Government of Russia has refused iPad in favor superseding tablets Samsung, said the head of the Ministry of communications of Russia Nikolay Nikiforov.
"It is protected in a special way devices that can be used for handling of confidential information. Some information in the government sessions are confidential, and these devices (Samsung) fully meet these requirements and have passed the most stringent certification system" - quoted Mr. Nikiforov Agency ITAR-TASS.
The Official reason "replacement" called a purely technical nature, that is, supposedly, the policy is not satisfied exclusively by the technical capabilities of equipment, but to the naked eye traced the real reason - the looming conflict with the US, which is indirectly confirmed one of the editions of The Wall Street journal, reflecting on the theme "initiated a large-scale information intelligence from the US in regard to Russia".
Although, it should be noted that Nikolay Nikiforov repeatedly reiterated that "it has nothing to do with the sanctions that Russia could impose American Apple", but it should also be recalled that a few days ago, Nikiforov said that "the U.S. is already put on the use of their software and equipment in Russian governmental bodies".
