Weird flex but OK... Motorola's comeback is a $1,500 Razr flip-phone with folding 6.2" screen

Since Lenovo bought Motorola Mobility, this is basically a Chinese government-hacked, Beijing server-callback mobile device DESIGNED to be put into the hands of wealthy (and sometimes important!) people who don't know any better OBLIVIOUS that all their secrets are being sent BACK to Beijing (aka PLA aka People's Liberation Army) intelligence agencies.

I'll have to hack the BIOS and shave the CPU chips to find the callback and/or signals intercepts circuits and any IPV4/IPV6/BaseBand OS callback/intercept microcode on this sucker! I'll get one JUST BECAUSE I CAN and then to shave its innards to see what's up! I will checker EVERY resistor, diode, rectifier, PSU, motherboard layer, chip layer and antennae hardware with RF/Xray/electron tomography gear and physical electron-microscope level scrutiny! Since modern circuits can be at microdot sizes these days, you need 9600 dpi to 65000 or more dpi (dots per inch) scanning capability which means electron microscopes are needed to find those nano-sized circuits.

We'll see what they have embedded. After Lenovo's Tablet/PC callback-to-China furor, I expect this Motorola to have the SAME issues with signals interception capabilities and data insecurity!
