The thing with BB is that all the devices are at the same level of security. If Samsung makes a new 'safe' plateform, wont the normal consumers of samsung feel a bit insecure? (even though android is quite safe)

Quite safe? Very bold statement considering all the reports we get about malware in Android, also originating from the Play Store. Windows Phone and iOS are quite safe, BB10 is very safe. Android is not. Any attempt to improve safety on Android should be encouraged.

i've used both ios and android. in neither i had any problem regarding security. maybe others are more safe than android but its your fault if you download apps without reading reviews and then get caught up in things like malware or anything else. i rarely download apps but whenever i do, i make sure i read reviews first.

Its like Windows, if you bother actually reading up on stuff nothing will ever happen to you. I applaud people doing that, the same of course goes for Android. The problem is, not everybody behaves like me and you.

http://www.phonearena.com/news/Android-malware-perspective-only-0.5-comes-from-the-Play-Store_id36696 People who get malware on Android are the one's that side load apps from the internet. The tiniest percent of malware comes from the GPS that it shouldn't even be mentioned.

BB will be fine; all BB need is a good marketing team and a decent & secure OS and no one can touch them because of their history of being a business phone. Samsung needs to stay focus on the consumers side of the mobile phone, are they will find their self in 3rd or 4th place; this area change fast they have no time to play with business folks.

Wow... Sammy is really becoming the 800lb gorilla in the room. Let's go competition, step it up. Samsung: All your business are belong to us.

I'm sorry sammy but i wouldn't say you're the safest company in the world when it comes to smartphones, nor that android i the safest OS for enterprises : I mean we all know the Exynos bug and how android is prone to viruses. I don't say that android sucks or anything but entreprises are more secure with olther OSes

I find it very interesting that Samsung tries to take shots at Blackberry with a OS that doesn't belong to them. How about Samsung do what blackberry did and build a OS from scratch and then brag about it. You can't take Android, add a few things and call it yours. Maybe they will rip off blackberry like they did with Apple. Hey great ideas come from stolen ideas right lol

Lol you Samsung haters are funny...if they supposed to fail they'll fail but it shouldn't mean they shouldn't try going after the business sector...let's not forget Samsung can't fail if everyone else is doing poor themeselves...

Apple: "We already have patents in place that ban anyone else from the ability to do anything related to enterprise capability so we motion to sue Samsung for 1.2 billion in addition to halting any production of Galaxy S IV, Mini, or Note 3. We expect a public apology from Samsung as well. As a matter of fact, we find Jupiter, Mars, Mercury, Uranus, Earth, each & every star, the Sun and the Moon also guilty as we suspect the aforementioned being guilty of their associations w/the "galaxy" (air quotations) which are in direct cahoots w/Samsung." Courts: "...motion denied" **that awkward "clung" sound that happens on that show Law & Order when the scene changes**
