PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It's going to be a rough month for what was once one of the most successful smartphone companies in the world. Between all the Android and iOS violence, it's easy to forget there's this Canadian company which was still growing its userbase every month. However, it's expected the company will lose subscribers for the very first time.

So in summary:
* You say you posted an outdated article, although Wikipedia still claims the Dell Venue is the only allowed phone.

For all we know, Wikipedia was probably written based off that article.

* Government issued phones don't offer the user any personal security or privacy advantages, only disadvantages.

You're getting carried away with yourself now. You didn't even know about the Dell phones until today, much less know details about their security. So to make the claims you're now, you'd have to based them on 100% pure bias and paranoia.

I conclude it was another piece of anti-Apple FUD once again based on very dodgy logic and strange assumptions.

anti-apple or not. You can't then take an even more extreme view point with completely made up facts about a handset you've never seen and its intentions to spy on you to your employers. That's taking FUD to a whole new level!

Somewhere in this discussion there's a sane middle ground, but I fear we're beyond ever reaching it.
