The NSA debacle and the unearthing of PRISM surveillance program was nothing short of shock to many. There has been a see change in how technology is perceived since then. From Avatar OS to Blackphone, a host of new projects are keen to bring in a revolutionary change to the world of gadgets and technology. As they say, the only winners of the whole NSA debacle will be those companies that places privacy and security at the forefront.
Blackphone: The Smartphone from the future
The Blackphone is a smartphone developed by SGP Technologies, that will provide encryption for phone calls, emails, texts, and internet browsing. The primary features include the Silent Circle suite of applications, including Silent Phone, Silent Text, and Silent Contacts; anonymous search, private browsing, and VPN from Disconnect; and secure cloud file storage from SpiderOak. Blackphone's PrivatOS is built on top of Android, which apparently is the most popular mobile phone platform in the world, according to a recent study.
Blackphone went on sales a month ago and was sold-out in no time. New batch is up for sales right now at a sticker price of $629.00. Get it when you can.
