Boeing and Blackberry reportedly creating a “self-destructing phone”

If there’s one brand you probably don’t want to associate with the words “self-destructing”, it is probably Boeing – but that doesn’t seem to have stopped the company from partnering with Blackberry to develop a super secure phone.

According to The Telegraph, the phone will be designed for government agencies that need high levels of security – and the phone will even go as far as to delete the contents of the device should anyone tamper with the casing on the phone.

On the server side it will apparently be using Blackberry Enterprise Server. It isn’t immediately clear what Boeing will be bringing to the table – unless the phone also needs a pair of wings.

The news comes just days after Blackberry announced the launch of the Blackberry Classic in the States.
