Geeksphone and Silent Circle launched the Blackphone back in June for $629 USD, but without any hardware specs to justify this price. This smartphone was designed with the focus on privacy as it runs PrivatOS, a modified version of Google's Android KitKat. This custom mobile operating system provides encrypted voice/video calls and messaging, as well as anonymous search, secure VPN connectivity, secure cloud storage and private browsing.

Silent Circle co-founder Jon Callas revealed  in an interview with BBC Newsbeat that "we are going to have a tablet soon." He also said the NVIDIA Tegra 4i-powered Blackphone sales exceeded the expectations, although this is a niche product with limited appeal.

Although it is obvious that Silent Circle has been working on Blackphone's tablet-size sibling for a while, its price, availability, features and specs are all secret for the time being. We will get back to the Silent Circle-made secure slate as soon as we hear more about it. In the meantime, feel free to enjoy the Blackphone introductory video below.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
