    Samsung delays launch of Knox Android security software until 'later date' (Source PCWorld)....

    If you're looking for more robust security features for your business's Android phones, you're going to be waiting much longer—at least if your company relies on hardware from the most popular Android manufacturer in the land.

    Samsung has pushed back the launch of its Knox security software for Galaxy Android smartphones until summer, according to a New York Times report that claims more testing is needed before Knox finds its way into people’s hands.

    The setback is reportedly due to Samsung needing more time to test the software internally. Rigorous carrier testing was also cited as a delaying factor. Carrier compatibility testing can take months, and is one of the major reasons why the Android platform remains so fragmented.

      • AS you may be aware, Bill Gates was in South Korea last week or so to meet with Samsung and other Mobility vendors and it seems Samsung will be getting ready to extensively utilize Windows 8 on their Mobility devices, some 65 million Phone units sold during last quarter....

        Stay tuned.

        oh, no! bad news for #6 phone! no one plan to use it when security important. like next feb at pentagon (from kind of old bloomberg article):

        Pentagon Will Open Networks to Apple, Google Devices in 2014

        The U.S. Defense Department said today it will begin opening its communications networks by next February to mobile phones and tablet computers from Apple Inc. (AAPL) and Google Inc. (GOOG)

        The move may pose a threat to BlackBerry (BBRY)’s dominance at the Pentagon, which has more than 450,000 of the company’s devices. BlackBerry has lost market share to competitors and seeks to make a comeback with its new BlackBerry 10 phone. The device will go on sale in the U.S. next month.

        The Pentagon said it wants employees to have the flexibility to use commercial products on its systems, including its classified network for the first time. It plans to create a military mobile applications store and hire a contractor to build a system that may eventually handle as many as 8 million devices.

        “This is not simply about embracing the newest technology –- it is about keeping the department’s workforce relevant in an era when information accessibility and cybersecurity play a critical role in mission success,” Teri Takai, the department’s chief information officer, said in a statement.

      • Samsung does not need expensive lawsuits with AAPL....

        IN this case AAPL is right as the Google boys stole Steve Job's software and ideas when he was trying to help them get started (they basically Scroogled AAPL)....

        So Android has fatal security flaws, is a stolen software platform and a large company like Samsung should be dealing with Mr. Softy and save a lot of $ on developing malware and lawsuits.

        OR Nokia is going to eat their lunch!
