Samsung aiming at BlackBerry with platform for enterprise use to be unveiled at MWC?

SAFE initiative. SAFE stands for Samsung for Enterprise and deals with keeping its devices secure enough for enterprise use. Recent commercials showed how a make-believe software company with a BYOD policy found its supposedly secure software put on the internet because of an employee with a BlackBerry.
In its research note, Detwiler Fenton said that Samsung now believes that SAFE allows the Korean manufacturer to deliver Android with best in class security and is aiming right at Waterloo's heart. According to the brokerage firm, "Samsung must now believe it has enhanced SAFE to effectively take share from BBRY as we understand it has hired well north of 100 sales and sales support staff to serve the enterprise and small business markets."
If this turns out to be true, not only could it bring a quick end to BlackBerry's comeback, it could also put Samsung in a new position for it as the manufacturer for today's businessman. Samsung has been trying to push the Samsung GALAXY Note II as the perfect BYOD device with multi-windows allowing users to work and play at the same time.

too difficult to compete dude... especially with the upcoming key lime pie and HD+ resolution tabs and devices. im pretty sure mobiles with more than 1920x1080 displays would be released within this year! like DNA was released last year!

i dont think corporates will trust thier data with either samsung or android. if sammy is coming with android , it will be a laughing stock. android is known for selling thier own customers data . blackberry is known for their security and privacy policies.

So Samsung has no right to enter into other business lol...have you not seen the rumoured Sony phablet hmm I wonder why Sony are getting into the phablet section do you think it has something to do with the fact that the note series is doing very well....am a big fan of Sony but to keep on acting as if Sony have never copied is a joke...everyone copies everyone hell have you seen the new htc one if that's true that looks like a iPhone 5...seen the leaked ps4 controller the shape looks like the Xbox 360 controller...seen the optimus g pro looks like the note 2...everyone in this industry copies it'll be stupid not to take que from something that consumers like...reason everyone hates apple and samsung right now because they are at the top if and when they lose there spot who ever takes over will be the next hated thing... Don't know why some people find the reason to hate people or companies that do well...they doing well cause the customer likes them its as simple as that...consumers are fickle that when the next best thing comes out they will be over it but so far everything thats coming is just spec updates which the average consumers could care about its all about softwares which imo samusng are the best at in android...I admit I don't like the look of tw but software features like multi view,direct call,smart rotation etc etc is what makes Samsung stand out. For me Samsung are making the best all

wait a minute now sir, wasn't the Dell Streak the first "phablet" style phone? i don't think Samsung can claim to be authentic in anything they do except for maybe their televisions or screen-making b/c all of the their mobile equipment have been improved upon variations of technology that was already there (as most technology is, but people seem to interpret when Samsung does it as innovation which i completely don't get).

Never said they were 1st, but they took risk even though someone else failed and created a device that took advantage of a huge screen and now that Samsung have shown there is a market for extra large devices now every other OEM is jumping to the phablet wagon...I could care less who copies who, if they make a better device than I will buy it...everything is built on others work I just find it funny people act like "there" company has never copied.

The eye can hardly see any difference between 720p and 1080i, going any higher wouldn't give any benefits at all. Improving battery life should be a priority, not thinking of ways to drain it even faster.

stop crying all the time. they ARE improving the battery life. galaxy s2 and s3 pretty much have the same battery life even though s3 has a bigger display AND more resolution. the same goes for onex and dna/butterfly.
