Nokia announced that it will offer its own enterprise push email solution for 20 to 30 percent less than the cost of RIM's software and with unlimited distribution rights. The company believes that the high price of entry is the biggest obstacle to mobile email deployments.

Nokia has conceded that it is still working on compression issues, while RIM's software is known for compression that is designed to work over limited GPRS networks.
