This is a blatant plagiarism of my personal motto. You will be hearing from my lawyers.
Samsung is touting a new package called KNOX that attempts to split an Android device in two separate halves, one for business and the other for personal use. Fresh from tussling with Apple for global smartphone supremacy, the South Koreans are now ready to tear into BlackBerry and invade its home turf of enterprise users. …
I don't care about separate personal and corporate; give me an alternative to encrypted comms and BES so CESG will approve something other than blackberry devices for mobile email... it's actually why I'm praying that BB10 will fail and the company go bust so they HAVE to approve something else :)
You've got to be kidding. If BlackBerry disappears that doesn't automatically mean that CESG will certify something else, far from it. Apple, Samsung or who ever would still have to pay them to certify their products. And there's a big step between the few brief details we have here and a shiny certificate. Android in particular will be problematic with its anarchistic ecosystem, whether or not it has domain integration.
Apple and Google have concentrated on the consumer market; it's much bigger than the enterprise market. That's why they've not really bothered asking CESG to give it the once over.
If Samsung ups its game and especially gets going on some decent management tools, it forces RIM to keep innovating and Apple to do more than pretend they give a toss about corporate.
As for the SAFE models - these ones won't have a world-write driver permission just so the camera works... right?
