Can’t decide between loyalty to iOS or Android?  Perhaps you need to look into a third option.  In May, Bkav, a Vietnamese network security company based in Hanoi, unveiled the “Bphone” which the company is promoting as an ‘iPhone killer’.  In the release announcement, which bore an uncanny resemblance to Steve Jobs’ famed product launches, the company’s CEO unveiled the first ‘made-in-Vietnam’ smartphone and noted several features that are superior to the iPhone 6.  The Bphone’s features include the company’s customized ‘BOS’ operating system, 3GB of RAM (iPhone: 1GB), a 13-megapixel camera (iPhone: 8 MPx) and employment of TransferJet — a technology developed by Sony that enables data transfers between two enabled devices at speeds up to 100 times faster than Bluetooth.
