apps. Typically pushing and holding the Blackberry button does the trick.
2) Ask your company if they can increase the default size of your work email messages (the amount before the more button kicks in) -- they have the power to increase it...
3) I monitor 5 email accounts constantly - one standard Exchange work email account, 2 Gmail accounts, a Yahoo account, and a "standard" sendmail server using IMAP. My Blackberry not only keeps each account up to date - it puts them in nice, separate folders. For me, no other solution comes close to Blackberry, but everyone's needs are different.
I have also been running a Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet - for purposes that have nothing to do with email - but have used it to see if I could/should move off of Blackberry.
General Android findings from my perspective:
1) I have found Gmail to be incredibly awesome (and reliable) on Android Honeycomb, including multiple Gmail accounts. For Gmail-only users, Android is clearly the choice over Blackberry.
2) For my exchange account, the support is good, but is inferior to the Blackberry. ActiveSync pulls in my Exchange email, but it is not as fast, or as reliable as my Blackberry. Messages appear on my Blackberry before they appear on my Tab. In fact, I have to hit the "more" button more often on my Tab than on my Blackberry.
3)IMAP support is fine on Android, but I would prefer having the messages from my sendmail in a completely separate folder.
Also, I just bought an HP TouchPad for home. If you want all your email messages from all your accounts combined into a single view, WebOS (based on my limited testing) is superb.
