Russian government officials have swapped their iPads for Samsung tablets to ensure tighter security, according to the country's telecoms minister.

The AFP reports that journalists spotted the change at a cabinet meeting and minister Nikolai Nikiforov confirmed the switch "took place not so long ago." Nikiforov said that the Samsung tablets were "specially protected devices that can be used to work with confidential information."

"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 denied that the switch was due to sanctions put on the country for its takeover of Ukraine's Crimea peninsula; however, he did suggest that the country would be increasingly targeted by surveillance efforts and so they had to be choosy about their partners.

"American special services... will significantly increase the volume of information they intercept (which) of course causes serious concern to many governmental clients. This obviously orientates Russian clients, primarily state ones, to be very choosy about their partners in IT."

Your brain is pure junk, any apple mocker expresses their jealousy written all over it and what's even ironic is delusioned fanboys are on a site dedicated to apple because it has an I in it and you call them "trolls" and barely any fanboy gives a f*ck. That sums up your life right there. Samscum is pure junk, using same plastic toy stragedy just to trick people in with the same old "bigger is better" shit, what's the point of big ass phones which leads to nothing but less space in pockets, pay more, and no one hand use. FYI that one guy who can't even spell American is the one who act like the delusional British one, seriously who agrees with someone who can't spell one word right in their comments. This also proves your education. Keep living the dream with no metal phones and ideas a year too late after Apple. I don't need big ass shit, it's like preferring size over speed. Wise choice huh.
