We carry out IT security testing on mobile devices and I can assure you that from a security viewpoint Balckberry is ahead of most players. In order of security with 1 being the most secure blackberry has the least vulnerabilities with the lowest attack surface. Android has the most exploits with the greatest attack surface.
1. Blackberry 10.2 OS on Z10, Q10, Q5
2. Windows Mobile 8.0 (Nokia Hardware)
3. Apple iOS 7
4. Samsung Knox (Hardened Android)
5. Android 4.1 and later on Samsung, HTC hardware.
LovesTKD, 25 Jan 2014we've had the z10 for 11 months and love, love, love it. My work is switching to the Q10 in t... morewhat other devices have you used to compare those bbries to? Anyone I spke with about new bbries swear that they are garbage!
Why on earth would any Government, Bureaucracy or sensitive business utilise an Android device. Are you stupid.
we've had the z10 for 11 months and love, love, love it. My work is switching to the Q10 in the spring, but I am hoping for a z30. Love the z10 so I am sure I will love the z30. No issues at all with it, they aren't going anywhere as almost all G7 governments use Blackberry and nothing else is a secure....plain and simple.
my stupidity, 24 Jan 2014Im one of those many people who wants to buy a BBRY Z10 phone but I'm afraid that BB will die ... moreBBRY already had history of unsupported devices. Remember BB Playbook? Earlier CEO, TH, had promised many times OS10 update to Playbook. But later, the same product was discontinued with no further updates, forget OS10. Z10 was launched at insane price & flopped all over the world. Z10 was written off by BB long ago; Z30 is on the way. Q5, being budget handset, was launched at insane price. For sure, BB will die in a couple of months leaving all the devices unsupported.

Too bad for BB.
The shares went up to $10 so... anybody heard of something called speculation :P Comon BB, sell your soul to M$ so windows phone grows faster as an alternative to ios and android, the world needs it.
Kashifnawaz85, 24 Jan 2014DoD should buy Nokia Lumia devices.Why because you have one?
Everybody knows BBRY is dying platform. US DoD won't waste their money on BBRY. The news was just for publicity.
who cares about blackberry after all? As they stop supporting their old phones!
