BlackBerry CEO says Samsung will never have "top-notch" security

0. phoneArena 23 Mar 2013, 19:05 posted on

BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins is not afraid to take shots at the competition, and given the state that BlackBerry is in, that's probably not a bad thing. Heins' latest target is Samsung, which is to be expected since Samsung's latest software update will be aiming directly at BlackBerry's core business: enterprise. But, Mr. Heins says that Samsung will never be able to offer "top-notch" security...

And blackberry will never regain the popular they once had. Although once a great empire of qwerty keyboard smartphones, is now a sorry piece o crap 4.2 inch phone that wouldve been relevant if it came out in 2011 :)

This is a rather fanboyish article Michael H. Mac is more secure than a Windows.

The only mistake that Nokia did is that they did not adopt Android. Otherwise, it is a flawless company producing the best hardware ever. It has more than 16000 patents.

Nokia means another phone's world and another story.
No one can sued them or talk badly about them

P.S.
Talking about BlackBerry and security, article on PhoneArena.com "BlackBerry 10 rejected by UK government - not secure enough": http://goo.gl/7hJ2u

That article was published on many different web sites and has been removed because it is false (the only site that has not removed it is phonearena.com). The UK government says it takes them 7 months to pass or fail. They have not even begun to test it yet. (this is directly from them) LOL...

No idea who Pikapowerize is, so I can't say why he was banned. Sorry.

I do run Ubuntu as my primary OS on my laptop, Chromebook secondary, and Windows 8 as a backup if all else fails.

Correct you are. I've got a Nexus 4 and Nexus 7. Plus there's an HTC Radar sitting around the house, but I really do need to get rid of that. And, my wife has an iPad, so I sometimes use that, just to see how things are going with iOS.

This kind of trash talk from the CEO of BB/RIM is the clearest indication yet of how desperate the situation is at BB/RIM. The GS III internal memory plus removable memory card can be encrypted to AES256, which is the gold standard for data security. Communication from the handset to the rest of the world is a function that is out of the handset manufacturer control. All of the more secure protocols are supported by both GS III and IV, so this is just further proof of how desperate things are at BB/RIM.

If Heins wants to pursue a career track in politics, he should not waste any time. His future at RIM/BB isn't looking too rosy. He certainly has the fundamental skills (trash talking) down quite well.

The perfect phone would be an iPhone with Blackberry Messenger with the battery life and resistance of a Nokia 1100

In my opinion on this site there is about the same number of Andriod and iOS fans, but there are far less Window 8 and BlackBerry fans.
