1:12 /

Whether you're anti-establishment journalist, a tabloid-dodging celebrity or just someone who like a bit of privacy, the GeeksPhone Blackphone keeps you anonymous. Go off the grid with our hands-on video.

Ever feel that Big Brother is watching you? Then the GeeksPhone Blackphone could be for you. It's a new smartphone designed to have the absolute privacy safe from the prying eyes of those who would collect data on your behavior. So how does it do that? Well, the phone comes with a range of privacy features that keep you anonymous as you use it. For example unlike Google it doesn't gather data on the things that you search for. It dodges tracking by Wi-Fi hotspots when you're out and about and it comes with subscriptions to various privacy services but also come with subscriptions for your friends and family, so no matter what phone they have you can still chat securely. But what's it like as a phone? The Blackphone is a quad-core 4G phone with 2 gigabytes of RAM, a 4.7-inch HD screen, and 16 gigabytes of storage all powered by a heavily-customized open source version of Android. The GeeksPhone Blackphone is available to order now so you can start sticking it to the man immediately. For more on the coolest kit from Mobile World Congress check out CNET.com. I'm Richard Trenholm and I'm going off the grid.
