Impacts and Recommendations

  • BlackBerry's BB10 device presents a modernized new platform based on touch technology not only to its dedicated development community but to lure new application developers
  • Market conditions will make it extremely difficult for BlackBerry to rise above iOS, Android and Windows 8 platforms. Success in the consumer market is necessary to ensure long-term viability in business markets
  • BlackBerry has not opened management API support to popular MDM tools. This will limit the appeal of BB10 devices for those enterprises that manage smartphones through cross-platform MDM tools
