Coast Guard signs off on iPhone, Android devices

The Coast Guard is becoming the first military service to adopt iPhones and Android smartphones for its workforce. Coast Guard officials say their current generation of wireless devices was becoming obsolete, so they needed to move on to new technology. The devices will run software that creates a secure encrypted area for government email and other data. Down the road, the Coast Guard is planning to develop its own mobile applications to help its members respond to incidents.
