BlackBerry 10 Tests Announced For U.S. Immigration Authorities
RIM (Research In Motion) has announced that the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will begin a pilot test of BlackBerry 10, the next generation of phones and operating system software from RIM, early next year.
Because of a long history of secure infrastructure, the U.S. government has been a major customer of BlackBerry devices and software for many years. In addition to new BlackBerry 10 phones, ICE will operate the new BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 management software as part of the pilot program.
BlackBerry 10 will launch officially worldwide on January 30, 2013.
