Guess Who's Making the Next Secure Cell Phones

The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TÃœBITAK) intends to start producing mobile phones that are protected from wiretapping, Turkish Minister of Science, Industry and Technology Fikri Isik was quoted by Al Jazeera Turk TV channel as saying.
"Turkey also intends to establish production and export smartphones protected from wiretapping to neighboring countries."

The minister did not mention the specific date of the production and the cost of the project. (more)

Not surprising. Turkey has had some serious cell phone eavesdropping problems over the past few years. Many at high levels of government.
