PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Engadget has something that could, if you squint, be regarded as a hands-on of BlackBerry 10. "We finally got a chance to cut through the smoke and mirrors of the company's polished PowerPoint presentations to get some honest-to-goodness, up-close and personal time testing the software." This is all they seem to be confident enough to show. Not a good sign for RIM. Not good at all.

RIM has all but been replaced in the general consumer market in most countries, but when it comes to commercial use, it still is doing pretty well and really is a very high quality device. It's not my preference, I prefer my Samsung Galaxy, but I certainly can't say RIM does not put out a quality product.

RIM [...] when it comes to commercial use, it still is doing pretty well

Who knows how long that might last. Samsung just unveiled SAFE ("Samsung Approved for Enterprise" - syncing, VPN, device managements, encryption, the usual) brand of devices, starting with SAFE Galaxy S III.

And the SAFE2SWITCH program - corporate customers can trade their current smartphones. Just when RIM is on a slightly shaky legs overall...
