Do they really want to deal with RIM outages? MDM would prevent them from going on Facebook or Groupon just like their BES prevents the BB from doing that. Otherwise, they could do those things from their BB. So that part of the article is a little off.

I was just at a seminar today that had nothing to do with BlackBerrys or smartphones, but at one point, the talk turned to RIM and their future and just about everyone at the seminar agreed that they did not like the way RIM is headed with the having to manage your existing BES in addition to Mobile Fusion for BB10 devices. One of them made the statement that he would be surprised if many companies will still be using BlackBerry in two years. Unfortunately, I don't see my company being BlackBerry users in two years time, not with the announcement of Mobile Fusion and it's lack of support for GroupWise.
The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.
When you take things for granted, the things you are granted, get taken.
Even a mosquito doesn't get a pat on the back until it starts to work.
Too many people miss the silver lining because they're expecting gold.
