    It's a life and death situation, and to the best of my knowledge, they are not suicidal. Thus, I'll bet they aren't gonna be manufactured by Samsung :p

    That's because Android phones are for porn.

    Honestly.

    The idea of them using an Android phone is a really nice change of pace from the way Defense procurement used to be. I remember doing a GPS comparison years ago at an Army base I used to work on. We compared a Garmin GPS to an uncoded PLGR (Precision Lightweight GPS Receiver). The PLGR was 4 times the size, weighed a whole lot more, and literally cost 10x what the Garmin GPS cost.

    Custom devices may have certain benefits over off-the-shelf but the cost difference is staggering...

    Mr. Jobs? Is that you? :)
