The United States Army has decided that Android is its best fit when searching for a platform for its new data network. In fact, troops will be deployed with none other than the Motorola Atrix. Said to offer more versatility than other platforms, the Armed Forces chose Android over competing platforms iOS and Windows Phone.
So what will the Army use Android for? Possible uses include, tracking danger with maps functionality and even allowing notifications to communicate strategical information or imminent danger in the notifications tray. Overall, the system should prove extremely useful for organization and strategical planning out in the field.
Even with an older phone like the Atrix, it’s good to see Android having a presence in the military as its go-to platform. The Atrix should prove durable and secure (fingerprint scanner anyone?) for most needs of the Armed Forces.
