German Government Goes All in on BlackBerry Z10 With 5,000 Device Orders

CeBit_ Angela Merkel is testing her new super-phone - computer

I am just getting back from Poland (via Germany) to the US and it looks like we have some good news from the east. Thorsten Heins received a stamp of approval in his home country through the German government. The German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) just approved a deal for the government to purchase 5,000 BlackBerry Z10s for employees. They will be using a cryptocard solution using Secusmart to bring secure voice a text messaging. via AllThingsD & Bild.de

  1. hmmm , interesting , go Blackberry ! And where were the Lumias on this one lol ?

  2. Hmm.. BSI,BIS!

  3. I wouldn’t say all in, as the other half of the order is for Samsung Galaxy Android phones…

  4. This article is VERY IMPARTIAL, please note that the German Government ALSO went with 5,000 Samsung Galaxies.

    So, the German government did NOT go all in with Blackberry.

    • I think you may have been trying to say that we are not impartial? I Just saw in another article them mentioning that it will be also ordering Samsung Galaxy S3 and S2. On the other hand the big win is that the german government can now use it for classified data since it no longer goes through the BlackBerry NOC.

  5. Well flip side to all this, that’s 10,000 iPhones not sold! LOL :)

  6. I switched from Iphone 4S to Blackberry Z10. It is very fast and very easy to use. I like the BB Balance and the Hub. texting is fun and easier than Iphone. The browser is very good. BBM is the best of all with video.

  7. BB 10 is a Unix base Operating system which is called BBX “Virus FREE”.It is a real time O/S. Iphone doesn’t even come close to it. I hope Blackberry would make water resist phones as well. There is a big demand for it.
