GLEN ROCK, N.J., Oct. 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Cellebrite, the leading provider of mobile forensic solutions, today announced that its Universal Forensic Extraction Device (UFED) is now able to extract data from Android phones in a physical manner. The UFED device, which already offers physical and logical data extraction and decoding from more than 6,800 device profiles and GPS devices, now includes revolutionary physical extraction for Android devices including LG, ZTE, Kyocera and Acer. Cellebrite's UFED is the first forensic extraction device to perform a physical NAND chip extraction. The physical extraction bypasses locked devices and does not require rooting.

Android physical extraction enables decoding of a variety of data types including call logs, contacts, SMS, MMS, chat, locations, web history, images, videos, audio, text files and deleted data. Extraction and decoding is also possible for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections and geotagging data for photos. The extracted and decoded date can be presented in a report that can be used as evidence in a court of law.

Ron Serber, Co-CEO, said, "We are delighted to be the first company to offer true physical extraction capabilities to Android based devices.  Extracting this popular mobile platform has been a tough challenge and required a great deal of research and development from the Cellebrite team.  However, the addition of the range of Android phones to our extensive list of supported platforms allows us to maintain our pledge to our customers worldwide to support the widest array of new and legacy mobile devices. Physical support for the Samsung Galaxy S family (Galaxy S, Galaxy S2 and Galaxy Tab) will soon be released."
