Boeing has revelead something we don’t normally see them doing; a smartphone. The Boeing Black is a super secure smartphone, designed specially for government buyers keeping security in mind as a priority.

The Boeing Black smartphone was designed with security and modularity in mind to ensure customers can use the same smartphone without worrying about their data being secure, which is a major concern these days. These are the main features:

  • Android™ Operating System: Convenient smartphone for Android usage
  • Disk Encryption: Encrypted storage for sensitive data
  • Hardware Root of Trust: Ensures software authenticity
  • Hardware Crypto Engine: Protects stored and transmitted data
  • Embedded Secure Components: Enables trusted operations
  • Trusted Platform Modules: Provides secure key storage
  • Secure Boot: Maintains device image integrity
  • Hardware Modularity: Endless modularity capabilities

In terms of specs, it’s got a 1.2GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor, PDMI port, microSD slot, 4.3 inch screen and the modularity feature, which lets you switch the back cover with all sorts of modules including solar charger, satelite radio transceivers, GPS receiver, extended battery packs and much more.

Many have said Boeing’s name, the “Black phone” was done to resemble the name “BlackBerry” since security is their primary goal. Now, we’re not saying BlackBerry should be worried about this device taking over the enterprise world, but it’s definitely interesting to see more players getting in on the action this year.
