    Has anyone been able to port the corporate calendar from the Droid to the Nexus One? I still can't get why it is not on the Nexus One considering that Google wants this phone to be used by business people...

    No exchange calendar syncing. Try using Google calender sync solution. That's what I did. Or you can purchase Touchdown.

    Actually, Google did NOT want this phone to be used for business people. Google worked together with Motorola and VZW to make the DROID accessible for business people. However, the N1 was never envisaged to be an enterprise phone. This is why in a recent WSJ interview, Andy Rubin talked about potentially bringing an "enterprise version" of the N1. When asked what that phone might look like, he said, "It might have a physical keyboard on the front [like a Blackberry]; it might have different battery characteristics; it might be a world phone..." So, if you want Exchange support, pick up a DROID or wait for the Enterprise version of the Google Phone.

    Touchdown is even better than the Droid Exchange version.

    Yeah, but you have to pay for touchdown. Native support isn't great, but it's free and it works for what I need it for. And at least it's available on the DROID instead of being non-existent. It's also nice to have a choice.

    The nexus one has native support for MS Exchange mail - Sweet!

    But the calendar is non-existent. I know motorola's exchange contact application checks the hardware, and only runs on Droid, I assume the calendar is similar.

    Also I am going to attempt to edit my config files tonight to test the WPA2-Enterprise support that is not yet configurable through the UI.

    If that works I will have 2 out of 3
    - wifi access @ work
    - company emails
    - company calendar

    I don't know if I agree with that. You don't develop such an expensive phone if your only market is, for a lack of better terminology, tech hungry geeks -- surely they expected business professionals to also pick up the device.

    I consider having access to Exchange based e-mail, contacts, and calendar BASIC functionality of any smartphone. Something that should have been considered before they decided to brand it as a SUPERphone (which I interpret to be a convergence of existing smartphone functionality).

    My thought here is that Google simply dropped the ball.

    That simply isn't true. The N1 DOES support exchange - it's just a terrible implementation of it and it lacks a native Corporate Calendar app. Andy Rubin made passing comments regarding new HARDWARE and didn't actively set forth their strategy for the future of the Nexus product line.

    The N1 is fully capable of supporting anything Google chooses to allow it to support and it makes no sense for them to say "hey Mr. businessman with all your money and purchasing power - please don't buy our brand spankin' new Nexus One - this phone isn't for you." The issues with exchange are 100% software related and I'm confident that either Google or third party developers will come up with some great Exchange solutions for the Nexus One. Yes these features should have been native, but they aren't and now we have to wait...
