Via MIT’s Technology Review:
Enter the iPhone. Apple’s security architecture is so sturdy, and so tightly woven into its hardware and software, that it is both easy for consumers to use encryption on their phones and very difficult for someone else to steal the encrypted information.
An iPhone with an alpha-numeric password is pretty much impenetrable. No wonder corporations are finding it so easy to dump the BlackBerry. Of course, the concern here is that it’s also equally secure for criminals.
Also another reason nobody’s buying RIM. There’s nothing worth buying. Even in device security, RIM’s so-called “advantage,” there’s a competitor that’s better at it.
