BlackBerry has in the past been incredibly strong when it came to safety on smartphones, but the new BlackBerry 10 meetings headwind.
Since the BlackBerry at the end of January month launched their new BlackBerry 10-platform announcement was clear from many: it’s now or never, if it must be for the Canadian smartphone maker.
BlackBerry 10 is a bet from the company who hope their phones again will be interesting for the customers.

Since The Guardian wrote this article, they have had to withdraw it.

We have not yet performed an evaluation of the security of that platform, but we expect to be issuing rule Platform Guidance in the summer. ”
Therefore, there is therefore no question of the platform is not “sure enough”, but simply it is still so new that CESG has not yet gotten the evaluated fully.
The Ministry of Information with the German authorities have just announced earlier this month that they will buy BlackBerry Z10 to their 5,000 employees.
