    A U.S. federal agency is set to trial Research In Motion Ltd.’s new BlackBerry 10 smartphone after recently ditching the brand in favour of Apple Inc’s iPhone, in a boost for the embattled Canadian company.

    The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE), will begin early next year a pilot program on RIM’s new line of BlackBerry 10 phones and BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 (BES 10), which allows firms and government agencies to run the new devices on their networks, an RIM spokeswoman said late on Wednesday.

    Whatever happened to that iPhone rollout, anyways?
    Everyone was making such a big fuss about it.

    Maybe ICE figured out Al Qaeda was eavesdropping on their "secure" Apple devices. No government agency abandons the only secure mobile communications platform for Angry Birds and Friends.

    That award went through.
    They were heavy requirements for biometrics apps. That would be a heavy field component.
    This pilot would be a new effort. I just looked through contracting efforts and didn't find it.
    If the pilot is implemented we (my agency) can stop worrying about iOS coming behind the firewalls. And I won't lose my job by stopping my agency's request for information from being published.

    I would be VERY VERY interested in seeing how they implemented field iOS.
