Boeing Black-Self-Destructing Spy Phone by Blackberry and Boeing..!
Boeing Black-Spy Phone
Boeing has teamed up with BlackBerry on a secretive & self-destructing smartphone. This Self-Destructing Spy Phone is being developed for use by U.S. defense and homeland security employees and contractors specially.
“We’re pleased to announce that Boeing is collaborating with BlackBerry to provide a secure mobile solution for Android devices utilizing our BES12 platform,” John Chen, chairman and chief executive officer of Waterloo, Ontario-based BlackBerry, said during an earnings .
This self destructive Spy Phone is known as the Boeing Black-Spy Phone. Boeing Black is being tested with BlackBerry’s main business enterprise server product, known as BES, which provides software that allows large corporations and government departments to keep track of their employees’ devices. The server is compatible with Android and iPhone handsets.
“Boeing has decades of experience providing defense and security customers with secure communications” . “We are working with BlackBerry to help them ensure the BES12 operating system is compatible with, and optimized for use by, the ultra-secure mobile devices favored by the defense and security community.”
Boeing has released few details about the inner-workings of the phone, which it says in a brochure “was designed with security and modularity in mind.”
While the Boeing Black may look like a thicker cousin to other widely used Android devices, it’s packed with features out of a John le Carre novel, including triggers that can cause the handset to self-destruct.
The phone is manufactured as a sealed device with epoxy around its casing and screws and a tamper-proof covering over the screw-heads “to identify attempted disassembly,” Bruce Olcott, outside counsel to Boeing, said in a Feb. 24 letter to the Federal Communications Commission requesting that confidential design details be kept under wraps.
“Any attempt to break open the casing of the device would trigger functions that would delete the data and software contained within the device and make the device inoperable,” Olcott wrote.
The Boeing Black has two SIM cards instead of the one that’s standard on other mobile phones, so users can switch between government and commercial networks, according to a product description on the aerospace company’s website. There’s also a “modular expansion port,” which allows users to connect to satellites or expand the phone’s power capacity.
