AT&T receives BlackBerry Z10 demo units while BlackBerry 10 fails U.K. government security test

Just as AT&T prepares for the U.S. launch of the BlackBerry Z10, the U.K. government rejected the BlackBerry 10 OS for government work; while the previous version of the OS, BlackBerry 7.1, was able to get clearance for "Restricted" which is two levels below "Secret," it appears that BlackBerry Balance fails the same safety requirements...

This "article" has been updated by nearly all other media to be completely inaccurate. But the truth doesn't support the author's narrative.

Overpriced and epic fail.
BlackBerry keeps moving to your grave.

I like BB. If they die, this would be a big loss for all of us.
I wish them the best luck. But, I doubt they can survive.

Blackberry was in our office yesterday demoing off the Z10. I have to say I was rather impressed by it. It is really smooth. The Time Shift feature in the camera is pretty cool. The reason I believe they aren't being accepted by governments is because they ditched their old servers that were ridiculously secure. I don't think they'll take market share away anytime soon, but I think the new OS has a lot of potential after playing with it.

Alan F. and phoneArena -- perhaps you should have checked your source or with the UK government first before reporting this. (make your own link with three w's below). Title of article: "UK government dismisses BlackBerry 10 security blacklist rumours"
