Always buying the latest smartphone but soon feel hard done by when others get the same phone only a few days or weeks later? Loose the warm fuzzy feeling of being the first?
Well here is a solution, just splash $15-20,000 and you will get a limited edition phone (we would imagine).
The National Defense magazine has said that aviation giant Boeing is developing an Android mobile phone system, its key selling point will be security.
Roger Krone, president of Boeing Network and Space Systems, told reporters in Arlington, Va., that this was probably the first time the aerospace and defense industry giant will offer a communication device designed to use cellular networks.
The company is near the end of the development cycle and getting ready to launch what he called “the Boeing phone” in late 2012, said Brian Palma, vice president of the company’s secure infrastructure group.
In fact the $20,000 is what the competition charge in terms of similar devices. Boeing are going to try and drive that price point down but not to mass market price point.
Boeing sees interest from the defence, intelligence and commercial world for such a device.
The phone will give the benefits of consumer Android phones but the added security that personnel will need.
