  1. Are they hiring? 😀

  2. How significant is 1600?
    What I mean is, is there BES involved that is where the real $ is in or are they paying retail price for each phone!!!

    • BES is definitely involved. Otherwise they would not be able to connect to the BES. Most of these corporations have been waiting for OS 10.1 and BES 10.1 that allows for corporate liable devices.

  3. This is a huge endorsement from the TOP UK Lawyers.

    Todayonly consumers chasing q10 really; after BES10 is out…Q10 numbers will truly blow up.
