Geeksphone and Silent Circle today announced new details of their privacy-oriented Blackphone. The phone includes LTE, a 4.7-inch screen, 16 GB of storage, and 2 GB of RAM. The Android-based PrivatOS software not only offers secure calling, text and data, but also comes with software for secure video calling, anonymous web search, secure file exchange, and secure conference calling. Special software controls the Wi-Fi radio to expose the phone only to trusted networks and devices. Each phone includes two years of these Silent Circle services, and one year of "friends and family" service for up to three people, which enables secure communication with other people with standard Android or iOS phones. Pre-orders start today, with shipment estimated for June. It is fully unlocked and priced at $629.
