Meet the Boss Phone: the "world's first 7-inch dual-SIM Tor smartphone"
posted by Florin T. / Jan 05, 2015, 7:23 PM
Called Boss Phone, the new device is based on Android 5.0 Lollipop, and certainly looks more like a tablet than what you’d usually consider to be a phone. As for Tor, this is a free software that enables online anonymity and, according to the creators of the Boss Phone, it “provides elite level protection against hackers, malicious third parties, and private data collection by corporations.”
The Boss Phone will offer a 7-inch display with 1280 x 1920 pixels, LTE connectivity, dual SIM capabilities, 8 MP rear camera, 2 MP front-facing camera, 16 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 3000 mAh battery. An octa-core MediaTek processor is at the heart of the huge handset.
The start-up behind the Boss Phone didn’t appear out of nowhere. Back in 2013, it released a tablet called Neo3Do (which is still available to buy via retailers like Amazon).
You can get yourself a Boss Phone for as low as $275 if you’re among the first 50 contributors to the Indiegogo campaign (see the source link below). All devices should be shipped starting October, assuming that the threshold funding level of $150,000 is reached before March 2.
What do you think? Would you feel like a boss (we assume you know about this meme) using the Boss Phone?

Someone ran out of ideas and thought bigger would be better. A total waste. Who would be this peice of garbage. Nobody is going to buy a tablet phone as a daily driver for a phone. unless your bigfoot.

IT IS FAKE Phone Arena, please get your facts straight before making headlines, especially when it's about indiegogo this is another scam from indiegogo. the phone already exists and it's Chinese and it's way way cheaper. it's name is Chuwi VX3 just google it

A more accurate critique is that the device has yet to be made, and its feature set is stated in the campaign. In the event the Indiegogo campaign exceeds its threshold of $150,000 the device will be launched. The Boss Phone is a 7 inch phablet, based on the soon to be released Mediatek MTK6595 4G LTE chip-set, including dual SIM cards, unlocked to serve as a replacement for either a phone and tablet, phone and e-reader or phone and laptop. We will also include Tor installed correctly at the root level to allow users the benefit of online privacy afforded by Tor. Once a final production version is available to submit to the Guardian Project it will be evaluated and may or may not receive approval / certification. No promises or operational definitions have been promised or presented by the makers of the BOSS Phone beyond those clearly set forth in the video and text of their Indiegogo campaign.
