If you're going to use this, mind the backdoor that the cellular radio is. More likely than not, it has direct access to the main RAM, so an attacker who can talk to the cellular radio from the network side (which three-letter agencies, as well as common criminals with a rogue BTS or just corrupt employees of your carrier, can certainly do) will laugh at any security you might have implemented at the OS level.

In other words, if you want a secure Android device it must either be a tablet with no cellular radio, or a phone whose antennas you have physically disconnected (a simple hardware mod), essentially turning it into a small Wi-Fi-only tablet.
