Launch of highly secure 'cryptophone'

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

    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.
