Windows Mobile an approved standard for Department of Defense

While CTIA was very exciting (read my summary positing here), there are some other very cool news:

We hit a great milestone by the official approval for use of Windows Mobile for wireless e-mail throughout the Department of Defense, through DISA/STIG certification. The first release of this solution combines a CAC reader and software from Trust Digital and Palm Treo 750 devices , however work is being done to add new devices very quickly. Trust Digital has issued a press release with some details. This DISA/STIG certifcation will accelerate adoption of Windows Mobile in large numbers across all offices in the Department of Defense.
