    Microsoft said Sunday that its long-awaited push e-mail capability for mobile devices is finally headed into the market.

    Although Microsoft is offering push e-mail abilities later than some mobile specialists, such as Research In Motion and Good Technology, the company says the numbers are still on its side. Although there are a billion mobile phones and 400 million Outlook e-mail users worldwide, only about 10 million people are getting their corporate e-mail delivered to their phones.

    Why would you want e-mail on your phone? There are only the following exceptions:
    • You actually get a lot of business e-mail, and knowing about it is critical to your business.
    • You don't care about replying.
    • You don't care about attachments (and don't tell me that you can open them; nothing of that form factor can read attachments in their proper, exact form)
    • You have a Treo or possibly a Pocket PC where you actually have a QVGA or higher screen to read them and occasionally a tiny QWERTY keyboard

    Dammit, cell phones should be used for making calls and that's it. They should specialize in that rather than branching into subpar cameras, (oh my God, blasphemously called) web browsers, MP3 players, text messengers (the most stupid concept on the planet, by the way; you have a freaking communication medium right there that's not priced by the character), etc.

    I have my little Verizon cell phone for mobile calls and my personal number, my iPod for music, my tablet for mobile computing, and my iQue for GPS navigation. It would be nice if they were one device, but that device would be so huge and not offer good quality across all its features that it would be useless. Also given that I listen to my iPod while driving (over the car sound, of course) and the iQue also while driving as navigation, combining the two devices would not result in good usability (have to change screens on the device, which would mean losing navigation momentarily while changing songs for example).

    E-mail on phones are a big advantage for people whose business relies on the Internet. But for those who does not need to regularly check their e-mails, I think its better to have a simple phone that does not have these e-mail services. After all, you can always access your email anywhere as long as there is a computer and an Internet connection.

    As for me.. It's gonna be a really hard time checking your mails thru your mobile phones.. I mean WAP is an advantage but most Mobile networks are charging alot from this.. Also, how aboutthe type of cellphone? I'm sure Microsoft will come up with a new smart phone with a very high resolution and yeah pretty expensive stuff.. that sucks

    It'll all change when flexible LCDs become main stream. Want a clue as to how well they'll integrate into everyday life? Watch Earth: Final Conflict, or Tek War.

    Think PocketPC / video phone / GPS / newspaper.
