At this time of year it’s something of a tradition – certainly within the mobile industry – to make predictions for the year ahead. It’s a trend we’ve followed with The Fonecast… and we’ve done reasonably well over the last few years.

A survey conducted amongst 250 senior executives in the United States on behalf of mobile security company Cellcrypt has shown that the security of mobile phone calls is already being addressed in some form by most of the companies surveyed – although the measures may not be effective.
