Boeing designs self-destructing smartphone

|About: The Boeing Company (BA)|By:, SA News Editor

Boeing (BA) has unveiled an Android-based secure smartphone for defense and security customers that, in shades of "Mission Impossible," will effectively self-destruct if anybody tries to tamper with it - attempts to open the casing will result in the deletion of all data and will make the device inoperable.

The Boeing Black will presumably compete with BlackBerry (BBRY), which is the leader in the market for high-security mobile devices.
