The competition is falling - Seeking Alpha article
I don't know if I am a bad person, but I just would like to see this year big news on security issues on Androids and everybody scare about being stolen and running for the Aristo as the iPhone is just not innovative enough. "just kidding", I really hope this does not happen
check this article, it talks about that
Research In Motion: The Competition Is Falling - Seeking Alpha
- 01-08-13, 11:15 AM #3Apple stock has been taking somewhat of a drubbing lately, down 25% from its all time highs.Apple is even slashing production orders for the iPhone5 as the demand they expected is just not there.The highly regarded Consumers Report just rated the iPhone5 as the worst performing smartphone out of all the major smartphone players! Not good news for Apple fans.

- 01-08-13, 11:59 AM #8Apple has reportedly slashed its orders for iPhones for the first quarter of next year. According to UBS and other sources, Apple cut its “build” orders from 35-40 million units to 25-30 million. This suggests that sales of the all-important iPhone may be far lower than Wall Street has been expecting.
So that bit at least may have some truth behind it, although I thought I saw some figures suggesting iPhone was quite some way ahead of Samsung in the US.

C'mon guys, isn't that obvious? iPhone is becoming a innovative less product, they built a future ready (not proof) device, a device that is ready by just adding enough specs to compete with the average market. They indeed have a product that will work perfectly with the new APPS. There are no apps out there that will require in the short term a big amount of RAM and CPU cores. So what is next? The iPhone's Software is prepare for small hardware changes, but it is not for Hardware additions. So NFC was not included, this is just the begining, I believe that industry will adopt new technologies for integration purposes and the iSolation that Apple is about to experiment will be the downfall of their products, because they won't add any new technologies, they will stuck with their own ecosystem. This is why they need a TV in the market right now...

I'm afraid RIM is going to have to win back the masses the old fashioned way, by putting out a product that *gasp* people want to actually use, and not have to rely on the tinfoil hats of some conspiracy theorists.
What are you talking about? were you expecting the steal of accounts in Sony Servers? You saw it coming? This is something that can be done on android and I have an Android Galaxy SIII for work and a BlackBerry Bold 9900 for personal use. I think I should switch them.
Now.. for the rick roll guy, this is for you, not for mike who is not following the conversation....
You say Android is not going to be news in security flaws matter because there are millions of activations daily and by this time we would already hear about millions of identity thief and stuff. You claim that timing and massive propagation make it unhackable.
I say that any system can be hacked, you did not hear about steal of sony accounts the first day they launched right?. I mean, it doesn't have anything to do with how many activations there are and how much time is been on the market...

Can anyone explain me in two words why would BB be much safer? BBM communication passes through Rim servers, right. It's not open source OS, so Rim controls it better and can dispatch the updates. Anything else? I'm not being ironical, I'm curious to find out more...because BBM and fully controlled platform don't convince me more than that (even if I appreciate).

I don't know how much this is ever likely to matter to most consumers; people have been showing for years that they are prepared to give up privacy and security for the sake of convenience, but it definitely matters to business.
I have my own BES Express at home, and in the course of troubleshooting an issue the other night I found myself poring over the IT policies, and they provide an impressive degree of control. If you run a BES you can fine-tune device security to a fair degree, even to the extent of permanently disabling the camera or removeable storage.

But as I said, if you want to hope that some big news story will happen in 2013 to drive more people into the arms of BB, then i'd suggest taking off the tinfoil, and coming back to reality.

My understanding is that if folks stick to the branded stores (iTunes, Play Store and BlackBerry World), and don't click silly links in emails, your chances of finding malware on any of these 3 is pretty small.
It is the folks who are trying to sell you something that keep posting these "malware is gonna getcha" stories.
I said in another post - I love that we brag in these posts about BlackBerry security on the one hand, and then when an app like WhatsApp is rumored not to be coming "oh I'll just sideload". I imagine folks understand then if they didn't do the .bar conversion themselves, on their own computer, that the are exposing themselves to the same chance of malware as someone who sideloads to Android or jailbreaks their iOS.
But that's not important right now it doesn't stick to the narrative.
And in the "analysis" on Seeking Alpha, #3 the "drive by breech" pertains to NFC vulnerability and BB are as vulnerable to this particular exploit as an Android phone as I understand it.
