DROID vs Blackberry for use with Lotus Notes email and calendar?

I am upgrading from a regular cellphone to a smartphone and need to make sure I can access work email/calendar (which is in Lotus Notes).  I know this is possible with a Blackberry but what about a DROID?  Has anyone done this or know if it is possible?  Was at a Verizon Wireless store today and they could not give me an answer.  I like the DROID but it will not meet my needs if I can't get to my work stuff.  Help!

I don't think Android has any native support for full sync with Lotus Notes in a native app.  Obviously you can get your email via pop3 or imap, but syncing of calendars, contacts and such will require a 3rd party app.

 

Doing a quick Google of the task at hand showed up a few possible solutions for you.

I also checked http://androlib.com and did a search for Lotus, and came up with  "MyLink Advanced" which reports to:

"

MyLink Advanced provides full synchronization of all Lotus Notes emails (inbox, sent, outbox and drafts), contacts, calendar, tasks and notes with all Android phones via USB.
Download of the APK is FREE. PC Client is $8.25 from www.waveglobal.net.
Want to test the product first? Get the FREE trial version MyLink Access."

It looks like you should be able to do it, but it might cost you somwhere between $9 and $40 depending on what solution you might choose to implement.

There are also some discussion forums with your same topic.  Too many for me to wade through, but a partial answer to your question is yes, it should be possible.
