The Self-Destructible Phone

Boeing has just announced the making of a self-destructing phone. With so many phones being lost, stolen and misplaced security of one's personal content stored in their phone is a must! The "Boeing Black" will be the first phone to have the ability of protecting all of your personal data from strangers. This phone is being made specifically for government agencies and defense contractors. 


According to the company, "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." It doesn't sound all that "destructive" but it does claim to do more good than the iPhone's "Find My iPhone" system, which allows you to delete the contents of your phone via a wireless signal. The main difference here is that the phone "destroys" itself without you needing to take action, whereas with the iPhone app, "deleting the phone" isn't always guaranteed as someone can easily surpass that security feature and continue using the phone without you even knowing. 

The phone is said to operate with Google's Android system and have encrypted stored data and phone calls. More details about the phone are being kept secret, as the device is strictly being targeted to the government and its agencies. Release date and price of the phone are still unknown. The dimensions are to be measuring 5.2 by 2.7 inches, just a little bit bigger than the iPhone. Other cool features include the ability to connect with satellites, biometric sensors and run on solar power with an attachment. The phone has been in development for 36 months already and marks an expansion into the communications division for Boeing. Whether you get your hands on one of these or not, a Juno Power battery never did any harm to a smartphone.
