Before I purchased this thing a week ago, I read story after story about Microsoft licensing out ActiveSync to Apple, which would (probably) lead to this great phone/ipod being able to replace Blackberrys out there (using OMA or OWA and *not* IMAP), inlcuding my Pearl

All those articles i read are from days before launch and say over and over how "official announcement soon", but i haven't seen anything about it... has anyone else?

Example of a story i am yappin' about:

And I have seen programs like Syncronia that is supposed to get around lack of Outlook Mobile Access support, but I would not be able to convince my employer to spend that few grand on it

I had seen the same stories and got kinda excited, but then heard nothing. have you tried OWA access to access you mail? I know it is not the same thing, but at least it is something.

I got lucky and the day the iPhone came out, i changed jobs and now no longer need access to exchange email 24/7. Woo Hoo for me.
