    Yeah because that wouldn't make any sense at all right?

    Not if one tends to believe that BlackBerry is a poisoned brand, which some tend to believe.

    My first guess was BlackOps too, but I can see where some folks would assume they are stealing BBRY's identity, thin as that is.

    BlackBerry needs to put out an ad calling itself "the original Black Phone". Just to remind people of its existence.

    Black has always been used to designate covert or secret programmes. Particularly in the US, and particularly in aerospace. Lockheed's skunkworks is full of black projects. It has nothing to do with BB.

    Why is every phone that tries to focus on security try to jump on BlackBerry's nuts and start their name with Black? Rather funny if you ask me. Let the OG Black be tho.

    "Should have bought BlackBerry"

    That would have made sense AND the government likely would have allowed it.

    Side note, aircraft aluminum BlackBerry anyone?

    Well I could see Boeing getting the entire US Federal Government switched over to these things, especially during an upcoming election cycle. Boeing is American and Part of the US Military-Industrial complex, and they have a ton of money to grease the gears of Washington. What surprises me, is if they really wanted to do this, why didn't they just buy Blackberry.
    I'm wondering the same thing.

    Stop. You know they stole BlackBerry name. Just like Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones did because "Men In Dark Suits" just didn't cut it.

    Lol. It was a joke. I just found it funny all the security based phones have black in the name. They aren't obligated to explain it and neither is anyone here. Boeing coming out with a secure phone is a big deal though and should be taken seriously by BlackBerry. There are now more than a few companies doing so. It doesn't change much though. Since BlackBerry has been focusing on this aspect of their business already with Chen. Let's just hope they can keep their momentum.

    Without getting into the "did they rip it off" - this sort of thing is actionable - see how Skydrive has become OneDrive because Sky TV sued Microsoft over possible passing off.

    I find it weird how all the secure phones have the word 'Black' in them. BlackBerry, Blackphone, and now Black. Anyways I wouldn't consider a phone able to be hacked as secure but due to it being able to self-distruct I guess it could be labeled as secure. Also didn't the NATO order BB10 devices to ummm... I don't know... ticker with?

    BlackBerry does not do classified comms. If this is truly classified (haven't seen any FIPS let alone suite B approvals) then it is to take over the space all but vacated by the Sectera Edge and other SMEPED devices.

    The secure part is the self-distruction part if hacked.

    The more I read about it the more it seems like a SMEPED replacement. Sat comms, multiple networks, encrypted voice. All elements of the Sectera Edge.

    Also Iridium might need to watch out if this can access Fed Gov satellite networks. It also has to be made in country to even be looked at for Sat comms.

    The same government that is currently suing them for moving some of their operations into 'right to work' states?

    I always think it's funny that things like that matter. Apple has repeatedly handed Samsung their A$$ in court. Yet samsung maintains their billion-dollar contracts to supply parts for Apple.

    Business is business.
