    Research In Motion sent out a press release today which confirms what we all know as BlackBerry users that RIM does best...security. They're approved on the United States Department Of Defense approved product list. Wonderful news.

    Press Release

    DISA Mission Partner Conference, Tampa, FL - Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ: RIMM; TSX: RIM) today announced DoD-wide approval for the use of BlackBerry® 7 smartphones. Working with U.S. Army and Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) sponsors and partners, BlackBerry 7 smartphones have undergone successful testing through Army labs leading to a subsequent listing on DISA's Unified Communications Approved Product List (UCAPL).

    The approval allows all DoD customers to use the following BlackBerry 7 smartphones on DoD networks:


    • BlackBerry® Bold™ 9900 and 9930 (touch screen with keyboard)
    • BlackBerry® Torch™ 9810 (touch screen with slide out keyboard)
    • BlackBerry® Torch™ 9850 and 9860 (full screen touch screen)
    • BlackBerry® Curve™ 9360 (keyboard)


    “The Army introduced a wide range of new apps and capabilities for their BlackBerry users last year, and these new BlackBerry 7 smartphones will now enable Army users, and all DoD users, to experience an even greater level of performance on new smartphones that include features such as voice activated universal search, Near Field Communications, Augmented Reality, and Social Feeds 2.0 just to name a few,” said Scott Totzke, SVP, BlackBerry Security Group at RIM. “RIM’s unwavering focus on security and RIM's achievement of key security certifications including FIPS 140-2 validation and Common Criteria EAL4+ accreditation continue to be very important to many of our DoD and enterprise customers, but leveraging the full power of BlackBerry smartphones is also important as it helps them realize the full potential of their investment in the BlackBerry platform.”
