    From a BlackBerry spokesperson:

    Our work with the U.S. Department of Defense is going well and the U.S. Department of Defense is moving forward with testing of BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10 and the new BlackBerry Z10 smartphone. We are currently working with the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) and anticipate Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIG) and Security Requirement Guide (SRG) approval for the BlackBerry Device Service, BlackBerry 10 and BlackBerry PlayBook by early April. BlackBerry was the first to go through the new SRG process by the Defense Department and will be the first to successfully come out of it.

    Who would want a Playbook with OS 2.1??? So there you have it.

    I read that just today and thought that too. I wouldn't get my hopes up, but that could mean there is a chance for it. It could mean both BB10 and QNX (until it becomes BB10) are being tested.

    Here is the link to the article (or at least the article that I found with that quote): BlackBerry On The Defensive, Says BB10 And PlayBook Getting Approved By The DoD In April | TechCrunch

    That's a liberal read of that. I read it as approval on three distinct aspects of BlackBerry's offering.
