Coming over from a Blackberry - need some quick answers
I have been on a Blackberry since they came out, but I played with a Droid X and think I want to give it a shot, but need to figure a few things out.
With email - does it have to go throught a gmail account? I need to be able to sync from Microsoft Outlook. Our server runs SB 2008 and we run BES. Is there a similar program from Android? Our contacts are in a public folder on the server - can that be synced?
I also need to be able to read and edit Word, Excel and PowerPoint - does the phone come with apps that do this, or do you have to buy them? Any one better than another.
Last one - it looks like texts come into a different folder than email. Is there a way to combine them into one?

Droid X comes with a unified inbox or "universal Inbox" as it's called by the phone, it's the first option in the messaging app by default when you first get your phone. You can link a hotmail, ect account but I belive you do have to have a gmail account to set up your phone.
I recently switched from a BB Storm to the Droid X so i've been sifting through the same questions, I can't speak for any other Droid because this is the only one i've gotten any extensive time with. But the only problem I'd see you running into is uploading your business contacts from the server, but I'd imagine there is a way to do it, if nothing else, download them with your BB and just transfer them or use VZW backup assistant (I'm assuming your on verizon if your not in the US, I'm sure there is another similar process)
