RIM to perform a Blackberry Enterprise Roadshow

Bill Gates

Research in Motion is moving to protect its base with a tour of enterprises to sell corporations on BlackBerry 10 as well as its mobile device management chops.

Given that a tour is underway ---RIM has a few sessions at Gartner Symposium here to court CIOs--- the company didn't need to be kicked around. But RIM did take a few shots on Monday.

First, Gartner research chief Peter Sondergaard said that in two years there will be more Apple iPad devices than BlackBerries in corporations. Then, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) said in a solicitation document that it is choosing the iPhone over RIM's BlackBerry.
