Secure Android kernel could make for 'classified' smart phones

http://j.mp/n3yJYj  (Government Computer News)

    "A research team from Google, George Mason University and the National
     Security Agency have developed a hardened kernel for the Android 3.0
     operating system that could solve the problem of using smart phones in
     military operations and emergency response.  The kernel, which is in
     the final stages of certification testing, opens the way for the Army
     to begin issuing smart phones or tablet-type wireless devices to
     troops in combat operations."
