Now that BlackBerry has fallen significantly behind Apple and Google in the race to offer features and third-party apps for its smartphones, the company is concentrating on providing devices that, it claims, have the strongest available security -- the killer feature for the enterprise.
BlackBerry has always touted its mobile devices as secure. But now it plans to make them "more secure" by acquiring a German company that specializes in voice encryption.
From a devices perspective, BlackBerry went from being arguably the go-to vendor for mobile device deployments, to a heavily-scrutinised brand among consumers on the back of the boom in Android and iOS-based smartphones (and tablets).

About the only good news for Windows Phone is that seems to be holding steady ahead of BlackBerry.
It's been a long time since I had an iPhone. I've spent a few years wishing I had one again. But now that I do, I'm not as pleased as I expected to be.
