dredre123 (962507) writes "The new Open Phone coalition may preclude an actual gPhone device.
From the BBC : "[Google] is working with four mobile manufacturers — Samsung, HTC, Motorola and LG — but there will not be a Google brand phone."
According to Eric Schmidt, Google CEO: "Today's announcement is more ambitious than any single Google Phone that the press has been speculating about over the past few weeks,"
So no gPhone after all."

+ - BlackBerry ban for French Cabinet->

Submitted by

dredre123 writes "According to the Financial Times:


Members of the new French cabinet have been told to stop using their BlackBerries because of fears that the US could intercept state secrets.

The ban has been prompted by SGDN (responsible for national security) concerns that the BlackBerry system is based on servers located in the US and the UK, and that highly sensitive strategic information being passed between French ministers could fall into foreign hands.

Unfortunately, no alternative service has been declared secure yet."
