BB was never a product for standard consumers, lets clarify that before I continue my tirade. Ask anyone that has managed thousands of phones for large enterprises, "which platform is the easiest to manage?" Android - maybe 20 offshoots of different versions and limitations, needs third party software to manage many devices. IOS - All iphones act the same, but, you need third party products to manage them and these systems are add-ons to the OS itself and can be defeated. BB - Many different styles, screen sizes and physical keyboards for those that still like them, easily managed via policy, easily bricked if lost or stolen and a perpetual VPN connection to the office. These features and many more are built into every BB right out of the box. Any of these devices are capable of these features now, but, dont forget what BB did for our phone generation. They will get bought for their infrastructure and patents and I simply hope that it is Google or Microsoft and not the children at FB. Enterprise level devices are still needed in an enterprise environment, simple as that. +Tierre Nash
BB is not meant to be an Android device, a dump truck is not a Mustang GT with a sound system and an in-dash DVD player. I have also never had a BB try to rape or otherwise suck on my anus :). +Manny Ameng
BB does not need an eco system or Apps other than what is pre-loaded. If you want a toy get an Iphone or Android device. +Kenneth Bishop
An android can simply not do all the things a BB can. Where is the policy management, remote destruction, auditing, device lock, hardware level device encryption, message encryption through a NOC (that even countries have issues hacking) and an always active private tunnel to your company network. Active sync and versions of SE-Android are coming along, but are not there yet. Personally, I love android and own several models, but I still use my two day battery life Blackberry for work. With all that said, yes, RIM messed up and they are doomed.
