More Than 5 Major Weaknesses In MobileIron Prevent It From Being A BlackBerry Killer
- Deutsche Bank's Karl Keirstead is basing his analysis on outdated information on BlackBerry. All 3 issues he mentioned are no longer valid.
- MobileIron has many competitors and all of them will be supporting iOS 8. BlackBerry included.
- If BlackBerry's devices (Passport, Z3, Classic) sell, EZ-Pass (which does not expire until January 31, 2015) may get extended indefinitely as a loss leader.
- When BES12 launches this November, the upgrade and technical support is free. BES10 support is free till January 31, 2015.
- There is no incentive to start paying MobileIron or any other MDM just because Apple comes out with iOS8. BlackBerry is giving away their service and it is multi-platform.
