The reason why BES10 is not backwards compatible ?
This is a complete new software, for a new hard and software platform. Sure, it would be nice if it was backwards compatible, but, it is not.
However, with the BES10 comes a unified console which allows to manage any blackberry device. The functionality is basic, but maybe enough to be useful.
Great, thanks a lot for ur help sir.
So what ur saying is we just install the BES10 express (free of cost i think) and then talk to support for CALS??
Also, the unified console can manage all bb 6/7/10 devices? pls confirm if my understanding is correct or wrong?
