Finally, a cell phone truly worthy of James Bond is ready for sale. Unfortunately, you can't have one, unless you are a government agent or diplomat. The new phones, developed by Boeing, are designed to be wholly secure providing encrypted communications, a tamper resistant design, and will self destruct if anyone tries to open the device.
Codenamed Black, the Boeing smartphone is tamper resistant and will delete all its own data if someone tries to pry open the case.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Boeing has developed a smartphone codenamed "Black" that may be the most secure communications device on the planet. Running on android, the phone is designed to encrypt communications, can work on multiple networks, and is tamper-proof. Any attempt to tamper with the device will render it useless, deleting all of the data on the phone.
One of the key techniques in the spy game is to intercept communications. Indeed, this tactic has been quintessential to spying and has been a staple of spycraft throughout all of recorded history. So a good spy agency needs to take measures to secure their communications so information can be exchanged without prying eyes and ears tapping in.
The Boeing smartphone encrypts communications, so intercepting communications from it would be useless anyway.
Another key feature is the phone's tamper-resistant case. According to Boeing, any attempt to open the case or to tamper with the parts inside will cause the phone to self-destruct by deleting all data stored inside. The phone contains no serviceable parts, so there is no need for a legitimate user to open the case anyway.
For those hoping to get their hands on this phone, you will need to get a high-level government job first because the phones will only be provided to the government for use by select agents and officials. It is expected that spies and diplomats will be among the first to use the devices.
According to Boeing, "Boeing's Black 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."
Boeing is not releasing many technical details of the device either.
"The device will be marketed and sold in a manner such that low level technical and operational information about the product will not be provided to the general public. Detailed technical information distributed at trade shows will be limited or protected by non-disclosure agreements."
It is known that the phones will come with two SIM cards, which will allow the phones to use multiple networks.
The phones will be phased into use over the next few years and will first be sold to the government and high-level contractors.
