BlackBerry rules Pentagon Security System

Posted by

BlackBerry Q10


According to NextGov.com, a Pentagon system intended to secure a mix of brand name smartphones for warfighters will primarily support BlackBerrys when the tool starts launching later this month, according to Defense Department officials. The implementation will see about 80,000 BlackBerrys and 1,800 Defense-owned Apple and Android-based phones and tablets hooked up to the new management system from January 31.

That’s BlackBerry claiming 98% of the package. Not too shabby for a niche player.
