    How to foil the NSA and GCHQ with strong encryption
    Column Now is the time to secure your communications

    THE MOST INTERESTING DEVICE shown at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona this week was the secure Blackphone developed by Silent Circle and Geeksphone.

    The Blackphone features anonymous search, automatic disabling of non-trusted WiFi hotspots, and private texting, calling and file transfer capabilities. It’s available to the general public, and bundles additional security features that apparently go beyond the basic messaging security provided by Blackberry to enterprise customers in its Blackberry Messaging (BBM) service.

    Samsung Knox enabled devices get Microsoft Workplace Join support
    Firm looks to enhance its enterprise security credentials

    SAMSUNG ANNOUNCED on Friday that its Knox security software suite now supports Microsoft’s Workplace Join feature, as it looks to enhance its enterprise security credentials to challenge iOS and Windows Phone.

    Samsung unveiled a new version of its Knox security suite at Mobile World Congress (MWC) this week, adding features such as two-factor authentication, certificate management, VPN+ and an enhanced container. It also unveiled Knox Marketplace, an enterprise mobility storefront where IT managers can buy apps such as Box and Microsoft Office 365.

    OEM: Windows Phone License Fee Plummeting,2817,2454101,00.asp

    BARCELONA—Windows Phone’s license fee may be going down, down, down.

    “We’re hearing Microsoft will drop the license fee quite a bit, as far as 70 percent, which will make their product more competitive in terms of price,” Infosonics CEO Joseph Ram told PCMag.

    With license fees dropping, Infosonics would certainly consider building Windows Phones, Ram said.

    Ram’s statement comes a few days after Microsoft announced a new list of low-cost phone partners, including Longcheer and Gionee in China, and Karbonn and Xolo in India. Windows Phones based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 platform are designed to compete with devices like Nokia’s X phone, which retails for $122.

    Here’s why the Galaxy S5 has such incredible battery life

    When it announced the Galaxy S5 this week, Samsung pleasantly surprised the audience at MWC 2014 with the phone’s battery performance. The device packs a 2,800 mAh battery that the company claims can deliver 11 hours of video playback or 10 hours of web browsing over LTE. Samsung’s press materials also say that the phone can offer 390 hours of standby time with LTE on, and 21 hours of talk time over WCDMA.

    Furthermore, the company unveiled a new software feature for the phone, the Ultra Power Saving Mode that can offer 24 hours of standby time on a 10% battery. With the battery saving mode on, the phone’s display will show only black and white colors and offer access to only a certain set of applications.

    But there’s more to the phone’s battery life than the Ultra Power Saving Mode.

    Fujitsu Labs develops prototype haptic sensory tablet

    Many smartphone or tablet users will already be familiar with receiving vibration feedback when typing on a virtual keyboard, but, though better than nothing, it’s not particularly convincing. There have been attempts to make sensory feedback from touchscreens more realistic

    The company took the technology to MWC last week, where visitors were introduced to four demonstrations of the haptic sensory capabilities of the prototype tablet.
