Awhile back, Geekphone and Silent Circle released the BlackPhone which featured average specs at the price of USD$629 (MYR2070). What was so unique about the phone? The operating system it ran on. The headset ran on a modified version of Android known as PrivatOS. The headset came out of the box pre-loaded with security-minded features like encrypted text messaging, encrypting voice and video calling, private browsing and anonymous search.
BlackPhone was so much of a hit that now the co-founder of SilentCircle, Jon Callas has revealed via an interview with BBC Newsbeat that the company is working on a privacy tablet as a successor to the BlackPhone. According to Callas, “Blackphone as it is, is our first device not our last device”.
As privacy and security information is at its height of importance, the tablet might just be a bigger success than its predecessor. What do you think about a follow up device to the BlackPhone?
