BlackBerry 10's chances of success poll
30 Jan 2013
Yes, it is the best mobile platform for the enterprise
No, Apple and Android devices are too entrenched now
No, I think Windows Phone 8 is better for business
We're going to let employees choose via a BYOD strategy
Only if it wins over consumers as its traditional business base has declined too far
Have your say
it does have outlook sync

I have only ever had BB. I have suffered like other remaining clients in the last year waiting for RIm to get it together.
I get my Z10 and the first thing I notice, The platform is stellar fast. The second thing is they no longer support Outlook Sync,.
This is another example where they rather give us a Game app like Angry Birds over something that their users love and partially stayed with them for over Apple or Android.!!!!!!
Unless they know something we don't this method of thinking is what is sinking them. They are so out of touch no matter how hard they try. I have not interest in using a exchange service to pay for this sync option or use the Cloud.
The Voice technology? what's that all about. They use some Cold sounding voice. In a day and age where we have to be hands free in many places arounbd the world while driving, you would think they would have put more into this !!!!
You cannot even ask it to navigate ! It has about 13 items you can ask it, most of which it will just open a browser and do an internet search., then you are on your own.
This 2 way voice interaction was what started out as a novelty is fast becoming a very useful tool.
I have returned my Z-10 this morning.

Windows Phone already took 3rd place in sales - Blackberry are dying. There is no need to have a Blackberry server or pay a monthly Blackberry server fee anymore in the Enterprise. Windows phone is a better OS to use, has over twice the number of apps, and has many handset manufacturers behind it.

I've tested the Z10, whilst it's a great fast device, I'm going to waiting for the Q10, I still prefer to type on a real qwerty pad.
The Q10 will come with a touch screen too, just wish it came out at the same time as the Z10, but all good things come to those who wait.

I read some reviews and expected another curve while in fact it is a little looker! Would easily swap my Samsung...

From my experience of Blackberry (a few years with BES) I would say that Blackberry is very good for enterprise as long as you've got the experience of BES. It's market is enterprise - where it is excellent, not consumer.
