The Phones will run on modified Version of Android. First the Devices would be given to U.S Soldiers and than Later would be given Officials.
CNN reports that the government-approved, secured version of Android, phone users will have control of each individual data transmission to the Internet, to ensure that sensitive information isn’t included.
