Coating Android With Security

The Blackberry Priv, the first Android phone launched by BlackBerry, is here with multiple layers of security such as a “DTEK” warning system, cryptography with “Hardware Root of Trust” as well as app scanning layers called Verified Boot and Secure Bootchain to make you really confident..you know, if you are the paranoid kind. Besides being really really secure, this phone has other appealing features too – a 5.4 inch display, with a keyboard that slides out, very sturdy and capable. Why is it on Android OS, you ask? Well, it’s about getting access to a wider range of apps that Google has created, which means it’ll be easier to do everything with one phone, rather than switching back and forth between your “work” and “home” phones!
