"Blackphone" wants to let users chat, text, and talk Sans NSA Snooping

КSilentCircle and Geeksphone have announced a new smartphone that is in the works designed to give users privacy. The device is called Blackphone and it is built using a version of Android tweaked for privacy called PrivatOS.

PrivatOS is carrier and vendor independent. The OS promises secure phone calls, texts, secure transfers and storage of files. It also promises to support secure video chat as well.

"I have spent my whole career working towards the launch of secure telephony products," said Phil Zimmermann, creator of PGP. "Blackphone provides users with everything they need to ensure privacy and control of their communications, along with all the other high-end smartphone features they have come to expect."

Blackphone has a website set up to allow people interested in the device to sign up for updates as the launch of the device nears. The Blackphone is set to hit pre-order on February 24 at MWC in Spain. It’s unclear how much the phone will cost at this time.
