Steve discusses the reasons why that is and what company is most at risk of an all-out Samsung enterprise blitz.

    Samsung / Android can never be really good for the Enterprise or Government Agencies, BECAUSE "Android by its nature or DNA is NOT SECURE".

    Android operating system Software has been given free of charge to over 20 companies around the world, so not only does China's Military have the actual lines of Android Software code, but so does Iran, and North Korea. Plus Android itself was made from JAVA Language -- Java itself is an open-source softwarre language available to any computer science student or hacker around the world. ONLY BLACKBERRY AND APPLE HAVE UNIQUE PROPRIETARY SOFTWARE for Smartphones, that no other company or quasi-CIA has copies of.

    Do you really think that China hasn't reverse engineered ios? That has been a big thing since the beginning of computers. China has people hacking our "secure" comoputer systems 100-1000's of times a DAY! They have so many people and have no problem using people doing tedious work to get to the bottom line.

    Our enemies have taken prisoners and others to take shreaded documents and recreate them. When you have enough people and don't care about the time it can be done.
