RIM’s PlayBook first to be certified by US Government

I picked this one up via Mobileburn — some organisations simply cannot afford to dance around with the iPad given the myriad of very real security concerns with it. That’s why there will always be some demand for a super-secure tablet such as the PlayBook:

The Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 certification means that the PlayBook is secure enough for government use. Of course, not having any standalone communications apps certainly might help the PlayBook get that certification.

via Mobileburn: BlackBerry PlayBook is first tablet certified by the feds.
