Has Anyone Seen This BlackBerry Icon Or Screen Before?

Has Anyone Seen This BlackBerry Icon Or Screen Before?

I'm not exactly sure what that icon in the picture is or what screen it took me to is. What I mean by that is of course, aside from the obvious. Clearly it's some sort of application updater which alerts you of out of date applications and advises you to upgrade. But, I've never seen it before and well, it had no reason to show up when it did. So, I figured I would ask you all as well. The...

What is a Blackberry Enterprise Server? Do I need one?

What is a Blackberry Enterprise Server?  Do I need one?

Before we answer the second question, do I need one; let's look at what is a BES and how it works. First the BES is software; Research in Motion does not sell server boxes. In fact many businesses are installing the BES in a virtual server in order to reduce the number of physical server boxes.
