    Interesting Read.. Seems like their could be a lot of potential for Blackberry to get some customers back and pick up a lot more if they try BES10

    This article is what I have been saying all along. The handsets currently out there are no match for BlackBerry, the move by Heinz to take BlackBerry in the other direction was a major mistake.

    After reading this article I really feel like saying to all the BYOD evangelists: I told you so but then folks may think I'm having fun at the expense of their ignorance.

    It's not a matter of I told you so, it's exactly what it is, we were looking at alternatives when BlackBerry was having the meltdown, there was none on the market that could have compared for corporate use on many levels. Its a fact and trying to taint it isn't going to change the facts.

    Now how do you BYOD in a corporate environment when your device security is as leaky as a sieve: http://www.zdnet.com/forensic-scient...ce-7000031795/

    What this really makes me wonder is how come no other company that has much more resources (such as Apple and Samsung) and yet they have not been able to match what BlackBerry can do in security. I have to admit I do not know all the in's and out's of what BlackBerry does to be so amazingly secure, but whatever they are doing, why can't Apple spend their resources (which they seem to have endless amounts of!) and they also have the corporate users who switched to iPhone in the past couple years. Why have they not put the money in to develop more secure software...or do what BlackBerry has an create an Apple Enterprise Server? Not saying I want them to! I am very happy they haven't as it is allowing BlackBerry to re-enter the market with their bread and butter just like they did when they first came onto the scene!

    Just curious if anyone knows, why (for this sake) has Apple not tried to create their own secure network outside of their consumer product? I know they have partnered with IBM, but still not the same as BlackBerry and their security. Samsung had their Knox but that tanked...As much bad new that has surrounded BlackBerry, they really are untouched in this section of the industry and I am shocked and so excited that no one seems to be able to compete!

    Apples idea of secure is restrict user interaction at the interface level (which is why jailbreak is possible). Android's idea is open it up so everyone can check it and find any holes, hopefully contributing to their mitigation.

    BlackBerry's approach is to build on top of security. It's slower, since it means making sure each new feature doesn't compromise the secure environment... but much more controlled and supposedly accountable.

    Just a different approach,.. unfortunately it is slow and if you don't care for its merits,.. all you will see is that it is slow.

    To add to your questions. Why Samsung, Apple, Window, Google or even IBM did not snatch up BlackBerry while it was on fire sale for a little over $5 billions last year?

    Well, IBM was poking around. Seems a lot of people forget that. Not implying you did, just saying - IBM informally inquired about possible acquisition of enterprise services unit of RIM | CrackBerry.com

    "suction cup"... nice

    Many current BES customers have been holding off pulling the trigger on an upgrade, choosing to wait things out and see if BlackBerry gets their collective stuff together. And fortunately (at least for BB), the competition hasn't been exactly compelling.

    Now that BlackBerry at least appears to be turning the corner, I'm sure many CIOs are feeling comfortable with BES10/12 migrations.

    I think you're right about the Classic being a big device for corporate; it will be rolling out about the time BES12 comes out and will make the offering all the more compelling.

    The reason why is they would have to start from scratch having a large user base would mean having all those people upgrade to a brand new OS as we see with xp having a large user base is not always a good thing. Just ask the android crowd whose devices are obsolete because they aren't compatible with the new version of android. Its actually a plus in many ways for blackberry because upgrades to the is don't effect billions just millions. They can't add o security its all built into the OS. Like trying to fix a leaky dam your finger will only hold the water for so long.

    Put me at the front of the line please.

    My S4 is okay but it just isn't cutting it for me nor for most of my colleagues.

    When I ask my iOS totting colleagues how they like their iP5 they invariably start talking about cool games, music, etc. When I asked them how they like it for work (what the company actually bought it for), there's a litany of complaints. Ironically, one if the main complaints being you have to buy apps to get the phone to do a lot of the tasks BlackBerry does natively.

    IBM was "rumored" to be poking around. So said your own writer from your link:

    "Today's rumor is regarding the enterprise services division of RIM and IBM, who has supposedly "made an informal approach about possibly acquiring the division". One of the persons familiar with the matter has stated that no talks are currently underway regarding any such sale, and spokespersons for both IBM and RIM refused to comment on the rumor.

    The article is pretty good, albeit from a guy who hates BYOD.
