If I ever convince myself to get a 'smartphone' I think it will be the BB10. I like RIM's security features and I just don't feel confident about Android.

If bb can actually deliver on promises this time they may be saved in north america... However my worry is that by the time it comes out (and bug free but i doubt that) they may be eclipsed already

I suspect that the US gov't level of security is much higher than typical corporate standards, but I know that a lot of oil companies already have third party software that lets apple and android phones meet their security standards. For a non-work phone, I'm not sure how many people are worried about their angry birds scores getting hacked.

BB has a huge uphill battle ahead of them vs Apple, Android and Win8 phones, but if they can keep/regain their niche as an ultra secure platform and put out quality competitive hardware they may have a chance to stay alive.

Truly secure devices won't be a niche market very shortly in North America once we start paying for everything with our phones... Like they already do in parts of Scandinavia. Once that begins there is no way I would trust my current iPhone to secure my transactional information.

The general punlic already have so much secure data on their android phones this will make no real difference for them. Most people have no common sense and I cannot believe how many actually trust android platforms as they are so insecure.
