Spy Scandal Spreads At Sweden's Ericsson

We originally saw this story earlier in the week, but figured it wasn’t a big deal. However, now it seems to be expanding as two more Ericsson employees were suspended for allegedly feeding secret material to a “foreign intelligence service”. There’s also talk of a Russian diplomat being expelled from the country. The company, which besides making mobile phone technology, does make military equipment – says the leaked documents weren’t about military projects. So, I’m wondering, just what is in those new phones from Ericsson? This may be the best publicity they could get ever. If people are willing to use espionage tactics to steal plans for mobile phones, then, I want that phone too.
