Rumor: No VPN for Windows Phone any time soon

VPN

The rumor mill is swirling again, and this time is concerns the all important enterprise necessity VPN.  It had been previously reported that VPN would not come until GDR3. But sources close to Microsoft are now reporting that VPN may not arrive until Windows Phone Blue, Q1 2014, or even later!  Windows Mobile did have VPN support and in fact had a number of enterprise features that are still not available in Windows Phone.  Historically Microsoft has had strong support for the enterprise and the omission of VPN for so long is highly unusual. Microsoft has certainly been aware of demand for VPN for quite some time.

Is VPN important to you or your employer? Is it holding you back from buying a Windows Phone? Let us know in the comments below.
