    iPhone I think. They are almost as secure as BlackBerry but more popular.
    But... but... iPhones are made in 'gina!

    I read on line a few minutes ago that President Trump had handed over is Android phone for a more secure cell phone but it did not mention what the new phone was. Any ideas??

    My Best Guesses would have to be the following device.

    1. Any Blackberry Android Device (PRIV , DTEK50, DTEK60)
    2. Blackphone 2
    3. Turing Phone
    4. Solarin

    Obama used both a BB and an Apple at the same time. The Apple was strictly for personal use and was fitted with voice and text encryption, NO government use was allowed. BB was all business.
    I read an article about Obama's blackberry several years ago. Its internals were rebuilt by the NSA. I think they do the same with an iPhone now.

    Trump uses an old Galaxy to tweet anyway so he'll be right at home.
    About that DISA app store: Pentagon App Store Is Open, but the Shelves Are Pretty Bare - Nextgov.com

    The Defense Information Systems Agency’s new Mobile Applications Store is open for business, but don’t expect to shop there for military-grade killer software.

    The store offers Slate, Pandora, TED and Twitter apps, along with apps for USAToday, Flipboard, Facebook and Kindle.

    Yeah, the NSA physically built in voice encryption rather than use 3rd party software.

    It will be something special not available to public. Made by general dynamics usually. He will also probably get a severely locked down iphone.
    Yep the military industrial complex has to be involved in picking the pockets of taxpayers.

    Actually with his popularly at the moment perhaps him using a iPhone is a good thing. Trump using a BlackBerry would be another nail in BlackBerry's coffin.

    He is quite popular. That's how he won the election.

    He should be using a Blackberry Passport now that it finally passed NIAP certification or at the very least, a Blackberry Android device. Don't know why they would bother to extensively modify a Samsung device to secure it when much of the work has already be done on a Blackberry device.

    I apologize to the mod that deleted my post. I was simply posting a numerical fact and not trying to incite a political argument. I enjoy the forums and have been a longtime contributor.

    I believe they have a custom modem / radio chip as well, that's what I remember was the big thing with the NSA.

    I say give him a Note 7, but require him to keep it in his front pocket and sleep with it under his pillow.

    Maybe he has a Turing phone now. That's super secure and locked down.

    The Guide is definitive. Reality is frequently inaccurate.

    Several Android devices received NIAP certification well before BlackBerry, including Samsung with Knox. BB10 is again too late to the market. I don't know of any US Fed Agency using BB10. Some still have some BBOS but they are slowly being retired.

    BTW iOS also has NIAP certification.

    The phone was extensively different from any commercial phone (see Blaze's post). Also, the President's device works on a very private network.

    Whoever locks down his phone, it will be programmed to explode when he dials Putin's number.

    As with any president, you can bet it's a heavily locked down device and on a very secured network as it should be.
