    Less precise than a stylus, with my TP2 I can RDP in at the phones native res and use all of the Windows UI. It was actually the reason why I went for that rather than the HD2 and one of the reasons why I am still not sold on the WP7 platform.

    I use two, the iPhone and the Nokia. However both contracts are up for renewal so, most likely, will be changing them in the next couple of months.

    Same here, except I'm running CyanogenMod 7 Froyo 2.2 - the business. Don;t think I'll be going back to WinMo any time soon!

    With FreeOFTE you can set up an encrypted file (up to 4GB on a FAT formatted SD card IIRC, larger on NTFS) which can contain whatever you like. If you're really paranoid you can do the "hidden volume" thing where you can give out the password to the encrypted file if under duress, but this will only allow access to "fake" files while a different password (and an offset value) reveals your "real" files. The PDA version can be installed on your phone and there is a desktop version that (for instance) allows you to whip the SD card from your phone and access your encrypted data on your computer.

    You just fire up the prog on your phone, put in the decryption info and you can use the encrypted data as if it were a "normal" set of folders/files. When done, dismount the encrypted volume and it's locked away safely. Great if you want to store sensitive data on your phone - you can even work on (say) Excel spreadsheets containing data that you want kept secure.

    I've yet to find something comparable on anything but WinMo (<6.5?).

    Me. AFAIK it's the only option with a desktop compatible encryption solution (Free OFTE/4 PDA).

    If I could find a comparable Android app I'd consider switching.
    Android has plenty of encryption sync types of apps that run ota. And remote find,wipe, lock if its lost.

    Are these "proper" encryption, or "folder locks"? Whenever I've Googled "Android Encryption" (and I just - briefly - did) nothing that looks suitable turns up. Could you post some app names?

    Some info I have found

    Android Honeycomb can encrypt all your data
    The new Android V3 has this built in.

    Tasker for Android
    decrypt/encrypt and/or zip/unzip application data on the fly when an application is launched/exits

    Security Musings » Blog Archive » Encrypt stored data in Android
    DIY

    I also thought you could use drop box or google docs to store all your data in the cloud. No data stored on your phone so no need to encrypt the micro sd card.

    The encryption API was added to Android V2.2 but not implemented into the core system, but apps should be able to use this.

    I did find some folder/file based encryption apps. These are the first ones I found. (not used these)
    Walkie Vault - encryption tool - Cyrket
    Beysoft - MyStash - File Encryption for your Android phone to hide your secret files, photos, videos, documents.

    Currently these are probably not what your looking for but Android V3 when it comes out should hit the mark.
