+ - Russia's New Secure Android Tablet Keeps Data From Google-> 1

Submitted by wiredmikey
wiredmikey (1824622) writes "It seems Russia's defense ministry doesn't trust Google's tablet computers: a new Android device presented to a top Russian government official boasts encryption and works with software and a global positioning system made in Russia, the AFP reports.

The OS has all the functional capabilities of an Android operating system but none of its hidden features that send users' private data to Google, addressing concerns that data stored by Google could slip into the hands of the US government and expose some of their most secret and sensitive communications.

Two versions of the tablet will supposedly be made — one for consumers and one for defense needs."

  • I should have actually out "Android-like" or "Almost Android" as the story has it. It's not officially Android but a "slimmed down" version of it. The operating system has all the functional capabilities of an Android operating system but none of its hidden features that send users' private data to Google headquarters, according to the project manager.

How can you work when the system's so crowded?
