Comments

At BlackBerry Live 2013, BlackBerry has just made a pretty major announcement. As of Summer 2013, BBM will be cross platform. This has been discussed for some time and many have debated whether or not it will happen.

During the same day, RIM was also presenting its progress on BlackBerry 10 at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier. While there wasn’t much new on the BlackBerry 10 side of things (at least since what we saw at BlackBerry Jam), it was interesting to see RIM tout its FIPS certifications and announce that BlackBerry 10 was FIPS certified before launch (an industry first). But RIM isn’t unique in its ability to get FIPS certification. Other smartphones will get it. So what is RIM’s competitive advantage in a market where its competitors are also FIPS certified?
