The U.S. Department of Defense will open its networks to smartphones and tablets from Apple and Android device manufacturers beginning in February of 2014, reports "AppleInsider" (www.appleinsider.com).
One component of the DoD's plan will be to move away from its current BlackBerry standard and toward a more "platform agnostic" policy, integrating devices running Apple's iOS as well as Google's Android operating system. A DoD representative told "AppleInsider" that this does not mean a full abandonment of BlackBerry's platform, as was the case with other large organizations such as Home Depot.
