Boeing makes smartphones? At least just one really cool one:
It’s the smartphone every “Mission Impossible” fan would love to have.
Boeing is set to debut a new secure phone for government agencies and defense contractors that will self-destruct if it’s tampered with. It just won’t be won’t be quite as dramatic as it was on the old television show. There won’t be any smoke or explosions, but the contents of the device will be completely erased.
“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,” explained a company filing with the Federal Communications Commission, posted on the FCC’s Web site Wednesday.
I can promise you this thing would sell better if they’d add the smoke.
