Blackberry is working with Boeing on Boeing’s smart phone , the Canadian based mobile company confirmed on Friday. The Boeing Black smartphone which is developed by the Chicago based aerospace and defence contractor confirmed that the phone will self-destruct if it is tampered with.The Boeing Black device encrypts calls and is aimed at government agencies and others that need to keep communications and data secure.
We’re pleased to announce that Boeing is collaborating with BlackBerry to provide a secure mobile solution for Android devices utilizing our BES 12 platform
Blackberry CEO John Chen confirmed this in a conference on Friday
The Boeing phone uses dual SIM cards to enable it to access multiple cell networks and can be configured to connect with biometric sensors and satellites. Boeing has begun offering the phone to potential customers.
BlackBerry is known for its corporate smartphones and security of its emailing system. It will be interesting to see what this collaboration results in. In our opinion, if Boeing truly wants to create a secure phone, they should be working on their own OS instead of using Android at the core. Android has never been known for its secure nature. Just a thought.
