BlackBerrys goes Hi Tech with new ID security chip

BlackBerry jumps into new state of the art security with new ID chip. Security is big these days and since recently hacking has been at the forefront of the news specially with high profile sites being hacked such as Nintendo, Sony and many more, large companies are looking for ways to minimize down time and protect their “interests”

This is where BlackBerry comes in, they have practically pioneered phone security with pretty much all their phones this is why they have decided to be the first of many phone makers to include this new NFC technology. NFC enables data to be exchanged wirelessly over distances of a few centimeters, meaning mobile phones can be used to pay for goods, store electronic tickets, download music and swap photos and business cards.

“This is an industry first and quite a milestone for us because it enables the capability of a mobile device to now have an identity stored in it for use in logical and physical access,” said HID Global Chief Executive Denis Hebert.

I think this is a smart move to try to increase gains to what has been a pretty negative year for BlackBerry, and getting high end, government contracts is definitely going to increase their value.
