Privacy-encrypted Blackphone will hide you in the shadows

You're being watched right now. Every keystroke is being recorded. Your coffee mug has been bugged. And your cat, Prof. Bojangles, has been a double agent since the day you 'conveniently' found him abandoned on your doorstep.

If these are the sort of thoughts that run through your head on a daily basis then the Blackphone is the super-secretive smartphone for you.

Running a modified version of Android called PrivatOS, Geeksphone promises a top-performing processor and compatibility with networks in all countries worldwide.
