Default Re: BES 5 and BES 10 on same server and BB CALS?

If you use BES10 + Blackberry 10 devices, you need a device CAL for every device. About $80 Per device if I am remember correct. Dont forget you dont have to pay an extra monthly charge to your wireless provider if you use BBB10 devices. This easily sums up to the price of a permanent CAL within one year.

The reason why BES10 is not backwards compatible ?
This is a complete new software, for a new hard and software platform. Sure, it would be nice if it was backwards compatible, but, it is not.
However, with the BES10 comes a unified console which allows to manage any blackberry device. The functionality is basic, but maybe enough to be useful.
