    I really know nothing about rooting or jailbreking phones and tablets but I've heard that when a device can be rooted it is not as secure as a non-rootable device.

    Is my above statement true?

    With RIM's core customers being enterprise, could it be conceivable for them to decide to delay launch of the new os until after they close the holes that are being used to gain root access?

    Just a thought that I had while I was reading the CB blogs this morning.

    I had exactly the same thought. I'm inclined to think that it will delay BB10. It has been a selling point that BB devices are unhackable. They can't afford to give up any selling points, so my guess is they'll try very, very hard to fix this vulnerability before releasing any BB10 phones. And that assumes that there is a fix, when there may not be. So I'd say that the odds favor a delay.
