I think you subconsciously listed them in the correct order...

As a one time SeaBee I can say the best part of it all is they'll be doing it with equipment that was "acquired" from the Army.
Just say no to MacMall.  They don't honor their promotions and won't respond to customer inquiries.  There are better retailers out there.

Er, go read Apple's iOS corporate pages - companies can create and distribute their own apps internally without relying on iTunes or Apple's blessing

I'm sure Apple would allow the military to have their own marketplace if and when it's needed

Your right - because any business can do it today! But hey, I realize that's no where near as fun as "Apple is mean and controlling"

but as of right now the Army has been choosing Android as their chosen platform for a lot of their projects, mostly do to MITRE making the decision.

I'm sure there will be plenty of iOS and Android devices. Windows Phone? Perhaps some...

That would be cool though, I would love to get my hands on a iPad that has a MIL rating.

We have resellers that are Apple-authorized to open iPhones and iPads, do things like embed RFID tracking, re-assemble and maintain the Apple warranty. I'm sure there is at least one - if not multiple - vendors working on modifying iPhones or iPads to be ruggedized - especially with the growing interest in iOS devices.

Oh cool, I want one then. Would you happen to have a name of a company who makes such modifications.

I still wish that company that used to make tablets from Macbooks was still around. I would love to have Macbook Air tablet. I have already modified my Macbook Air's screen for touch but I would love it more if it was a convertable like my Lenovo x220.
