Blackphone will supposedly be the first Android smartphone in the world to focus on privacy and control, and the device will be unveiled in Barcelona next month, at the Mobile World Congress (MWC). The Blackphone initiative is a joint international effort, co-founded by Spanish hardware manufacturer Geeksphone and Silent Circle, provider of various software solutions meant to protect users’ privacy. While no specific details are given at this point, the Blackphone will sport a “top performing” processor, an unlocked cellular module that will work with any GSM network in the world, and a “PrivatOS” skin on top of Android that will let users enjoy secure calls and text messages, and store files and connect to the Internet via anonymous VPNs.
