We have been hearing quite a bit about the BES 10 cloud hosted version since BlackBerry first mentioned it and then rolled out two beta tests. Now BlackBerry’s enterprise head in India has confirmed that the platform will roll out shortly. Supposedly BlackBerry plans on hitting the small and medium business markets with this hosted version to support BYOD. They went on to confirm that 1,000 of the 30,000 BES 10 installations have happened in India in the last 12 months and BlackBerry is expecting a 50% quarterly growth in India.
The BlackBerry exec also confirmed that the first Foxconn phone, the BlackBerry Z3, will be priced much lower than current BlackBerry phones.
