"“The Department of Defense is taking a leadership role in leveraging mobile device technology by ensuring its workforce is empowered with mobile devices,” said Teri Takai, Defense Department chief information officer. "
"The Department of Defense has seen the benefits of the bring your own device (BYOD) trend in corporate America and it simply does not want to be left behind."
"The actions of the U. S. DoD set a precedence for governments throughout the world. The point is that BlackBerry will be hurt not only in the United States, but everywhere."
And let's not forget that the DoD has given other phone companies till mid 2014 to bring theirs to try to same security as Blackberry.
If they succeed they will review mid 2014.
DoD has 360,000 blackberry users, but I doubt anyone will switch once they have experienced Z10. And why would they want to use 2 phones when the Z10 can do personal and corporate via their balance app.
Seems to me that the DoD has a huge order (360K) waiting in the wings for the Blackberry 10 once it's released..
June 2014 is a long long way off.. BBRY should be at 100$/sh by then.
