    • Leont68: I did not see any mention about windows phone. But put Windows 8 in front of 2 million people within the DoD will surely be beneficial

    • Leont68: And not to mention all the contractors working with DoD, they will have to upgrade to ensure compatibility with DoD's IT infrastructure.

    • Seppo Sahrakorpi: More important than the 2M number and resulting direct WP8 sales is the DoD 'endorsement'. Win8 is secure, giving WP8 good ammo against BB

    • turtledividend: Looking forward for BB10 news. 1 phone, 1 chance and 1 direction. Live or die, so overwhelming to be a RIMM shareholder.

    • Mr. Knowitall: " DoD 'endorsement'. " <== this If it's secure enough for the government, it's secure enough for the enterprise.
