What are the two items below?

Dual band 800/1900 MHZ CDMA 2000 1X EV-DO networks

Security - FIPS Validation

Why isn't it available for the 9700 Bold2?

Does anyone know?

The first is your network type. the second is a bit more detailed but here is some info.

Keeping data confidential
Maintaining the integrity of enterprise applications requires rigorous attention to security. The BlackBerry solution incorporates some of the most stringent security measures in the industry for maintaining information integrity and confidentiality. Handhelds have received the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140 validation, which signifies adherence to strict government security standards. Using end-to-end Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) or Triple Data Encryption Standard (DES) encryption, data remains encrypted at all points between the handheld and the BlackBerry Enterprise Server. For organizations that already use Secure Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME) to protect data, the BlackBerry solution offers optional support for this security standard.
To help further protect the confidentiality of the information stored on the handheld, all user data (for example, messages, contacts, memos, and tasks) can be encrypted locally on the handheld using password protection. You can control local encryption and set and enforce other security policies, such as mandatory passwords and password configuration. If the handheld is lost or stolen, you can also lock the handheld wirelessly or erase its information.

Awesome, thanks for the information and thanks for the welcoming.

Now question, how come the FIPS 140 isn't available onto the 9700? Does it have an equivalent security measure? Can I install FIPS 140 onto the 9700?

From reading that, it appears it will show once actiavted on a BES with the correct conditions for it.
Its not something that appears unless on a BES with it.
