Great news!! Would be nice to understand if they got also BB10 devices but at the end of the day what count is how many licenses for BES they sold. Let's keep this nice pace.. one press release (at least) per day. And I want to see soon names also from the States!

The article says BYOD.

surferito

BYOD doesn't mean that the company executives or management need to buy their own devices. I work for a large corporation and the company still provide the phones to the management but if they want they can use their own device, some for other employees.

Indeed! And rest assured they will with World Cup 2014 Finals tomorrow.

I think this would be worth spending 2million worth of advertising and setti.g up a booth at the stadium!! Showing of those BBM signature photos from mybbm.com and emoticons for world cup.

People were wondering where were the revenue streams going to come from now that BIS was heading in time to extinction. BlackBerry stock and RIM were painted time and time again by the media as being dead. The new revenue stream will be even better in time. As companies adopt BES10/12 as their managing software for all devices, BlackBerry will make money off of all devices. BES10 has not only been proven the best for this task, it has been proven to be the least cost. This is a big plus for revenues not dependent on handset sales.

Exactly. Like Chen said in one of the interviews: BlackBerry main goal is to get current and prospective customers on board with BES 10 with different incentives. Once they have a chance to experiment with BES 10, they will likely upgrade and revenue will true flow.

I think the marketing strategy here is quite clear. These are not astonishing deals in themselves in any way, but what they're trying to do is create a momentum in terms of the perception. Some of this will get through, some won't, but what they're trying to do is create a belief that every man and his dog is signing up for it, and your business really ought to do the same.

Quite clever really.

Playbook007

Yes to some extent. But you will see a lot more BES10 adoption. BlackBerry has installed a lot of BES10 trials. These will now start complete adoption and revenues will flow. When Chen said the company will return to profit 2016, he wasn't banking on handset sales. It was the revenues mainly coming on line from BES10 and it's BYOD controls along with necessary cost cutting strategies. All these companies will find though that the real value of corporate BES10 and mobile devices comes to life with standardization and BB10 devices.

No doubt - but that's not what these constant press releases are about; they're about trying to build momentum through perception. It's all about countering the received wisdom of a doomed company, irrespective of whether they are getting sign ups or not. It's effective.

Great news, would be nice to see sales of a few 1000 BlackBerry 10 phones to go with these sales, but it's not going to happen overnight!

BES with Blackberry is the most secure and carefree solution. Its turn key, don't have to do any major firewall or infrastucture change to accommodate. Its a no brainer for IT. The iOS and Android Solution is unique and inherts the same design tenets.

Too bad this is being implemented as BYOD. What that really means is that everyone will be using Iphones while Blackberry is running on a server in a closet somewhere.

BlackBerryRules2006

It's still revenue. BlackBerry is bigger than just hand sets. That's what Chen has been saying this whole time.

Next BBM update....BBM Peek
