BlackBerry’s new BlackBerry 10 OS has received approval by the US Defence Department, which means that BlackBerry 10 devices like the Z10 and Q10 can be used by the US military.
Their BlackBerry PlayBook tablet with BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 has also received approval by the US Defense department, and all three devices can now be used on DoD networks.
“BlackBerry 10 is ideal for our government customers because it offers a rich, highly responsive mobile computing experience, along with BlackBerry’s proven and validated security model – a combination that’s unmatched in the industry,” said Scott Totzke, SVP, BlackBerry Security at BlackBerry. “This approval will enable DoD customers to connect their BlackBerry Z10 or BlackBerry Q10 smartphones to DoD networks and securely access assets from work, while enjoying the wealth of consumer-oriented functionality that BlackBerry 10 brings to market.”
This is good news for BlackBerry, their BlackBerry 10 platform seems to be doing well so far, as are sales of their new devices.
