RIMs Devenyi Praises BlackBerry 7, BlackBerry 10
No doubt, BlackBerry 10 will be a whole new level for the future, yet BlackBerry 7 is a tremendous advancement and a competitive device that's still viewed as far and away the No. 1 device out there for use within the enterprise. Analysts, to a degree, have been inclined to agree with such statements.Still, regarding RIMs push of the devices ahead of its BlackBerry 10 launch, Dulaney couched his remarks by saying that if one were planning on switching to a touch-screen device, there would be no way to justify the purchase of a new BlackBerry 7 device today. In recent weeks, RIM CEO Heins has several times referred to RIM moving into mobile computing. What exactly does this refer to? Devenyi explained that this refers to RIM's building a complete end-to-end platformnot just a platform on which two people can communicate, but one that anticipates a future with new devices and new ways of communicating.
The BlackBerry 7 devices still are among the best for those who want a touch-typeable keyboard and very granular control over email, combined with good security, said Ken Dulaney, an analyst with Gartner who looks at the mobile enterprise market.
