Dell Streak 5 will be able to send encrypted messages, surf a secure web


Do you remember that one Halloween day last year when it was announced that the Dell Streak 5 was certified by the Department of Defense for use by its personnel

Well, I do, and now a new report elaborates on how the Streak 5 was able to be certified, and what partners Dell may have had to bring the idea to life. A software developer called Good Technology actually helped Dell to make ultra-secure apps for the pocket tablet, and the software is actually what gave personnel a chance to have one as their work phones. 

Now that the DOD has had a chance to see the potential that Good Technology's . . . uh, technology, has for day-to-day operations, the latter company has been given the chance to work with other devices, and other manufacturers, to bring secure internet to a wide variety of new form factors and devices. 

I know that all of you know the Streak 5 is a fantastic device, but it's so great to see that it actually turned a government agency's philosophy on smartphones completely around.
