re: RIM Set To Manage Android And iOS Devices
This is a good move for RIM to make, albeit a bit overdue. I realize they were invested in their own hardware and have been reluctant to support other platforms amid concern that sales of the blackberry and/or playbook might suffer as a result. Now that this concern has been all but realized, dare I say that we are seeing a glimmer of humility, or simply a last-ditch effort on the part of RIM to hold on to what little remaining enterprise business it has left? Perhaps it is too soon to tell. For my part, I have a tendency to root for the underdog, so I hope they succeed in carving out a niche for themselves. Competition is always a healthy thing to see - in any industry.

Yeah, this is pretty much a necessity for them. They do have a lot of skill here and could be one of the better MDM providers eventually.
