Smartphones on Their Way to the Battlefield

Ad Feedback

Today's smartphones are equipped to do just about everything. Now the Army wants to see if the hi-tech gadgets can be useful in combat, delivering vital data to soldiers on the frontlines.

The Wall Street Journal reports the Army will hold desert trials next week on iPhones, Android phones, and tablet computers like the iPad.
Military officials plan to test apps for tasks like streaming video from a surveillance camera and downloading the latest information from a remote computer.
The military may also develop new apps for combat -- like one called 'SoldiersEyes' that could scan the horizon and objectives on a battlefield.
