    I am unsure on BB10 and I will tell you why. As a mobility engineer I am responsible for our mobile stuff here at my work. We have a BES and we use Good Mobile Messaging. BB10 requires a brand new BES server, they won't work on the existing BES. So in order for businesses to move to BB10, they have to make the choice to spin up yet another managment environment. Of our 1100 corporate owned devices, only about 120 or so remain Blackberry (used to be 900 a few years ago.) Somebody is going to have to convince the right people to spend time putting up a BB10 environment. So it's not a slam dunk.

    I'm not a mobility engineer, but I did manage our company's BB server. We're much smaller than your company, at our height we had 25 licenses all fully active, now we have the free BlackBerry Server Express running but I don't think we have a single BB device left. I didn't know that BB10 requires a new BES server, that does kinda complicate things. Do you know if they're going to have a BIS service for BB10? They'd pretty much have to, I'd assume, but I've known companies to make dumber mistakes. :)

    I don't know if they will have BIS or what. To be honest I have spent no time looking into it. BB10 devices will also support ActiveSync so that could be an option for some shops if they just use ActiveSync.

    Other things in favor of BB10 is something WP8 lacks.. S/MIME for encrypted email. It STILL doesn't support it. I don't know if BB10 does, but all their older OS's do. It's not a big deal on the consumer side, but that is pretty much the only reason I still have a BES.

The reason is that the apps I regularly use just aren't on WP8. Normally I would ditch the unused phone in heartbeat, but I like WP8 and the 820 too much to sell it and I really want WP8 to succeed so I'm holding out, heh.

    But I'm having a hard time thinking that WP8 is going to beat out BB10, though, especially if BB10 gets Instagram (and other apps) right out of the gate. It saddens me, really, because WP8 has the potential to clean house... it's such an advanced and slick OS, and the integration with Win 8 on the desktop and tablet is unlike any other. But... c'est la vie. If nothing else, I've got myself a cool little mini tablet to play with. :)
    im right there with you. Every word identical to my thoughts haha. I'm preying for them and yes they DO have the ability to clean house they just need the damn APPS!
    AND YES im preying that BB10 doesn't get insyagram and others out the gate. Microsoft will have a fit, and if they can't get the devs on board, they KNOW they're screwed! I've been reading, and ZDNet says BB10 is what they're most excited about although they WANT to have faith, like us, in W8. ITS scary. If the bloggers are on board... Ahhhhh lol

    Here's the question: If they did create an app, and they only updated it to fix bugs early on, then left it in the store for months without changes, would we be fine with that?

    Then stop spamming.
    And petitions are very dumb.
    Especially for an app like Instagram.

    There are better and more important features that Microsoft and third party developers should be working on bringing to WP8.

    Come on, guys. If people want to push a petition for Instagram, let them be. After all, the worse it can do is help the platform.

    Chris Weber says in an article here in WPCentral that both Nokia and Microsoft are already putting a lot of effort for getting Instagram for WP8. I don't think any petition is needed here, they know that Instagram is popular and want to offer it as soon as possible.

    No, petitions won't help the platform. App publishers aren't the US government where a certain number of signatures requires some kind of action. What will help the platform is people using Windows Phone; what good is a petition going to do when prospective app publishers see a less than 2% usage rate (or whatever it is now)?

    So a petition with 200k+ signatures wouldn't get the attention of Kevin Systrom & Mike Krieger?? hmm....

    Agreed on the latter.
