If there was ever a phone fit for James Bond in the real world, it would be Boeing’s new mobile phone. The smartphone has an amazing feature, which is, that it self-destructs if tampered with or if someone trys to violate its security. The phone has been named “Black”
Boeing’s counsel Bruce Olcott said that the phone “will be sold primarily to government agencies and companies engaged in contractual activities with those agencies that are related to defense and homeland security. The device will be marketed and sold in a manner that low-level technical and operational information about the product will not be provided to the general public.”
A self-destructing phone is probably the last thing anyone would expect from a company that builds airplanes. But Boeing’s Android smartphone is here and apparently it will only be sold to government agencies. The phone doesn’t self-destruct in the same way as most gadgets do in the movies, it simply erases all the data and the software on the phone. Though there have been hard drives and microchips that can do this, it is the first time that this feature is available on something that is used on a daily basis.
The phone has Dual SIM cards, a removable battery, WiFi, Bluetooth and can operate on GSM, WCDMA and LTE networks. That’s pretty much the only specifications that has been released about this conservative phone. All that matter is that it’s called Black and it’s a phone that shouldn’t be messed with.
