    We just announced our users that we won't support BB by July 2013. Only ActiveSync devices.

    BB used to be 80% or our user base. Now, it is less than 10%.

    Actually none of their phones are particularly 'high-end" compared to the competition with regards to screen resolution because they are restricted to 480x800 by MSFT.

    The application market for that platform is still terribly limited compared to iOS and Android as well.

    The difference between iPhone (or Android phones) and WinMo8 is that the new phones and their associated operating systems will almost surely run the old software more or less natively. WinMo8 is based on Windows 8 so it seems likely that you'll have to forsake your WinMo7 based software unless they come out with an emulator.

    Well, with some different info, things change for me. Since there won't be any cost for software or licenses for me, I started building my BB10 server today, will finish up tomorrow, then get a device when they become available from Verizon. After the things they have shown so far, anyone else going for it?

    After seeing screen shots and people that have had a hands on with it, I feel BB10 might surprise a lot of people

    Perhaps. I will be at the launch next week. Surprising people isn't enough. Getting them to give up their SGS III, Nokia Lumia 920 or iPhone 5 will be the issue.

    It is a nice device. But what will make it fly off the shelves (and "Peek" and "Flow" may not be enough).

    And how many companies (dpeters11's is obviously NOT one) are not going to bother with a brand new BES when they have a nice MDM already installed.

    Cautiously optimistic.

    I actually tried to get Good in here, but one user that tried it didn't like it on iOS, so it was killed.

    So far my biggest hurdle, it seems the tradein website doesn't accept 6 digit SRPs...
