re: RIM BlackBerry 10 Gets Government Security Clearance
Eric Z always has a Microsoft or Blackberry product failing or being late to market. Take his articles as opinion more than facts. In general, usually a negative or downer tone in his writings, laced with few important details you can really believe in, and as many hard to take seriously.

re: RIM BlackBerry 10 Gets Government Security Clearance
Thanks for your feedback, but I have to disagree. I've spoken directly to wireless network operators many times about their certification process. They consistently tell me 120 to 160 days to certify devices.

Yes, RIM has always said Q1, but I have doubts they'll make it. Carrier testing isn't the only hurdle BB10 has to clear before devices go on sale. At best, carriers will clear the devices to run in early February. They still have to pass FCC testing. I suggested April in my story because I am not confident RIM can meet its stated goals. Not meant to be a fact, just a pragmatic view of RIM's progress.

re: RIM BlackBerry 10 Gets Government Security Clearance
A few errors in your story:

1 RIM has alsways stated that product will launch 1st Quarter 2013. You indicated March.....and it could be as early Jan or Feb. They have never stated April.

2.Carrier testing takes 60-90 days (2-3 months...not 3-4 months).

RIM is set to make a comeback with BB10.
