all the money still flows to america.. only a limited portion actually stays in china, and if they attempted to make the product in america they wud ironically probably make less money for america's economy

There is a problem with supply chain vulnerability for the iPhone. Until all of the internal chips of the iPhone are sourced outside of PRC, I don't think the iPhone is going to get FIPS certification.

This is really bad news for Blackberry. A sign that Android security can be trusted at higher level compared to Blackberry.

Which is delusional since Android has more security vulnerabilities(Carrier IQ lol) and malware threats than any OS. BB has higher level security. iOS is very secure.

gallitoking you chiken if we colide every android device into one device and release it every year with a minor upgrade iOS would have lost in 2010...wait it has lost it
also if someone counts all the sold android devices...lets just say that iJoke devices would have 10% of that number

Ok, of ALLLLLLLLLLL.... the Android phones in existance, the Pentagon had to pick the Dell Venue? No one knows nor cares about it and there are far better options

BB will always be tops when it comes to security, like it or not. I like that other platforms are being tested, but Android has more holes than swiss cheese.

more prove that android is not only for fun & daily :-)

WHY CHOOSE THE DELL Venue? They could of gotten the Galaxy Note which is better
