Boeing’s Android spyphone self-destructs

Boeing has been reported to have a smartphone that old school James Bond could have used. Codenamed “Black“, the Android-running smartphone has a special mechanism that self-destructs when opened by force, and will be sold only for government and security agents.

The aerospace and defense company filed documents for the Boeing Black smartphone (not to be confused with the privacy-focused Blackphone). As a safety precaution, the handset is sealed with epoxy around the casing and bolted with screws; tampering with the device or opening it in any way by force will prompt the Black to wipe the entire phone clean and make it stop functioning for good.

Since this is a “secret” device the company isn’t planning on releasing the full specs to the public. What’s more is that even the agents using it will have to sign a Purchase Agreement to keep silent about the phone’s specs, features, apps, and just about everything else (adding more to that secret agent feeling).

So far, the only information released is that it runs on Android, has dual-SIM functionality, supports GSM, WCDMA, and LTE while having connectivities for HDMI, USB, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.

    Check the article at GSMArena about the Boeing Black Spyphone for its specifications. Thank you.

    Aw, this was an extremely nice post. Spending
    some time and actual effort to generate a great article… but what can I say… I
    put things off a whole lot and don’t seem to get nearly anything done.

  6. Howdy! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?

    My weblog looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to
    fix this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share.
    Thanks!

  7. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your site?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  8. Attractive section of content. I just stumbled upon your blog and in accession capital
    to assert that I get actually enjoyed account your blog posts.
    Any way I will be subscribing to your feeds and even I achievement you access consistently rapidly.

    Spot on with this write-up, I seriously feel this site needs
    a great deal more attention. I’ll probably be back again to read more, thanks for the advice!

  10. bit.ly says:

    It’s an amazing article in support of all the web users; they will
    take advantage from it I am sure.

  11. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
