I had sort of a idea this would happen glad my hypothesis was proven :) but even then I believe there is nothing really changed since SK is our Ally As Well xD
If they were really worried about spying, they would have the Chinese mass produce a bunch of imitations....unless they don't trust the Chinese either.
I think that the Russians just don't trust the US anymore so they want a closer producer that they can trust and they have (probably) better relations with. The last thing the need is the NSA bugging the iPads they are receiving.
I would have chosen Android as well, I would have mentioned pricing, but it looks like the Samsung tablets are a bit pricey as well.
good chose apple is confusing and all that stuff and on the other side android has safe secure personal contacts . and all of that. i personally dislike the apple company cause i have a ipod 4th gen and its the slowest and when i plug it into the computer all hell brakes lose the things trying to back it up theres dumb apps being installed and takes an hour to get the apps you want on there because of dumbness apple is so id rather go with samsung!
Don't know about all this spying stuff they are worried about but I would have gone with Samsung either way!
they are just paranoid
Yes it is lol ^
samsung.. as in android? I would say thats the LEAST secure phone OS out there! lol. good luck with that one. Seems like every week some report comes out.. bitcoin mining, fake security apps, malware... if I have to install an antivirus on my phone... someone isnt doing their job
