New Boeing Cell Phone Can Self-Destruct
by Haylee Fisher
In a move that would make James Bond proud, Boeing has announced the creation of a new cell phone that can self-destruct.
Yes, the same Boeing that makes fighter jets, airplanes, and satellites is looking to get into the smartphone business. The phone, simply called Black, has been designed with US defense agencies and security communities in mind and will self-destruct if tampered with, destroying its data and rendering the device inoperable.
Few details have been revealed, but what is known is the phone will run on an Android operating system and contain encrypted storage for sensitive data. A few stats include a dual-core 1.2 GHz ARM Cortex A9-based processor, 4.3-inch qHD screen, 540 x 960 resolution display, and will support Bluetooth 2.1 enhanced data rate connections. Additionally, the phone’s hardware can be expanded to include biometric sensors, satellite receivers or solar panels.
This new device took 36 months to produce. No word yet on how much it will cost or when it will be available for purchase.
