And the lines between what is considered a business device and a personal device just got a little more blurry, because you will soon be able to use what is considered a consumer phone to access your corporate email on Sprint.
Up until now, you had to stick to what Sprint considered a business phone in order to take advantage of corporate email access. These phones would include devices like the BlackBerry line from Research in Motion. With this latest development, Sprint will be adding support for Microsoft Exchange and Lotus Domino accounts to its Sprint Mobile Email client.
The first consumer phone to take advantage of this newfound functionality will be the Samsung Instinct, but Sprint plans on extending this service to other high-end consumer handsets as well. Work email can be found through a tab in the Sprint Mobile Email portal.
