Tip for Barack Obama – Dump that BlackBerry for a NSA-approved Windows Mobile device

Obama currently uses a blackberry for mobile-email. No doubt, it is great for email, but routing his email all through Canada does raises a few security concerns. Instead, he can use an NSA-approved Windows Mobile device, which would give much more security.

According to the General Dynamics site, the Sectéra Edge boasts the following:

  • Secure and non-secure wireless phone, e-mail and web browsing
  • Withstands rigors of both tactical and everyday environments
  • Global roaming over GSM, CDMA or Wi-Fi* wireless networks
  • Software upgradeable to VoIP
  • Exchange secure e-mail with government personnel, including S/MIME BlackBerry® users
  • IPv6 software upgradeable
  • Familiar Microsoft® Windows® Platform
  • Wireless desktop synchronization
  • Separation of Classified and Unclassified applications
  • One-touch switching between classified and unclassified PDA functions
  • Advanced Security Features
  • Secure wireless access to the SIPRNET and NIPRNET
  • DoD PKI enabled Common Access Card (CAC) support
  • Supports DoD 8100.2 requirements
  • Type 1 encrypted storage of classified data
  • Can be used inside closed areas with “SCIF-Friendly” feature

It is also NSA-certified. Oh and I forgot to mention the price of that Windows Mobile device. It is mere $3500 :)
