Boeing developing its own pricey smartphone

    Boeing is developing a new smartphone for the defense and security market, based on Google's Android operating system.

The Boeing Co. is getting into another industry: smartphones.

GeekWire reports that Boeing's device won't rival Apple's iPhone or other phones the average person would find at their wireless store.

Instead, Boeing is developing a phone based on Google's Android operating system that would be used in the U.S. defense and security market. Similar phones on the market cost about $20,000. ... which makes the iPhone look like a bargain.

Boeing told National Defense Magazine that it wants to develop a less costly phone and introduce it later this year.
