BlackBerry still beats the competition on security

BlackBerry has not been having the best time recently. RIM has been taking hits from every side, and BlackBerry has been losing support, but it does still have one thing to be proud of: according to research, the platform is still by far the most secure mobile OS around...

"Whereas, on Android, the standard of having users approve permissions for each app on install is "theoretically more secure", but runs into trouble by putting trust in the user to make the right decision rather than the system. "
Android system is as secure as a condom lol the security is there but its the responsibility of the user to use as indicated :) otherwise.. VIRUS!

I would like to see blackberry to rise again. When there are more options out there, the only winners are the consumers :)

Agreed, the Playbook is probably the best $200 tablet out there, but yet everyone overlooks it.
Really, the only think bad about it is:
Small power button, BB OS (which isn't thatttt bad)
But it beats the Nook and the Fire by a huge margin:
Nicer, faster performance.
Has awesome cameras (for a tablet)
and much more.

I do kind of like the Playbook. It is true multi tasking. It looks sweet!!

true multi tasking and a bad battery life, fail.

The problem with the Playbook is that it was released before it was done. I think most sales folks know that and didn't want to push it because it would be brought back with the lack of features.

That's because it's market has only 24 apps.

I too would love to see bb kicking as the end benefit is for the customer. But you want me to contribute into that by buying one?, no way. I'll stick with android.

I they could get a nice new handset out there - like those pics of the London prototype. I am sure they would really widen their appeal.

Except BB fails on security as far as DoD is concerned because every email or tweet goes through the BB corporate servers. DING, big fail.....

Thats the whole point of a BES server... Either get a new job or get a personal device for tweeting about your boss.
