After weeks of waiting, Apple has finally joined the ranks of BlackBerry and Samsung in having its mobile phone hardware certified and approved for use on US military networks. The approval was always a sure thing, as the US Department of Defense had ordered tens of thousands of iPhones well before the approval process even began.

The Department of Defense says that it now has 470,000 BlackBerry devices, 41,000 Apple products, and 8,700 Android powered units in operation. The number of BlackBerry phones is expected to decline as the DoD says it will switch over to 100,000 new Apple and Android powered phones in the coming months.
