Sadly it was never designed to be a solution, it was designed to look like a solution, hence the lack of features required for long term use.
Cutting edge custom hardware is expensive
Yes. See as an example the original Nintendo DS with a custom ARM CPU that was some way back from the cutting edge.
If you use Office, you'll get the best service with an Exchange server
True, MS Outlook is very flaky at times doing normal email unless the server is in the same building. I've had to get users onto a VPN simply because MS Outlook does SSL so badly. Phones with 1/10 the CPU on congested networks perform better picking up mail than a fast machine with MS Outlook.
Mimecast, for example, allows automatic off-site archiving of all email

Yugioh: Duel Monsters Online Exchange
Obviously so much more of a professional financial services company than MTGOX (Magic The Gathering Online eXchange)

Cutting edge hardware is expensive so they have always gone for the cheaper option than Sony, MS etc. The downside is something not so quick, the upside is no blue rings of death or other cutting edge flakiness.
The herd instinct among economists makes sheep look like independent thinkers.
