re: BlackBerry 10: Not All The Right Moves
The problem now with BB is that they are too little, too late. Americans love a winner. BB is not even an "also ran." What person is going to want to pull out the BB and be the butt of jokes? The vast majority of people who will buy in to BB already have an ancient device they've held on to. At least BB may stem the bleeding.

Good luck BB. If you can steal some thunder from Microsoft, you'll be lucky!

re: BlackBerry 10: Not All The Right Moves
I'm not sure BB10 and its associated hardware will make a huge impact with consumers. Consumers will not be hooked by yet another product similar to iOS and Android, or even Windows Phone 8, especially given iOS's and Android's vastly larger and superior app selections. But IT departments will have plenty of reasons to implement BB10 into their corporate environments.

When I joined the organization I'm currently working for 3 years ago, I loathed being given a Blackberry device and I was thrilled when they allowed employees to BYOD so that I could use my iPhone instead. However, had I been given one of these new BB10 devices, I can say I definitely would have not been disappointed and would have been perfectly content to be required to use it.

By the way, great article and very well-written.

Nobody cares. Not even MSFT+Blackberry could become relevant let alone BB by itself. Snore.

re: BlackBerry 10: Not All The Right Moves
It seems that where the Blackberry shines is the ability to keep a separate enterprise/personal space. This has to be something both the Company and the holder of these phones will like. If the device is presumed compromised/lost and wiped but later found at least the userG«÷s personal stuff will remain intact. This scenario is played out much too often where a G«£bring your own deviceG«• is connected to the companyG«÷s provided ActiveSync is presumed lost but later found. These new phones could gain traction as a company provided device because of the range of carries, ease of management and lowered support costs. As anyone know the support levels rise in a BYOD company as the amount of different devices increase.

re: BlackBerry 10: Not All The Right Moves
Right now, that's the story to watch. Which will become the third player in the smartphone platform race: RIM or Microsoft?

They changed company name to BlackBerry at launch. WTF is RIM ?

".. Apps. BlackBerry listed a huge number of apps that will be available at launch, many of which are today's most popular iOS and Android apps. It is launching with some 70,000 altogether. Despite the strong starting list, there are major omissions, such as Netflix, Instagram, SnapChat and so on..."

Can't really blame BlackBerry for that, can you? They can't force developers to develop for them.
