  • President Obama Gets Bulletproof BlackBerry Z10



    We all know by now that President Obama is a BlackBerry user and refused to hand over his phone when he became President of the United States, much to the chagrin of the Secret Service. He has been photographed many times using his trusty, older BlackBerry and now, he's sporting new custom BlackBerry Z10 which is bulletproof.

    In an interview with Guns and Ammunition magazine, BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins revealed the new custom made BlackBerry Z10 had been delivered to President Obama in "The first week of February, after undergoing rigorous testing by BlackBerry and other agencies associated with the White House."

    "It is a remarkable advancement in technology that we feel suits the office of the President", Mr. Heins stated. Keeping a tight lid on the project was key to the approval process, as testing at Waterloo lab started close to a year ago. "We wanted to make sure that the durability of the phone's case matched the unrivaled security that BlackBerry has always offered."

    Made of a complex multiblock copolymer polyurathanem, the material encases the components and makes them virtually indestructible to bullets, explosives and radiation. The polymer, invented at Rice University, is a breakthrough in ballistic technology and will provide protection to troops in the field for body armor as well as the high tech equipment that they use.

    Mr. Heins added in his interview that other world leaders have been given the bulletproof BlackBerry Z10 including, "Prime Minister David Cameron of the UK, Germany's Chancellor Merkel, Vladimir Putin of Russia and of course Prime Minister Harper of our Canada."

    It's interesting to think what this new polymer technology will bring to the smartphone in the near future. If it can be made available to the consumer market, it could literally spell the end to the need for protective cases as we now know them. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
