I have written before about a “blackphone” with Silent Circle software installed. See http://goo.gl/4mXV9M to read my earlier article. Now the same company has announced two new devices, along with a suite of software and services intended to lock down both private and work communications. These devices should block any spies from accessing your private data and communications.
The Blackphone 2 is scheduled to be released in July and will, like its predecessor, cost just over $600. The company said the phone would offer faster performance, longer battery life and would be easier for company technology managers to configure. A tablet called the Blackphone+ will be released in the fall, but its price has not been specified.
