Nice features... altough i have some doubts:

- The threading mail is only for (business) outlook exchange or for (consumer) all mail, like gmail, yahoo and hotmail?

- Only hidden corporate wi-fi, or all hidden wi-fi?

- Complex (alpha-numeric) password support is the lock screen password?

@tiago:

1) threaded email is for all accounts

2) what's the difference?

3) yes

HTH,

FrankPr

Cool, thanks a lot FrankPr! 1) makes sense, also don't see differences in 2) and 3) also makes sense since 4 digits passwords are - well - so consumer-like! ;-) Even my SIM card PIN has 5 digits! ;-)
