"Blackphone, the much-ballyhooed collaboration between anti-NSA encryption powerhouse Silent Circle, and Geeksphone, a company owned by a former tech prodigy, has begun shipping around the world. The initial inventory has already sold out.
While security-conscious phones have been sold in the past, the idea took off after the revelations of global NSA surveillance leaked by former security agent Edward Snowden.
According to its makers, Blackphone, which sports a minimalist design and uses a custom Android-based OS, offers ‘an unparalleled product ideal for information workers, executives, public figures, and anyone else unwilling to give up their privacy.’"
