Blackphone, a secure smartphone

June 30, 2014
Based on the Android mobile OS, Blackphone offers a secure operating system paired with key applications to provide a secure environment for phone calls, texts, and file storage.

According to the review, it appears to function well enough as designed for a secure device but not so much if you expect to use it as a normal smartphone with apps and games, etc.  Which makes sense to me, if you're buying a device to be used as a secure smartphone.  Do you really want to negate the $620 price for a secure smartphone, only to load Facebook and other crap on it anyways?
