Designed with the 21st century in mind.
“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’s minimalist operating system is hardened against attacks. Coupled with the fact that it is not designed around its owner entering sensitive personal information like bank details, private images, etc., this is a phone built for autonomy in the 21 st century.
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). We believe 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.
By using the Signal-protocol, it is possible to add 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.
Easy to hold and use – with real buttons. Remains cool during extended use.
Monochrome+ (black, white and occasional red). Unusually, it is text-based. Click through in seconds.
Up, down, select, go. Quick to learn, easy to use. Dedicated Contacts and SMS buttons for instant access.
Voice communication via VoLTE. Internet access available to secondary devices via WiFi/Bluetooth/USB.
T9 keypad as a backup to phone calls: texting with threaded messaging, MMS receipt/display and distinctive monochromatic ideograms.

Pigeon is compatible with the Signal system which uses VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) technology to make phone calls and exchange text messages. The connection is made via an Internet connection, either Wi-Fi or a phone’s mobile data service. It is free to use (subject to standard data charges that may apply),and interacts with the Signal app which is available as a free download for almost all smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktop computers.
Send and receive encrypted Pigeon messages on your computer, or tablet, with contacts on Signal.
Apostrophy is the Swiss-based company that provides the MP02s secure operating system. It has recently launched a fully encrypted email, contacts, and calendar service. Fee-based: no user data is sold.
As the saying goes, “If you are using a tech company’s services without paying them a fee, you are not the customer. You are the product.”
The reason that personal data fetches such high prices is that it is a path to power, a route to ownership. Switching to paid-for tech services is an essential step towards autonomy in this era of internal surveillance. Apostrophy uses Swiss-based servers that are covered by Switzerland’s stringent data protection laws.
DailyView is intentionally simple, designed as an alternative to jotting down a few notes on a piece of paper. Essential information is readily available, without the user being drawn into a distraction episode.

That was in 2013, and since then the company (trading as Danny P.) has expanded to produce a range of luxury leather goods that sell across the world – all hand crafted in their small factory in the Czech Republic, some 70 miles south east of Prague.read more
