Behind The Blackphone: The Future Of Mobile Security?


Introducing The Blackphone

It may be the most secure personal smartphone to ever hit the market. Featuring encrypted calls, texts, emails and Web browsing, the Blackphone runs on a modified Android operating system fittingly dubbed PrivateOS.

The device is being marketed as an easy-to-use high-end smartphone with world-class communications tools, and has a name suited for something you might find in Batman's utility belt. Not surprisingly, it has caught the eyes of techies all over.
