0. phoneArena 27 Mar 2014, 21:27 posted on

Has the Cold War returned? Russian ministers might think so. Recently, ministers in the country exchanged their Apple iPads for tablets made by Samsung. It seems that the iOS flavored slabs do not offer enough security, and those working in the government feel that the iPads can no longer handle sensitive information. On the other hand, Russian minister Nikolai Nikiforov says that the new Samsung branded slates are "specially protected devices..."

Yup.
Not only HTC sould listen, but Apple, too.

This "premium aluminum" mumbo-jumbo must end , ones and for all.
Many ppl don't like the Tim Cook's "fashion orientation" and "passion", and have diffent view about , what the tecnology is.
(tech design is not "aluminum"- the worst material for smatphones , though)

Oppo used the correct material for a smartphone, Titanium.

This report is very miss leading... selection of secure product means cold war? Russians or anyone has a right to choose what they feel is more better for their requirement... even US own government approved knox feature of samsung, so US is also doing cold war against IOS?? thats a crazy to thing to think

Lol secutiry? If they wanted "security" they wouldn't be on any tablet what so ever. This isn't the movies or some sci fi b.s. It's all politics.

But it's okay. Too many firms and companies use iPads. It's good to share the spotlight once in a while.

Unfortunately I don't care about neither of those manufactures or brands. They don't quite bend my interest.

I feel like this is because of US spying and they think Apple helps them do it.
