Interesting responses to my original post, thanks.

Unfortuneately my 60,000 employee company has no plans to support BES10 so the Q10 is not an option. I will be travelling regularly so really need roaming data (Whatsapp etc). I cannot justify the ludicrous data roaming charges so I have decided to purchase the best available BB7 device which I believe to be the 9900 (correct me soon if wrong) because of the global BES and BIS features.

Even if my company did support BES10 I believe they would cripple it as they did my curve with the corporate policies as this is a for business device or is that not the way BB10 is designed to be used in its app-centric focus?

The 4 year old design was taken from a Huffington Post review (I tried linking but was not allowed). Remember if you are a BB apostle a full-on touch screen device must seem like the first snowfall of winter but to experienced Android and iOS users it is old-hat.

Anyways, sticking with BB because of BIS. Blackberry please take note...
