Just like in a James Bond or Mission Impossible movie, Boeing and Blackberry are working together to develop a smartphone that self-destructs if tampered with. This new phone is based on Boeing’s Android-based high security smartphone and is geared towards the security and defense communities. The Blackphone will encrypt calls to other supporting phones utilizing the BES 12 platform (BlackBerry Enterprise Service). These secure calls will support other devices such as Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS.
Also supported in the phone are dual SIM cards to access multiple cell provider networks. They are also incorporating the ability for satellite communication and biometric sensors.
It should be noted that this isn’t going to explode or burn, but rather all data on the phone will be erased.
