Launch of highly secure 'cryptophone'

The new arrival of the Blackphone aims to capitalise on the push towards communications privacy.

    In the wake of the US National Security Agency (NSA) intelligence leaks, mobile phone companies are increasingly turning their attention to security. That means encrypting your calls and messages from prying ears and eyes.

    The Blackphone's arrival is one of the most hotly-anticipated launches at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, from where Al Jazeera's Tarek Bazely reports.
