I just finished up a computer security conference and noticed something very interesting. There were hundreds of Blackberrys running around in the hands of these security professionals and almost no Treos. Just an observation

As a security consultant I find Blackberrys to be extremely secure. Especially in light of the advanced security features in 4.1 (Memory wiping, HIDS like program permission, etc...)

Treos are great consumer devices. While some argue that the security features are a bit much, those of us in computer and network security are very happy with our BlackBerrys...
