French frozen food giant switches to BlackBerry 10 and BES
In addition, Picard is also going to employ BES10, BlackBerry's MDM system that will allow the company to manage its fleet of BlackBerry handsets. In a statement, Picard made it clear that it selected BlackBerry 10 because of its secure handsets and operating system. The French firm also picked BlackBerry 10 because of the platform's user experience.
It is unknown how many handsets Picard will be purchasing, but this is another sign that BlackBerry is on the cusp of a major turnaround. As we pointed out on Tuesday, data from analytic firm comScore showed that BlackBerry's market share of the U.S. smartphone market was flat for the three months ended in August, compared with the quarter ended in May. This comes after a number of monthly comScore reports showed declining market share for BlackBerry in the states.
