It turns out, the Pentagon is NOT coming to the rescue of Blackberry.
A report in The Verge a report from the US Department of Defence, suggested they were supporting 80 thousand of the waterloo-based smartphones.
But some, including many on the stock market, interpreted that as though the DoD was buying 80 thousand new phones.
That meant stock shot up over the course of the week, about $9 a share.
It turns out, that 80 thousand number, was the number of phones the Pentagon already had.
As a matter of fact, the Department of Defence told The Verge, that "absolutely no new orders have been placed for new BB devices."
