Anti-Spying Blackphone Starts Shipping
Android, Win Phone To Get Kill Switch
Report: Spyware on Chinese Phone
BlackBerry BBM Boosts Security
Apple Aims To Boost Enterprise Sales
The privacy-centered Blackphone has started shipping to the device's first pre-order customers. The handset was developed in response to revelations about NSA spying.
Google and Microsoft are doing something they've never done before -- incorporating a "kill switch" into the next generation of their mobile operating systems. Apple already has a kill switch in iOS.
A cheap brand of Chinese-made smartphones carried by major online retailers comes preinstalled with espionage software, a German security firm says, with malware hidden deep in the software.
A more secure messaging app known as BBM Protected is now available for BlackBerry users, with security features that can be key for some business users. Android and iOS apps are due later this year.
While Apple dominates the consumer market, the tech titan has room to grow within the corporate world. New enterprise-centric features in iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite could help boost that market share.
