At Oklahoma State University, we have seen trends towards Siemens,
PocketPC devices provided by Cingular, and Treos. We still have several
BlackBerry users (I am one).
We are trying to be flexible in our support model. We run Exchange as
our email services, so we have a BlackBerry server set up for this user
base and have ActiveSync enabled for the other devices.
We have recently upgraded to Exchange SP2 and are looking at the
additional mobile capabilities.

Subject: [HMC] Greetings HMC List
It's been a little while since we've had some activity on the list so I
thought I would send a note to check on new projects out there and to
few questions. I've also included a couple of articles from EDUCAUSE
the Chronicle of Higher Education that discuss mobile technology.
I'm also wondering what your experiences have been with the Treo 700
Windows Mobile in general. Are schools moving toward devices other than
Blackberry because of the recent legal issues?
Feel free to reply to the list and share your thoughts.
