The mobile revolution isn't new to many agencies. Laptops and BlackBerrys have been standard issue for many government executives for the last decade. What is different, however, is the widespread use of smartphones and tablet computers. Both agencies and citizens hold new and more immediate expectations because of these devices, and the government must adapt to this technololgy. In our special report, Gov 3.0: It's Mobile, Federal News Radio explores how some agencies are meeting the demand internally and externally for mobile devices and apps. The challenge, like any new technology, is ensuring these devices actually help meet mission goals and don't become just another shiny toy.

Federal News Radio surveyed 28 agencies on whether they have a formal mobile policy and whether it includes the idea of letting employees bring-their-own devices to work. We heard back from 21 of them, many providing more details on the status of their efforts. The results: Nearly every agency has or is developing a mobile policy and most also are considering a Bring-Your-Own-Device strategy.
