Boeing Co., the aerospace giant that makes fighter jets, airliners and satellites, may enter the cell phone business.

The Chicago company said it has developed an ultra-secure smartphone geared toward Defense and security communities.

The Boeing Black smartphone runs on an Android operating system, contains encrypted storage for sensitive data and has a self-destruct mode that automatically wipes data and renders it inoperable if someone pops open the device. Boeing did not say how much it will cost or when it will be available.
