Review: Proporta TurboCharger 5000 – External Emergency Charger Battery Pack
The New York Police Department (NYPD) began giving away Android smartphones to its officers as part of a new pilot to improve public safety. According to the New York Times’ story, some 400 devices have already been distributed, providing officers with detailed access to police data while on the move. Apparently these phones can’t be used for making or receiving phone calls, but thanks to the built-in data connection and an appropriate software running on the server, officers can quickly look-up into suspects’ criminal history, verify identities using police photographs and access vehicle registrations.
