Free version of BES now available for Notes

RIM's BlackBerry Enterprise Server Express edition now supports Domino servers in addition to Exchange

Research in Motion today released a free version of its BlackBerry Express Server (BES) for IBM Domino servers, which run Lotus Notes. The Express version allows an unlimited number of users but has a subset of the mobile management tool's policies: 75 out of the full version's more than 500 policies.

Last spring, RIM released a version of BES Express for Microsoft Exchange that supported 35 policies. The InfoWord Test Center judged that the limited set of policies was enough for most businesses' management needs.

The version of BES Express released today works with Microsoft Exchange, Windows Small Business Server, Lotus Domino, and Lotus Messaging Server. Companies can deploy both the free and paid servers, such as using the paid version for high-compliance-requirement users and the free version for users with access to less valuable data or those who use personal BlackBerries for just basic activities.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
