BlackBerry 10 rejected by UK government - not secure enough

It turns out that Thorsten and company have overlooked a thing or two while designing the new BlackBerry 10 platform, which is currently available on the BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 smartphones...

It's really painful watching all this bad happen to blackberry. Even though I have yet to experience BB10, it must be just okay. Feel really bad for them :(

Blackberry is the most secure no matter what...Android allows all your info to be sent to google for marketing purposes so nothing is safe there

MS does the same thing. And its not all your info.
Check hotmail or outlook.com for ads...they will be based on search history and sites visited.

PA was so happy, so they decided to repost negative news about BB.

looks like windows phone is going to take the place of blackberry

No wonder Thorsten was critical of Apple the other day: iOS isn't just eating Blackberry's lunch, it is also eating their breakfast and dinner.

BB 10 is great, why the UK government reject it? I guess they don't even know what is "SECURE".

Translation: we want to go with a different OS.

hahah Thorsten...another reason your product sucks. Blackberry will fail soon and we will never ever have to hear from them again

Nicholas oliver is a complete loser who just happens to change user names.. but is obvious from his useless comments regarding any blackberry article
20. Ninetysix posted on 20 Mar 2013, 07:56 1
PA readers knows more than the UK government on what's secure and not secure. News at 11.

BB 10 may be great... but its a fact that they dont meet the security requirements... nothing more nothing less

Here's the official word from CESG on the matter:
"Discussions with BlackBerry are ongoing about the use of the BlackBerry 10 platform in government. We have not yet performed an evaluation of the security of that platform, but we expect to be issuing Platform Guidance in the summer. This will cover a number of platforms including Blackberry 10 (and the use of 'Balance'). We have a long standing security partnership with BlackBerry and this gives us confidence that the BlackBerry 10 platform is likely to represent a viable solution for UK Government."

Thank you. I read the same thing. The whole article on PA this time was a waste of a read.
28. renaissance posted on 20 Mar 2013, 09:54 1
I don't understand why so many people are so aggressive to platforms other than their own. From the customer point of view we all just win from competition. Stop writing stupid comments and provide some objective opinion.

This is false, Phone Arena please investigate good before posting information that is unaccurate
30. Stuntman posted on 20 Mar 2013, 13:26 1
I know with BB10, you split the phone in half. Half is personal and half is business. Part of this security is that it prevents your business from messing with the personal half of the phone and vice versa. A business can wipe the business half of the phone if for instance that person stopped working there. However, the personal side is safe from the business.

LOL this is very funny. But then this was part of the undoing of Blackberry- the lies that have always found their way onto sites such as this one.
33. DigitalJedi_X2 posted on 20 Mar 2013, 16:29 2
iPhonearena... Always so quick to down anything that's not Crappy Apple. This story is FALSE and The Guardian has backtracked on this statement---->http://m.crackberry.com/guardi
This site has printed a number of Blackberry stories that have turned out to be false. Please do your research guys and print retractions/updates when necessary.
34. ant55 posted on 20 Mar 2013, 17:20 2
Stop spreading lies phone arena. Your story is false and you have no credibility whatsoever. This story was refuted by the UK Govt. If you had a shred of decency or integrity you would print a retraction and apologize to Blackberry for posting this useless garbage. Thank god some of us here keep you honest.
39. GadgetsMcGoo posted on 20 Mar 2013, 22:48 1
LOLZ. Even iBGR took the time to correct their story in an update. These clowns here don't do their due diligence.... at all.

Had know idea that the government likes to use BB so much. Free instant messaging, I guess :).
