MYN Blackberry Outlook Exchange Solution

Here is a Blackberry App for creating your MYN Tasks List that will synchronize with your Outlook Exchange server. The App is called ToDoMatrix. It's a bit pricey, but you can download a free trial using Blackberry App World, and then config it per instructions in this article to see if you like it. While it's not as good an MYN solution as say the iPhone or Android solutions, it's a very powerful and mature task app that delivers a ton of features.

While the iPad 2 usually wins overall in all reviews, if you examine the feature list, it looks like they are about a wash. Of course, you may have preferences on the two operating systems. Anyway, here’s the comparison:,2817,2381322,00.asp

By the way, Android OS smartphone sales recently surpassed Apple iPhone sales. I truly think the same can happen in the tablet space. I have an iPad and a smartphone from both OS’s (iPhone and Android), and I like each for different reasons—I really think either OS will work for you.

And in case you have not been following my blogs, if you want to use my MYN system to manage tasks with any of these, I recommend preferred software for each...
