American multinational aerospace and defense corporation, Boeing, has just recently announced plans for the manufacture of a high security Android device for their military and government personnel. This will be the company’s first time to offer a communications device that will function from the use of cellular networks. Boeing has stated that the company recognizes that mobile technology is the future and they want to provide more secure options for their employees rather than restrict them with limited mobile capabilities.
Vice President of Boeing’s secure infrastructure group, Brian Palma, told reporters that “this is why an Android-based system was chosen. The users of these high-end phones want the same ability to use popular applications while knowing that their business communications are secure. The phone will give them what they are used to seeing (on consumer market smartphones) and give them the functionality from the security perspective“.
The price of similar encrypted phones from competitor manufacturers are astronomical, however Boeing aims to keep their price much lower and more affordable in hopes of becoming the more financially wise choice.
