Smartphone that 'self-destructs' itself if tampered

Darpan News Desk IANS, 21 Dec, 2014 12:32 PM
  • Smartphone that 'self-destructs' itself if tampered
Boeing and BlackBerry are reportedly developing a smartphone that will self-destruct itself if someone tampers with the device.
 
The Boeing Black phone has a unique tamper-proof covering that will erase data if it is disassembled, the Verge reported.
 
It will also have dual SIM cards and an expandable back panel for biometric scanners and satellite transceivers to be able to connect to satellites for secure lines of communication.
 
According to BlackBerry CEO John Chen, the company is collaborating with the defence contractor to bake its end-to-end BES 12 platform into the long-gestating Android device.
 
Although the phone may earlier cater to governments in the first place, similar "self-destructing" devices will eventually come to the consumer level, the report added.
