Re: A real market?
I can't think of any practical consumer uses (other than a pretty awesome party trick). Certainly practical for military/government use, though.

A real market?
In the era of consumer tech/BYOD and the death of multiple devices, is there a real market (Beyond the Mission: Impossible team) for this type of phone?  And a key question not answered by the article – can you play Angry Birds on it?

Origin of the Boeing Self Destructing Phone
The article did not mention it, it is well known in the Puget Sound area (Seattle) that this device is the product of a "black hole" activity also known as the 787 program. The tenfold cost overrun of that program developed technology that can destroy any good idea, including labor harmony and for which an Android phone was child's play. Of course using Android as the basis for a trusted phone destroys any hope of security which makes it the perfect match for the self destructive hardware. One would suspect the marketing efforts to be similar.
