So one Enterprise server for OS 7.1 and lower and another Enterprise server for BB10.
What was RIM/Blackberry (what genius thought that the name RIM had no value?) thinking if it requires a new server to run BB10 and that it is not compatible with earlier OS versions?
If I have to run on Active Sync with my Z10 or Q10, until there anough other users in the firm to justify a new server, there goes my arguement that allowing iPhone or other non-BlackBerry phones is less secure.
Talk about a road block for existing Enterprise BlackBerry users migrating to OS 10 devices!!!
Enterprise is where the loyality to BlackBerry has been almost rock solid. What a way to loosing the most loyal customers.
The QWERTY keyboard may not be enough for the Enterprise users.
This is a well-known fact, and the word you're looking for is server, not surver.
