Boeing smartphone undergoes FCC testing

US: Boeing is all set to release its super-secure smartphone, the Boeing Company Black Smartphone. In a February 24 filing with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the company said the phone has undergone testing to meet FCC standards. However, it is keeping most details about the phone secret. The dual-SIM smartphone will use micro-SIM cards and will support GSM, WCDMA, and LTE.

In an effort to maintain permanent confidentiality, Boeing has followed FCC guidance and effectively sealed the device — disassembly would destroy the product. The Black is held together by both epoxy and tamper-proof screws, and any attempt to break open the casing would also trigger something akin to a self-destruct function, deleting the phone’s software and data and rendering it inoperable. The document also notes that the Black will be primarily marketed to government agencies and contractors in the defence and homeland security industries as a means of secure communication. The device will be sold in a way that technical and operational information will not be provided to the general public.
