Ditch the NSA with the security-centric 'Blackphone'

 Whether you've got something to hide or simply value your privacy, chances are you'd appreciate a simple handset that allows you to duck out from under the surveillance blanket.

The folks at Silent Circle, who ran a secure email service until last summer, have teamed up with Spanish smartphone maker Geeksphone to offer a smartphone that is at once secure and modern. Dubbed "Blackphone," the device runs on a "security-oriented" PrivatOS based on Android. Users will be able to download their favorite apps, place calls, text and video chat — with the security that some amorphous government entity isn't looking over their shoulder. You'll even be able to keep your activity anonymous through your own VPN.
