Pentagon gives its first approval of an Android phone to the Dell Streak
Dell has discontinued the model (which certainly gave them an incentive to price the remaining units very low so that they could clean out the last of the phone's inventory), the Dell Streak is powered by Android 2.2 which is well behind the curve these days. Both DISA and Dell have allegedly been working on getting the Dell Streak to meet the demands of the Pentagon for over a year and the phone is now approved for secure, unclassified communications. Still, features like remote data wipe, protection of passwords and security measures controlled by the IT department are not hard to find on a modern smartphone. According to DefenseSystems, the government chose the Dell Streak because it liked the form factor.
