Blackphone Is Now Shipping, and it’s Expensive.

For those of you that are paranoid and have quite a lot of money to spend the Blackphone is now available. The Blackphone runs PrivatOS, a forked version of Android, and comes pre-installed with Silent Phone, Silent Text and Silent Contacts apps as well as a remote wipe feature just in case it does get stolen.

Though the phone aims to be private, most of the phones features can be applied to other Android phones too, but the company behind it have admitted that it wont stop the government snooping on you if they really wanted to.

The Blackphone is available for $629 although initial stock has sold out right now. The site suggest checking back soon for more information of future availability. The phone boasts a 4.7″ HD IPS Screen, 2 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 4i CPU, 1GB LPDDR3 RAM, 16 GB Storage, 8MP AF rear camera and 5MP front facing camera.

The Black Phone can be ordered from the companies site which can be found here.

To keep up to date follow us on twitter here and me here.

It came to our attention that the phone we were discussing was the Blackphone by SGP Technologies and not the Boeing, The Boeing Black Smartphone, the article has since been amended to reflect that information. This wasn’t my fault. Blame the editor, he’s the idiot.

This isn’t a phone by Boeing. You’re an idiot.

Crap, you’re right! It seems I got a little mixed up with Boeings Black Smartphone – http://www.boeing.com/boeing/defense-space/ic/black/index.page, my bad. The article has been corrected.

This article is talking about two different phones, the one link near the top is about Boeing, the rest seems to be about the blackphone available for public purchase which the Boeing is not. The article has not been corrected, the word Blackphone in the first sentence still mentions Boeing when you click it.

You’re right, link removed. I think I left my brain elsewhere today. Thanks for the comment.

Yeah your calling people paranoid but you probably would have said that about people who might have thought the government was spying on the internet before Snowden disclosed what was really going on within the NSA.
