BB expects you to license mobile device management from them at assrape prices while running a proprietary server for such (even more $$$ and pain in the ass). Meanwhile Apple and Google let you hook directly up to Microsoft Exchange for email, and run whatever mobile device management product you want for much less (much simpler and cheaper). This makes BB dead to most corporations.
It has no apps at all, which makes it dead to end users.
Blackberry is dead, a husk that Chen is stalling for time to pick all the fat from, some of the meat too, and then sell the software stuff of value to the highest bidder.
I'm eagerly awaiting the Vienna. >no slider means it'll probably be lighter, sturdier, and have a better keyboard than the Priv >smaller screen will probably mean better battery life >will launch with Android Marshmallow >projected MSRP $400
>>52872645 Enterprise loves exchange. Outlook integration, active directory integration, etc... I've been to many fortune 500 and global 1000 companies and I haven't been to one yet that doesn't primarily use exchange for email.
One mail server can send a few emails for one user and one mail server can send many emails for 50k people. Point being percentage of servers on the Internet doesn't have a lot to do with the number of people using exchange, especially with zombie PCS sending shit loads of spam.
>>52873290 Well in murrica, I'm not surprised. You guys can't even into chip credit cards yet, meanwhile the rest of the world's had them for, what, a decade? I think you guys just get stuck with old tech and get too scared to upgrade. Here in Canada and most of civilised Europe though, MS is like a bad memory.
>>52873719 Not him, but just stop, it's so obvious you're designated. My job title is literally "Linux Sysadmin", I work in enterprise in Canada. Then again, I could be lying, but free software doesn't need paid shills like you, does it now? Nobody wants your software, pahjeet, go back to making curry or whatever your country's actual export is.
>>52873955 >Linux Sysadmin Congrats. Or something.
My title is Sr. Systems Architect. So yay me?
You resort to calling me Pahjeet, yet the generally accepted Active Directory saturation for medium to large business is about 90%. Even if it were only 60%, it's still the lions share.
There are very few groupware suites that as well integrated and compelling as Exchange. Especially when you consider Active Directory's market penetration. That being said, IBM uses mostly Domino, and I think Groupwise is still a thing, though I'm not sure for how much longer.
My point I suppose is that any good engineer / admin / architect will look at the needs of $project and use the tools to implement it with the lowest TCO. Sometimes those products are Microsoft. Some times they're not.
My netmon's are mostly CentOS running ZenOSS, because I don't want to make the changes required for SCOM, and have a quantity of non Windows machines anyway.
>>52869790 The main problem with this phone is the keyboard being so short. I would have preferred a slide out keyboard like the torch or a longer phone even, but "muh passport-sized". It's quite frustrating to use it and have your thumb only slide so far before going onto the screen.
The capacitive keyboard otherwise kicks ass, but unfortunately doesn't come with a pointer.
>>52874702 This, quite honest. The passport is a novelty until you get a cursor to actually use its main selling point. It's not like this will be the first BlackBerry with both touch and cursor, or the first QNX with a cursor.
>>52869790 DESU BlackBerry OS is good for productive work. I mean .. Most social apps on it are shitty. So you would focus more on productive apps and maybe a music player. I wouldn't mind getting a q10 but i need snapchat man. I fucking NEEED it.
>>52869790 yes i did and its fucking shit >buggy as fuck software >impossible to get out of your pocket while shitting down. >overheats like a motherfucker >awkward to hold >doesn't support anything >will randomly shut off >camera cant make up its mind on focusing >keyboard is shit and lacks numbers >reception is terrible i got this phone on a 2 year contract and i hate it with a passion. don't buy this piece of shit.
I still use my Q10 and its fucking amazing, I would never replace it even the passport will never come close. I'll MAYBE replace it with the Classic since it has a nice keyboard and similar form factor.
>>52877927 Most of the Android games I've tried have worked, don't have too many BB10OS games but there is native RetroArch with keyboard support so I never really spent much time looking for BB10OS games
>>52880231 Not all Android apps can be side loaded. Those that can generally run slow and nearly always redraw if you need to multitask. Native bb10 apps never redraw but have been abandoned by most developers.
There hasn't been a new bb10 os leak in months (they stopped updating it officially).
I loved my q10 but that platform is dead as fuck. Switched to an LG g3.
i'm getting one in the next months. what tipe would you suggest me? The Normal one or the Silver Edition one? I read that the SE one has some hardware updates but there is a difference between the two prices...
>>52884995 it is basically the same thing with rounded edges. personally i prefer the sexy edge to edge glass on the normal version. but the sharp corners of the normal version do dig into your hands abit.
>>52884995 I have the silver edition and it's totally awesome. I have no idea what the normal passport's antenna is like, but I mainly bought it because my Z10's reception sucked ass and the silver edition supposedly has a better antenna.
>>52870113 >god tier aspect ratio Surely you meant objectively shit for everything aspect ratio? Document usage, you want a portrait orientation with that keyboard. Media consumption and games, you want landscape, at least 3:2. You want something that's comfortable to hold in one hand? Yeah let's make a fucking SQUARE.
