thanks God....I wouldn't imagine to have a tablet or phone (iConboard) for work
1) that is not able to copy any file
2) and open it in any app
3) and can not install company's one purpose app

without these 3 points, please, tell me, where is productivity? :)

Not because I am not a fan of Apple, but I was pretty irritated with that report yesterday to spend our tax dollars on high end smart phones when Blackberry has been working securely for them for years. Hate me if you want. You as Amercians can spend your money on whatever phone you want, but when our tax dollars start going towards these expensive devices for reasons other than only being secure (seems a bit more pleasure or to be "cool" america) I am not ok with it. Just my opinion, let the thumbs rain down.

Makes sense as it takes how many updates for Apple to make their phone secure?
