If you're going to write about BlackBerry at least try and get somewhere near the facts
The fact is that all apps that run on BlackBerry run in a "sandbox" environment.
The base OS is therefore protected from the machinations of naughty Android apks.
So you get all the benefits of the most secure and bullet proof smartphone OS, plus lots of native BlackBerry apps, plus pretty well the full catalogue of Android apps. All of these apps running in a sandbox with protected API's.
And there will continue to be a healthy developer community writing native apps for BlackBerry because it's an excellent architecture.
Obviously if you're not carefully what you download you can be subject to the same malware and viruses that afflict other devices. But at least you can be sure your personal and corporate data is protected (you can't download apk's to the protected corporate section of the phone).
What really pisses me off is the lazy journalism and schadenfreude surrounding BlackBerry. Journalists who can't be bothered to properly research BlackBerry perhaps because they're scared to death they might have to write something positive. So much easier to go with the flow than write something original.
