A new kind of Android fork

by Volker Weber

Another company is beginning to develop its own platform based on Android as well. In this case, however, it isn't differentiating itself based on its interface or app/content stores. Instead, this new Android-based platform is being built around the ability to secure, manage, and integrate with key enterprise systems in ways that go beyond what Google builds into the stock versions of Android.

The company building this new platform is Samsung and that platform is the company's SAFE (Samsung Approved For Enterprise) program.

This is a key version. Consumer products with this build will be more accepted in the enterprise world. AES encryption and much better management, RIM should be looking very closely at it. The major MDM vendors are either supporting the APIs already or going to in this quarter.
