Are you looking for a phone with absolute rock solid secure calls, data and text,

the United States, I'm sure its secure enough for me too.

In fact its so secure, the middle east is going to ban Blackberrys because
they cant snoop on them and see what people in their country are shareing
or talking about.

And with just about everyone putting every possible bit of personal
information on their phones, I deffinetly want mine as secure as possible.

Anything else is a toy IMO. If you really need a big fat screen and HDMI, and
1.2g cpu, and thousands of apps (some good, some a waste of time), then
you probably want to look at something else or get a laptop.

Now in the news, iPhone has a new threat, they are totaly hackable!
D'uh! It was never desigend to be a secure device for communication.
Its an iPod that has been modified to make phone calls.

It boils down to if you like what Blackberry is offering, fine.
If you don't, thats fine too.

Its free world, its your choice.
While your totally right in terms of it being a secure device favored among the IT admins RIM can't bank on that long term. I work for a health care IT solutions provider and a year ago if you asked would and iphone be avil in on of our environments the answer would have been a definite no. But this is has changed and inroads are being made in this space we have small groups of physicians now carring iphones and the numbers are changing on a daily bases and the demand is there. Our own government has iphone offerings for officials now. The iphone and any other device can be locked down to satisfaction (does this make them unhackable or better choose no). They need to make moves to stay relevant.
