The DOD has approved the use of BB10 phones and tablets on its networks, BlackBerry (BBRY) announces. The statement comes a couple days after the WSJ reported the DOD will sign off on the use of iPhones and iPads, as well as Samsung Galaxy phones. In March, Electronista reported an order is on tap for 650K iOS devices that will replace 470K BlackBerrys; the DOD denied the part about dumping BlackBerry, but didn't confirm or deny the part about the iOS orders.  (PR)
