Samsung get US Military order, encroaching into BlackBerry territory

Last updated:

The US Army recently gave an order to Samsung for 7000 smartphones, and another order for several thousand more could soon be coming from the NSA, according to people familiar with the situation.

The army order was for Samsung’s Nett Warrior system which gives a soldier a chest mounted Samsung Galaxy Note II  for battlefield use. Samsung already had a contract to supply the military with the Nett Warrior system, and the new order increases the number of Galaxy Note II’s Samsung has in combat.

Samsung said that it is seeing great progress in having its devices adopted by the military. By getting orders from the military, Samsung might be able to snag more orders from corporations, who in the past had to rely on BlackBerry handsets.
