    Considering g Google in the next major update will be following BlackBerry's personal & work space security partitioning model he's bizouncing! Google needs help without licensing from a juggernaut client which it makes its coffers full from! Samsung will be too controlling licensing knox to Google.

    ? BlackBerry Z30 ? If it Don't Make Dollars, It don't Make Sense ?
    Samsung didn't license Knox to Google, they donated it, so your whole premise is based on something that is untrue.

    Samsung donated the Knox components to Google to proliferate it faster and benefit themselves by helping Android as a whole move forward in enterprise readiness. They can still enhance Knox further in their own devices, but the basics will exist in all Android 'L' handsets which will make it a lot more viable for Knox to be adopted by enterprises.

    Additionally, KNOX isn't *just* about Enterprise services. It adds a number of OS-level security enhancements to Android as well, much to the disdain of power users everywhere.

    Samsung realizes that helping Android displace more Blackberries helps them since they are perhaps the most prolific Android smartphone brand in developed markets, so any market share Android takes from BB and iOS in that domain will almost assuredly benefit them more than other Android OEMs (whose devices will be compatible, but Samsung's will still be endowed with capabilities beyond the basics that will give their devices a leg up there).

    I like how people say these people were part of a toxic subculture at Blackberry, when they leave.

    If he would have held a keynote speech introducing the Passport, people probably would have commented on how amazing he was.

    Samsung is not in a position where they would be looking for the scraps of other companies. They can afford much better and have actually been improving their stuff when it comes to Enterprise positioning.

    Why he left is anyone's guess and short of a reliable leak no one will ever know because there is likely an agreement not to discuss it, anyways.

    But this underhanded borderline-assassination of characters because they left Blackberry for a competitor is a bit... ridiculous.

    Can BB even afford to pay the kinds of pay checks some of these people have been making, given they are making a lot less money than they were years ago? They've already laid off a ton of "small guys." Maybe the bigger fish are getting pressured due to their high salaries these days.

    Or maybe they do not like where Chen is going, regardless of what kind of savior he seems to be at Crackberry.com

    Samsung has a lot more opportunities for them to work with less restrictions, throw some things up against the wall, without huge risk to the company.

    Good point.

    LOL If JC left tomorrow, folks would say he was a major detriment to the company too.

    Just like Chen left another organization, things change. I expect others will leave on good terms. Chen has a plan and a vision. I expect he will encourage some to reconsider if they really want stay with BlackBerry. Chen knew before to took over who he needed to bring over and who needed to go in order to achieve mission success.

    It's a normal leaders/managers plan.

    Yup. Many people here on CB seem to look through BB Glass. Similar to Google Glass except that BB Glass makes everything that BlackBerry does look positive.
