Israeli startup Sirin Labs has produced an ultra secure, titanium-clad Android smartphone that costs over $14,000.
Named Solarin, the device lets you toggle between a regular Android mobile and a locked-down, military-grade communications tool. When you’re in the green and white, 8-bit skin safe mode, all but essential features are disabled, and both calls and text messages are encrypted. Your data is protected by 256-bit AES encryption, backed up by security firms Zimperium and Koolspan, and there’s a concierge service that monitors your phone’s security to warn you of incoming attacks.
