Re: A few weeks back, I saw this device ..
Well, really, according to Chen himself, this phone is no more secure than a Sumsung device running Knox, which does a fair job (when it works), but is still less secure than iOS. It's can't replace a BB10 device in environments where the BB10 device, it's security chip, BES servers and Blackberry's NOKs provided to extra security (for some functions, as the Blackberry isn't encrypted end to end the way iOS is,and now, Android will be). So Chen has stated that they will give a customers e-mail and messages to any government that asks for it, using the supposed legal channels their government has. In some countries, that's particularly dangerous for users. If BB10, and the hardware goes away, as Chen now seems to be saying, why would anyone care about Blackberry anymore. They will have nothing special to offer.
