it appear those things are so expensive that I couldn't find any price 
for it. (searching for "secure cell phone" on google)
also, it appears that none of those things can talk to one another, each 
doing it's little thing.
now, if we can have something similar to an STUIII phone, with public 
keys and stuff (think either using gpg or ca-cert keys), we're on to 
something that could become a standard.
one thing though, we may need a special tempest proof version of the 
case for that to be sufficiently secure
