The aviation major Boeing is entering telecom market that has a feature unheard of so far. As if inspired by a detective, futuristic movie, Boeing’s black can destroy all its contents on attempts to open it forcibly. All communication over the phone is encrypted, giving corporations, governments and other privacy seeking users great relief. “The Boeing Black phone is manufactured as a sealed device both with epoxy around the casing and with screws, the heads of which are covered with tamper proof covering to identify attempted disassembly. Any attempt to break open the casing of the device would trigger functions that would delete the data and software contained within the device and make the device inoperable,” the company said.
Boeing is so far known as a flight, defense equipment maker only. This will be the company’s first foray into this zone.
The phone is slightly bigger than an iPhone, with 5.2 inch screen, runs on Google’s Android, the camera and other equipment specifications are not revealed by the company. As the phone comes with a unique software, the company is not revealing many details. The battery is definitely on the downside, with a 1590 mAh battery. A dual sim phone, Boeing Black can be customized based on individual customer requirements. Solar charging module is also included. The price and availability of the phone is not revealed.
