I usually do not post about whitepapers but this one really made me laugh. Advaiya Inc, which seems to be a Microsoft partner, has released a whitepaper comparing the Microsoft Mobile Solution to the RIM BlackBerry solution. Guess who wins?
Turns out that according to Advaiya Microsoft offers a “richer” experience and in their opinion “Research In Motion BlackBerry technology is good, but the future is with the Microsoft mobile solution.” Or even better:
Although the Research In Motion solution has been the choice of the past, the Microsoft solution is the choice of the future. Only the Microsoft solution has the flexibility, extensibility, and scalability to meet the ever-changing mobile computing needs of businesses in the future.
They do have quite a few points in their feature comparison but the whole whitepaper is stacked against RIM. I won’t even go into the details refuting most of their “strong” arguments but if you want a quick laugh (or maybe a cry if you prefer Windows Mobile) I recommend checking out the whitepaper at this link on ZDNet. Some of it is just laughable like saying that the BlackBerry solution only partially supports encrypting your device memory. You need to be registered to view the document but that is why you have www.bugmenot.com.
Maybe RIM needs to issue a refuting whitepaper?
