I wrote about the Silent Circle encryption software for cell phones last December at http://goo.gl/4mXV9M and briefly again in March at http://goo.gl/r7x52E 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.
