It seems that the BlackBerry Z10 is being adopted by yet another important Enterprise customer. We reported last week that the German government were taking on 5000 new BlackBerry Z10's which was awesome news but now a UK agency is following suit. Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health Foundation Trust (BSMHFT) are to roll out 1,800 BlackBerry Z10 smartphones which makes me happy!
Z10 sales in the the UK have already trebled the first week sales figures of any previous BlackBerry with consumers - and it now looks like businesses are seeing sense and jumping onboard too. In the UK, more than 1,000 enterprise customers and developers registered to attend the recent BlackBerry Experience Forum targeting the enterprise community in London. Attendees at the forum learnt how BlackBerry’s completely re-invented suite of products, solutions and services work seamlessly together to enable enterprises of all sizes to easily deploy, manage, and secure BYOD and corporate mobile devices.
More than 100 UK public and private sector organizations are currently trialing the BlackBerry 10. These include BT, Centrica, Aviva, The Co-Operative Group and University Hospital Birmingham. In addition to this, the Head of Technical Services of BSMHFT announced at the BlackBerry Enterprise Forum, that his organization plans to deploy 1,800 BlackBerry Z10 smartphones to its staff - BOOM!
Let the good times continue - BlackBerry 10 is here to stay.
