Blackberry + Android = bad
You buy a Blackberry phone because of it's reputation for security. The things are several hundred dollars after all,and you can pick up an android for 109$ Cnd here in Ottawa as of a week ago. Full price no contract.
Windows OS is owned by microsoft who is beholden to Homeland Secruity , FISA 215 , and the whole NSA security mess. Any phone running windows (most black berries ) is now viewed with supreme suspicion by any tech security people.
Android OS is owned by google , which is STILL beholden to homeland secruity , FISA 215, and NSA , and is STILL viewed with supreme suspicion by any tech people. Any american product will be , of course, since USGov is now requiring all us corperations to cooperate with the NSA , put in back doors, break encryption , etc.
I believe it's a good idea to get rid of that microsoft OS , which is highly untrustworthy securitywise these days. But swapping it out for an OS that is just as untrustworthy (android) would be quite foolish. The black berry representative in this article mentioned some kind of custom black berry 10 OS , I believe that is the way to go. Write your own OS from the ground up. In these post snowden days, it's the only "secure" way to go.
(edited : added) Also , your own hardware ,no buying cheap parts from the USA or China. Now that we're into the age where the USA is putting extra little bits of hardware into CISCO routers that are being shipped to china , that's dead, security wise. All parts have to be built entirely in the country of origin. Starting right from sand and screws and wires, to making your own chips and boards and cases. All the way up .
It's a brave new world, and it's gonna take a while to adapt.
