    Was just thinking why doesn't blackberry launch its own cloud service baked into bb10 for consumers amidst all the madness with I cloud being hacked the Nsa snoops etc am sure it would attract more...given their security track record

    BBM is a "cloud" service. What do you mean email?

    I'm thinking they aren't big enough to pull it off. It'd be great, though. I'd pay for that, and a @blackberry.com email address (not carrier dependant).

    Dropbox and the others are going to be hurting with Microsoft, Google etc. Giving away Cloud storage.

    BlackBerry already integrates to Dropbox anyway. You can store encrypted files there. I am not sure what BlackBerry could do to improve on that.

    As mentioned they bought Newbay. And in early 10.0 beta builds to her was a built in cloud storage app for it. Then it disappeared in later builds and never made it to market.
    Then as also mentioned. They sold Newbay.

    Some files, yes. And bigger concern is all of the user names and passwords being leaked online. 7 million or something like that...

    As I understand, Dropbox is encrypted only while in transit to and from the cloud. It is not encrypted storage -- you'll have to encrypt your data before sending.

    I think I read that Microsoft's OneDrive is encrypted storage.

    I think I prefer BlackBerry's approach where they let the customer decide which cloud service to use. Dropbox, Box, Microsoft's OneDrive and Evernote already integrate as well with BB10 as their own solution would.

    This is ultimately better for the customer; introducing a proprietary service the way Apple did with iCloud is a lock-in, and I'm not crazy about those.

    That's what I meant. Dropbox will store whatever you want. Including encrypted files.
