During BlackBerry Live a few announcements were made that have interest research firm Jefferies & Co, first the outstanding sellings of the BlackBerry Q10 device in markets shy of US Launch, increasing BlackBerry’s software portfolio by allowing BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) to run on Android and iOS, and BlackBerry adding the BlackBerry Q5 to its BB10 lineup, allowing for a budget friendly device to bring a BlackBerry 10 uprising in emerging markets. Finally news coming about from a report that the Verizon company has made its 10,000 employees switch from Android to Blackberry. Both Verizon Wireless and AT&T are on positive tracks for the use and adoption of BlackBerry Q10 and BES 10.1. It has also been predicted that Verizon Communications and AT&T will select BES 10.1 for their MDM choice to customers.
“We think the availability of the streamlined BES10.1 will catalyze enterprises to shift from trials of BES10 to broader roll-outs beyond the already installed 12K BES10 servers,” Misek said.
The new Regulated-level EMM options in BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 version 10.1 give our government and high-security customers the advanced settings they need to have complete control of the BlackBerry 10 smartphones connected to their networks,” said David J Smith, EVP, Enterprise Mobile Computing. “Extending BlackBerry security, device and application management to iOS and Android frees our customers from the need to invest in multiple device management technologies, giving them an easy and cost-effective upgrade path to a solution that supports their entire mobile environment globally.”
Peter Misek also increased the Buy rating to $22 price target for BlackBerry (NASDAQ: BBRY) today with successful launches and sale for the Q10 in the UK and Canada
