BlackBerry rolls out iOS support for BlackBerry Enterprise Service

Back in May, we heard from CrackBerry that BlackBerry was getting closer to releasing their Secure Work Spaces for iOS and now, it has finally come out of beta and is available through their BlackBerry Enterprise Service. Not unlike BlackBerry Balance for BlackBerry 10, Secure Work Spaces offers a solution for managed applications so they can be secured and separated from personal apps and data.

Through apps provided as downloads on the iTunes app store, the service offers functions such as integrated email, calendar and contacts, an enterprise-level secure browser and secure document viewing and editing.  As for IT admins, they only need to worry about one management console for all devices running on their network, be it iOS, Android or BlackBerry.

As of today, every major mobile competitor... also makes apps for iOS

A few minutes ago BlackBerry announced BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) for iOS. With that announcement, every single one of Apple's major mobile competitors now makes apps for iOS. Google, who also has Android, makes many very popular apps including Gmail, Maps, Google+, etc. Microsoft, who also has Windows Phone, makes a bunch of apps and games for iOS, including OneNote and Kinnectimals. Nokia, Microsoft's primary Windows Phone partner, also makes Here Maps.

Now, BlackBerry makes BBM.

Apple, by contrast, makes precisely nothing for Android, Windows Phone, or BlackBerry. Not even iTunes.

Interesting.

BlackBerry CEO supposedly says dumb things about the future of tablets, but what are the smart things?

BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins was quoted today as saying tablets didn't have much of a future, product or market-wise. Given the huge, and still growing success of the iPad, even the idea sounds ridiculous. Here's what Bloomberg claimed he said:

iPhone 5 vs. BlackBerry Q10: Which should you buy?

The BlackBerry Q10 represents the return of the original BlackBerry, and unabashedly so. Sure, it runs the same BlackBerry 10 operating system as the full touchscreen BlackBerry Z10, but it packs it into the classic, keyboard package every hardcore communicator and enterprise accomplisher knows and loves. But how does it compare to the iPhone 5, and if you're considering both -- which one should you get?
