A little back Kevin did a review for an application called RadGuard and while at the time we had some fun with it on the post and on the podcast a new report could possibly explain why eveytime Kevin tried to use his BlackBerry with the app installed it set off the radiation alarm. A non-profit research and advocacy firm called Environmental Working Group has done testing and ranking on over 1,000 cellular phones to determine their SAR ratings and share that information. While studies are still being conducted on the actual effects the radiation maybe a few preventative measures wouldn't hurt. Especially considering two BlackBerry devices made the top 10 worst list.
Take from that what you will. Personally, I have no concerns over the cellphone radiation levels and I say let the FCC worry about it, but that's just me. You can head on over to the groups site for the full list.
It's tough to find just the right mix of privacy and productivity on a smartphone today. Apostrophy has arguably come the closest to bringing compatibility and security together with their partitioned approach, dividing their OS into a secure "Domus" and an unrestricted "Piazza."
