/// Samsung and BlackBerry Cleared for Pentagon Work
Samsung and BlackBerry are good enough for government work. Late Thursday, the U.S. Department of Defense granted security approvals to BlackBerry’s new BlackBerry 10 devices — the Z10 and Q10, and to a version of Samsung’s Galaxy S4 that’s outfitted with Knox, the company’s new security software. Though DOD approval won’t result in immediate product orders for either company, it does clear the way for orders to be placed in the future. Good news, since the Pentagon currently has some 600,000 mobile device users.
