Re: Goodbye, BlackBerry
This corporate BYOD trend is one of the factors destroying BlackBerry. Corporations love BlackBerry for the security and the ability to lock down corporate issued devices. But users, including CEOs and Presidents, have chaffed at the restrictions. And while some deployment environments allow for locking down iOS and Android devices, many companies either don't lock them down as tightly by choice or out of ignorance.
I'm using an iPhone now because I'm out of the corporate world (finally!) and because the rest of my family is using them. It's just easier this way. Plus I'm a Mac user and the constant need to find workarounds to get my BlackBerry to do what an iPhone does natively just wore me out.
