A Smartphone for Consumers Who Want Privacy
IF there’s a symbol for the idea that privacy is on people’s minds, it’s the Blackphone.
The Blackphone, which went on sale this week for $629, is billed as the first smartphone built solely with privacy and security in mind. It is definitely more secure than your average phone, but comes with trade-offs that most consumers might not need or enjoy. It’s probably best for reporters, dissidents and companies concerned with corporate security.
