The best of both worlds.
“If anyone wants to talk to me, they can give me a call. Other forms of communication, for example email or social media, are available when I choose to use them – and via a linked device that allows me to use them more effectively.”
Petter Neby, founder of Punkt.
The MP02 is the first voicephone to offer a downloadable privacy feature that uses the Signal protocol to provide free, encrypted Internet-based calls and texts worldwide via Wi Fi or mobile data (subject to data charges). Signal provides vastly greater security compared to the widely-used encrypted alternatives, which exist primarily as tools for harvesting and selling valuable metadata (contacts lists, who communicated with whom, when it happened, etc.). In the Signal system, all metadata is encrypted.
The Signal system also adds group messaging and voice messages to the MP02.
Signal is provided by a non-profit foundation. To find out how to support the work that they are doing, click here.
“The MP02 builds on the paradigm shift of its revolutionary predecessor. From components to aesthetics, it’s an entirely new product inside and out – with a particularly striking contextual user interface.”
The body of the phone is reinforced with glass-fibre for maximum durability. The recessed screen is protected with Gorilla Glass.
