Samsung Soul: Full Metal Jacket By: Eric Everson, Founder MyMobiSafe.com

As a leading mobile security expert, I can not deny my military roots which makes the U.S. debut of the Samsung Soul very exciting. Before you go and dismiss this debut as “yet another multimedia phone” one must ask what’s up with the full metal jacket?

In military speak, a full metal jacket (FMJ) suggests a metal composite layer over the lead core structure of a bullet. In weaponry this feature is designed to enhance the structural integrity of the round while decreasing the damage caused by metallic bore deposits. Additionally, an FMJ allows for greater muzzle velocity for the round. One might ask how all of this FMJ stuff transfers into the mobile environment…

As for increasing ones mobile security I must contend that the FMJ feature doesn’t protect your handset from hackers any more than that bogus claim if wrapping your Blackberry in aluminum foil. The despite the purely aesthetic appeal of the FMJ on the Samsung Soul, the only added protection it might create is in strength of the handset. A quick review of physics would demonstrate the ability of the metal casing to displace the shock of impact across the surface area of the handset potentially resulting in less internal damage in the case of dropping the handset.

The FMJ may not keep the hackers out, but it sure makes the handset look cool! I’ll give this one an A+ for the cool factor. As for any of you wrapping your Blackberry up in aluminum foil to keep the hackers out, go look up gullible in the dictionary and take your phone out of that foil so you don’t look foolish. If you are worried enough to wrap your phone in foil, you might just consider a third-party mobile security solution.
