Russia turns from iPads to Samsung Tabs over security concerns
Russia’s economic battleline with the US doesn’t seem to be going away very soon. The two gaints are taking jibes at each other with policies will effect negatively on the other’s economic gain.
Russian telecoms minister Nikolai Nikiforov says that government officials have since ditched their Apple iPads “not so long ago”, and are now using new Samsung devices which are “specially protected devices that can be used to work with confidential information.”
However, the minister denied that Russia was going against US products against the backdrop of the nations tussle over Russia’s takeover of Crimea.
“Some of the information at government meetings is confidential in nature and these devices fully meet these demands and have gone through the strictest system of certification,” Nikiforov said.
