RIM still has fans among developers and administrators

The way BlackBerry 10 implements work and personal partitions set it apart from the competition

RIM doesn't have the same extreme focus on the enterprise as the company has had in the past and is instead developing a platform that tries to attract consumers while being "good enough for the enterprise," according to Wallin.

"We think that there will only be about a tenth of the number of policies implemented on BlackBerry 10 compared to the current version of RIM OS," said Wallin.

BlackBerry 10 will still have more policies for remote management compared to Apple's iOS, but the difference will be nowhere near as big as before, according to Wallin.

While the London Jam attendees should give RIM some hope, they also help illustrate RIM's current problem. Out of about 15 attendees that were spotted playing with their phones before the event started, only five were using a RIM device.
