Default Blackberry Revolution

So Blackberry already dominates the business consumer. This we know. The 8100 is squarely aimed at making progress with everyone else, aka the non -BES users. It does have some exciting cross over technology however, namely the 4.2 firmware, the joystick controller, and the micro SD slot. As a BES admin I know I am most definately concerned about the security implications of adding an SD reader to a Blackberry. Hopefully They will include ways to limit/disable the SD and camera features via the BES. I am curious to see how many of these changes carry over into the full qwerty devices, but regardless, I know I'll have users asking to get one of these puppies on our BES. After all, who doesn't want their company to buy them an MP3 and video player Blackberry. Although these features are fun for myself, I'm pretty sure they are going to add some real headaches to my job.
