    ... nope. And worse - probably made in China of Korea. Good for the US budget deficit? LOL!

    If they are doing this the DOD needs to have a tight control on this. I'm sure that all will be reviewed and tested before anything gets released and available to install.

    Why would you think that iOS would even be considered. It's not open sourced like Android.

    ^^ good point. Mostly Taiwan, China, Korea. Outsourcing... and where cheap labor and cheap assembly workshops predominate. Manufacturing go to the lowest bidder as well. It's only design and patents that are local. That's where the money, really, is.

    That's what I thought. I figured I might be wrong, but I wasn't aware of any smartphone manufactured in the US.

    Apple will take a piece of this since they're already improving their security.

    Don't think so. iOS and Android aren't compatible. Unless Jobs manages to sabotage...
