We told you before that the Pentagon was rolling out their new mobile initiative with 98% of the devices being BlackBerrys. It turns out that there is a little caveat there. These are not new BlackBerry devices according to a statement made by the Pentagon to The Verge. They actually went as far to state that :
Absolutely no new orders have been placed for new BB devices. The DISA press release put out Jan. 16 never alluded to any devices being purchased. The 80,000 BBs and 1,800 non-BB devices referenced in the release are legacy systems already in DoD inventories.
Either way 80,000 devices is not a gamebreaker but its nice to see the DoD is sticking with BlackBerry for now.
