BB should promote BB MARKET, I've worked for most known carriers At&t, Claro, T-mobile, Sprint, etc. and most cust are looking for apps they can play with. I would create a contract with EA, GameLoft and other game company and do comercials maybe create a new and cheaper line of BB for carriers with $50.00 ratplans. at least while they steer things up. And Let people know that we are here, Fresh and we have wath they have. ;)

There is just too rubbish apps out there in the market place I think it is overplayed by a long shot. If you want to spend all all life farting around trying to find a new app that is practical and useful, with out the malware, advertising, resource hog and energy draining spyware, they dont exist with Android. Hell just give the Android vendor and Google your bank account number and be done with it.

Nothing is NSA proof. As long as it uses 0s and 1s it can be broken.

you must render to BlackBerry what belongs to Blackberry.
Interresting!
The U.S. DoD has chosen among all smartphones approved by DISA, the best ...
BlackBerry!
This is revealing.
The DoD has closed the door to foreign intelligence services, closing by this opportunity as well, the door to the NSA.
It seems, according to all evidences, that the DoD no longer trust Apple, Samsung Knox or the others, unless they are rule by BES 10.
I must say, after the Snowden case, we discovered,they were all Spyphones ..
Just as the German Government, DoD, the U.S. Department of Defense could not do otherwise.

Have you ever use any new BlackBerry 10 devices?
The Z30 is just so fun and I am serious.
It's clean.
It's NSAPROOF...
This is no spyphone.
There are no geek trap to catch blind users, like flies.
It is base on QNX RTOS.
It use micro kernel so it can deal, with just a little cpu, up to a thousand threads simultaneously.
It has nothing to do with the past...
You can install anything, any apps, native or else, it just work
IT SO POWERFUL
