    July 29, 2010: To no one's surprise, an American defense manufacturer has developed a battlefield smart phone. In the works for two years, the RATS (Raytheon Android Tactical System) is a modification of the Android software used on millions of smart phones. Android actually outsells iPhones, and the RATS phone will be able to use existing Android apps, as well as special military apps. Some of these will only work on RATS, which handles encryption and military type communications. Currently, RATS is running on several Motorola and HTC type smart phones. Raytheon began working on RATS as soon as Google released Android.

    Hate to say this but I didn't even see the name of this web site. What kind of credibility does it have?

    I would like to see it reported by someone with some credibility. You can find anything on the web if you look long enough.
