It is expected that RIM will offer tablets to federal workers at discounted rates and impose the restriction of only one tablet per worker. RIM is offering close to 3,000 apps to the end users on its dedicated app store. The number will soon scoot up to 10,000 apps and considering the Fed governments recent deeds the gadget maker will be looking to boost the utility through app support on the go.
