Why should users want to have a Blackphone?
At $629, Weir-Jones said the Blackphone is the total package.
"We don't think anyone is offering the whole package the way we are. It's not really a matter of opinion. Your next options up are maybe three or four times the price, and severely more limited," he said. "Making and receiving phone calls, sending and receiving texts, using apps and browsing websites, all these things they can still do on Blackphone. The difference now is that under the covers, theirs a whole lot of security magic, which is going to help them retain that control of what information leaks out."
