What’s really important in the end about the Blackphone is that it has made the idea of a privacy-focused phone a reality—and it opens a conversation about what security technology can do for average people. And if it brings enough people into the conversation, the next generation of the Blackphone, and of mobile security products in general, could reach a much wider audience—and perhaps force some of the bigger mobile players to pay more attention to privacy.
It’s about what I expected: good at privacy not great at the “other” phone stuff. I do like the above quote because it is what I hope happens. I hope that this phone pushes Apple to make their phones even more secure.
Side note: How did these guys miss a prime opportunity to color their UI with green text on a black background? It’s like they’ve never seen a hacker movie.
