A group of companies have come together to develop and launch a secure Android running smartphone called Blackphone. With more emphasis being given on security these days and the recent NSA scandal taking privacy concerns to a whole new level, the Blackphone promises to keep your data/conversations safe and secure. The phone will be shown off at the MWC next month with pre-orders set to start immediately after but no further details have been provided at this point. With Android not exactly the most secure OS going around, it’s quite clear that the Blackphone will get considerable attention at the MWC.
The smartphone will reportedly give users the ability to make phone calls, send texts or even browse the internet using secure servers (via VPNs), thus making life a lot easier for those worried about privacy. The working and functioning of the smartphone has still not been shown off, so we will reserve judgment until we have a glimpse at the functioning of the device. The smartphone will be running on a skinned version of Android called PrivatOS according to the makers.
