"We are not dumping BlackBerry (BBRY +2.1%) as Electronista and others have indicated," says a DoD spokesman. "We're moving to multiple devices, and that includes BlackBerry." The spokesman doesn't appear to confirm or deny the part of Electronista's report that mentions an order for 650K iOS (AAPL) devices will be placed. The DoD currently deploys 470K BlackBerrys to go with 41K iOS and 8.7K Android devices. Update: Electronista's sources continue to insist the iOS order is on tap, pending the end of the sequester.
