“Blackphone 2” Privacy-Oriented Phone and Tablet is Ready for Pre-order

Blackphone_2I wrote about the Silent Circle encryption software for cell phones last December at and briefly again in March at about the same company’s plan to sell a cell phone with the same voice encryption software already installed. Now the company is accepting orders with expected delivery in sometime in September.

One problem: the producing company has not yet announced the price. It is expected to be expensive, however.

The “Blackphone 2” will have a 5.5-inch 1080p display, an octa-core processor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. What makes it different from other phones with similar specs, though, is that it runs an Android-based platform called PrivatOS which includes a suite of secure apps, including ones for encrypted messaging and voice calls. With this cell phone, your private calls and messages will really remain private.
