U.S. govt. has their own project to develop an Android-based replacement for the BB handsets. Without 100% control over the code development, there is no way to guarantee the security of the resulting software. It will be a cold day in Hell before the U.S. govt. trusts software developed by the Russian govt.

I don't know. If it is hack proof, I don't see why wouldn't the U.S. government thinking about using it. The relationship between the U.S. and Russia is completely different now. The U.S. funds Russia to help them to protect their nuclear weapons from any kind of threat.

OK, so I'm supposed to trust the Russians not to collect data about users? More like they think only they can collect that data.

So long as it's open source being "hack-proof" can only be for a limited time.

Immunix from Wirex claimed to be "Hack(er) Proof" distribution of linux was back in early 2000. Company closed and Immunix was bought over by Suse Linux. Nothing is hack-proof. Pulling the power chord (or battery) off from socket is best security :)

So they hacked Android to send them the user info instead of Google.
