In a time of government spying, big companies using your personal data and hacker organizations breaking into any database, Boeing has announced a new Android handset with security and modular design in mind.


The Boeing Black seems like the kind of phone James Bond would use, sporting features such as disk encryption, hardware root of trust, hardware crypto engine, embedded secure components, trusted platform modules as well as secure boot to safeguard your data.

Both the hardware and software of this phone are built up almost entirely for securely storing and transmitting data, which makes it quite useful to government officials, but should be quite popular among hackers and even terrorists as well. Another strong suite is the phone’s unique ability to delete the data if it detects that someone is trying to break open the casing.

It also has a somewhat modular design, meaning that you can remove the back cover and attach all sorts of modules such as extended battery, satellite transceivers, advanced location tracking sensors, and so on.

Obviously, apart from the security aspect, the specifications sheetof the Boeing Black isn’t all that impressive – a 4.3-inch, qHD display, 1.2GHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 CPU, microSD card slot, dual-SIM support, Bluetooth v2.1 + EDR, 1590mAh battery and an unspecified version of Android.

There are no details regarding pricing or availability, but count on us to keep you posted.
