That's not a good discussion point:
Also personal computer run closed source BIOS/UEFI firmware, *exactly*
like normal phones.

PGP for Mobile Phones is very important.
It's already diffused (there are iOS, Android and Blackberry
Implementation) trough the use of third party application.

This is a unique opportunity to have a mobile operating system that run
by default a OpenPGP secured mobile client without third party application.

I remind everyone that:
- HKP PGP key servers are starting supporting HTTP/CORS request
- OpenHKP Javascript library can interacti with that

This will finally enable Javascript application to full interoperate
within OpenPGP world, from Web and Mobile environment over HTTPS.

I really feel that 2014 is going to be a year plenty of good news for
massive adoption of end-to-end encryption :-)
