Get a phone with Android 4.2, turn on the built-in "Always-on VPN" option. Done.

Though $50 a year isn't terrible for the service. Assuming it's decent (though looks like it requires stupid proprietary service) and speedy.

Thanks for pointing that out, vk. You're right; the screen is almost 83% larger diagonally, which is different than the increase in overall screen surface area.

Nectar Pod batteries for $9.99 and $300.00 for the base unit? Who is 2 weeks without power? Put a LI-ion battery in a box with a USB connector - done. Actually did it 2 months ago. Cost $5.00

A quick comment on the 3M screen, 46 -> 84 is the diagonal, but the screen is over 230% bigger, not 80%. You're talking about a screen that feels over 3x the size.

I like the idea of invoking a VPN specifically designed to protect data on mobile phones. I would be interested to see how stable it really is. If so, I think this will be a hit.
