Default Re: BB10 in January?

From what I've seen, most of people those markets have lower end devices, so I wouldn't really classify them as waiting for BB10 devices to be released.

IMO, RIM is moving away from their bread and butter with Mobile Fusion. They're moving away from their infrastructure, moving devices to ActiveSync, and making new handsets. That is a crowded market. How many other manufacturers are making ActiveSync enabled handsets? RIM is a little late to that game. There are also quite a few MDM solutions in the market already, RIM is late to that game as well. These are the things hurting RIM the most. If RIM could somehow get the new BB10 devices to work on their existing BES infrastructure, it would help them out in the enterprise a lot. I don't see a lot of companies shelling out more money, for more servers to a company they've already invested a lot of money into, since that company wants to go another direction. RIM needs to realize this. That is why we are moving away from BlackBerry and looking into other devices/MDM solutions. RIM is pretty much screwing their long time loyal customers.
