Motorola Solutions introduces the Motorola AME 2000 smartphone at the 2013 RSA Conference in San Francisco, California.

The RSA Conference is a cryptography and information security-related conference that gathers and shares the latest knowledge and advancement in the area of internet security. This year, Motorola Solutions unveiled the AME 2000 Android-powered smartphone which the company claims to be one of the most secured smart devices in the market.

The AME 2000 which stands for Assured Mobile Environment is based on the Motorola Atrix HD and features enhanced hardware and management policies.  It has several layers of security built from the ground up that makes this phone suitable for high-security government officials or personnel.

The device has two different processors, one for the phone itself and the other as a hardware-encrypted chip. The second chip called CRYPTR micro is a hardware security module that provides tamper protection for tokens, keys and certificates, and looks like a typical microSD card. The chip meets above average encryption standards and can perform high-assurance cryptographic operations.

The AME 2000 also has specialised apps such as a secure dialer and SMS app for improved security. But since it is powered by Android, the user interface and basic features of the device is relatively same as the Atrix HD making it easy to use and eliminating the need to teach users how to operate an entirely new OS.

Currently, the Motorola AME 2000 will not be commercially available like other phones and there’s no information yet on pricing but representatives from Motorola solutions say that the phone may cost two to two and half times higher than the cost of an unlocked phone and that the company is not closing its doors for sales to smaller business or even consumers.
