Samsung Delays Release of Security Software for Galaxy Phones
By BRIAN X. CHEN
In February, Samsung Electronics introduced Knox, a version of Android with security features to make the company's phones more suitable for businesses, expected for release this spring. But the company has delayed the release of the software until summer, according to two people briefed on the company's plans.
Samsung initially said Knox would launch on the Galaxy S4, which is to arrive in AT&T stores on Saturday. But two people working with Samsung on Knox, who asked not to be named because they were not authorized to speak about their relationships with the company, said Samsung had decided to delay the release because it needed more time to test the software internally and with carriers. Samsung informed one of these people that Knox would be out around July.
Knox is expected to ship on some Samsung Galaxy devices. Analysts say the software puts Samsung, the leading manufacturer of Android devices, in a position to replace BlackBerry as the phone for professionals.
Samsung's spokespeople confirmed that a full version of Knox would not be available until a later date.
"All the Knox framework components come standard on the device, with full-feature activation by solution providers and distribution channels to become available at a later date," the company said in a statement.
