  • BlackBerry Will Make Up 98% Of The Pentagon's Mobile Phones






    Back in 2013, we told you that BlackBerry had been granted with the authority to operate for the US Department of Defense. During that time, the government had tried to migrate to the iPhone and Android and well, quite frankly, they failed.

    This failure caused the government to look back to where security is the best..BlackBerry. Now in a report by Next Gov, now that the DOD has gone back to BlackBerry, the mobile phone maker is now poised to make up 98% of the Pentagon's phone devices.

    About 80,000 BlackBerrys and 1,800 Defense-owned Apple and Android-based phones and tablets will begin being hooked up to the new management system on Jan. 31, officials announced on Friday.
    It makes you wonder what the Government was thinking when they wanted to move into a BYOD environment with such important security measures needed. One of our writers, John Wollaston, is in the US Army and we've talked about the BYOD push and debacle. He's currently waiting for his BlackBerry 10 to be migrated into the DOD network.Overall, it's great news for BlackBerry to have such a majority of the mobile devices in the US DOD.
