I still use a BlackBerry for two reasons: When I got my first (of three) it was enterprise-ready out of the box -- and I really needed to access my company's Exchange servers. Also, Verizon didn't have anything else when I first signed up years ago. I'm on the BlackBerry bandwagon until April 16 when my Verizon contract expires.
After that I'll likely move to an iPhone, which now has little problem syncing with Exchange.
To maintain whatever enterprise edge it has, RIM (which makes the BlackBerry) will integrate its phones with Office 365. This all sounds pretty cool. Just like the integration with on-premise Exchange, BlackBerry devices can sync with Exchange mail, calendar and contacts.
The coolest part is the protection of your data. Because it is in the cloud, it should be secured by your provider. And if you lose your phone, you can remote wipe it clean. Sweet. You can also remotely reset the password.
