BlackBerry Mobile Fusion 6 Service Pack 2 Now Available


I just installed that service pack yesterday. The additions and fixes to the Universal Device Service were a significant improvement. I'm still in the test phase at my client but I think they'll be rolling it out or BES 10 in the new year.

I don't see RIM really making any money when the BB10 comes out simply because most of the out there aren't really keen and interested in having to run multiple servers which the new Fusion Mobile (or Mobile Fusion) requires that they have started to investigate secure MDM solutions for other devices like iPhone and Android which cost a lot less than building and managing FM or MF servers.

BES 10 consolidates them all and can be ran virtually. I'm running all the MF Suite virtually and it works. Just an FYI, other MDM's can manage IOS and Android but im pretty confident that when BES 10 comes out, those other MDM's will not be capable of providing the same features as BES 10 will.
