When we talk of Smartphones Today, The major point which comes in the picture is the level of Security you can get. Blackberry has been working quite aggressively in this field, but When I heard of Solarin Smartphone, I got curious what’s worth $ 17000 ?
What Company calls it as ” A true Smartphone “. But why, The reasons are : SOLARIN comes with Zimperium state-of-the-art mobile threat protection that thwarts the broadest array of advanced device, network and application mobile cyberattacks, without impairing usability or functionality of a top-of-the-range smartphone. In addition, SOLARIN incorporates the most advanced privacy technology, currently unavailable outside the agency world. SIRIN LABS partnered with KoolSpan to integrate chip-to-chip 256-bit AES encryption, the same technology that militaries around the world use to protect their communications, offering the strongest possible mobile privacy protection worldwide. Activated by the unique Security Switch on the back of the handset, the phone enters a shielded mode, presenting an exclusive suite for fully encrypted calls and messages.
