Blackphone ships to first batch of customers

Geeksphone and Silent Circle came up with the brilliant idea of building a super secure smartphone running on Google's Android OS. The result was Blackphone and it made headlines in January this year.

SGP Technologies, the joint venture of Geeksphone and Silent Circle, was then established to commercialize the phone. Pre-orders began in February, with the goal of shipping the first orders in June.

Today, SGP Technologies is announcing that it has already shipped the first batch of orders to lucky pre-order customers. The company did not reveal how many units were shipped.

SGP Technologies will begin selling the next batch of Blackphones next month, July 14th to be exact.

The Blackphone was ranked in the top ten list of the best products at Mobile World Congress 2014. It is also the 2014 Red Herring Europe Top 100 Winner.

The Blackphone is the first smartphone in the world to prioritize user privacy. Running PrivatOS, a security-enhanced Android build, the Blackphone is packed with advanced security features including remote wipe, secure file transfer and storage, secure search and browsing, secure voice/ video/ text, and a slew of third-party security services.

The phone has a 4.7-inch display, a 2GHz quad-core processor, a 1GB RAM, and a 2,000mAh battery. At $629, the Blackphone sits at the premium end of the smartphone market.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
