This is great news for BlackBerry, the German government will be implementing the new Z10. According the report the Germans plan to acquire 5000 Z10`s for use in “other secret sources in ministries and federal agencies” due to its impressive security features.
"It's reported that the Düsseldorf Secusmart security specialist and T-Systems have secured the deal via the Procurement Office of the Ministry of the Interior and the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) for all communication for the German government. Clearly BlackBerry has always been renowned for offering the most secure mobile data solution and with the recent launch of BlackBerry 10 it looks like that isn't going to change anytime soon.
In addition to the Secusmart software on board the German Z10's - users will also benefit from BlackBerry Balance which will give them the freedom to still use applications of their choice, such as Facebook and Twitter, but with the I.T. department still having full control over the top secret stuff. This could maybe be the perfect example of how the partition between work and personal apps is utilised with BlackBerry Balance."
great news for BlackBerry, this is exactly the type of high profile client acquisition news they need.
