Behind The Blackphone: The Future Of Mobile Security?


How quickly did the Blackphone sell out? 

Blackphone started taking preorders on the day of the phone's announcement Feb. 24 and sold out April 9, according to Weir-Jones.

"It was a very aggressive response," Weir-Jones said. "The challenge that security tools always have is they always end up being a bit too complicated and a bit too user-unfriendly, and we really wanted to focus on making this tool accessible."

Weir-Jones could not disclose the number of preorders received but did say Blackphone anticipates selling 10 million phones in the next three to four years.
