More bad news for struggling vendor BlackBerry (BBRY) emerged on Friday as a report surfaced suggesting Samsung (005930) is planning to enter the enterprise space. Boston-based brokerage firm Detwiler Fenton said in a note on Friday morning that Samsung plans to unveil a new enterprise platform at the Mobile World Congress trade show later this month that will compete with BlackBerry’s next-generation BlackBerry 10 operating system. No other details were provided, but the news comes as a huge blow to BlackBerry considering its reliance on the enterprise market. BlackBerry shares were trading down more than 2.5% on the news.
