You will soon be able to encrypt Cell talk


A new fingertip-sized voice encryption chip could lead to broader adoption of mobile device voice encryption.

Next month, KoolSpan will release the TrustChip, a US$300 encryption chip in an SD memory card form factor that end users themselves can slide into any Windows Mobile or Symbian device with an SD card slot.

The TrustChip automatically encrypts voice data when an end user calls another TrustChip-enabled phone.
