The Blackphone is a new and innovative smartphone creation that claims to be the "world’s first smartphone to put privacy and control ahead of everything else."

With the recent news that the NSA has been collecting millions of text messages daily, the announcement of a new smartphone designed with protecting the users privacy could not have come at a better time. The Blackphone is being made by the Spanish manufacturer Geeksphone and features an Android-based operating system, as well as a "top performing processor." The central feature of the Blackphone is the ability to receive and make secure phone calls and text message and browse the Internet anonymously all via their skin ‘PrivatOS.’

The Blackphone will be officially revealed next month at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, with pricing expected to be announced then as well.
