Crack the Hack: The Boss Phone at CES

Security has become a huge selling point for devices over the years after hackers have infiltrated companies, cloud uploads, and other data systems.  Devices that can provide security for your business and yourself are becoming the best option to protect your data and files.  Briggs & Spriggs Inc. has followed into the same line offering its Boss phone that emphasizes security and privacy for its users.

The Boss phone offers a giant tablet sized 7-inch display with a HD 1920 x 1200 resolution.  The Boss is powered by a Mediatek octa-core processor that runs Android 5.0 Lollipop, 16GB storage, microSD support, 8-megapixel camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera,  global 4G LTE and 3G support, and a 3,000mAh battery that can power the device all day long.  The most impressive feature though is the Onion Router (Tor) that gave life to the company’s new phone by adding additional security encryption.

“The Boss phone will have rooted Tor encryption for your privacy,” the company says on Indiegogo.

The Boss Phone is being sold through its Indiegogo campaign, which has a $150,000 goal.  The handset price for the device starts at $275 for the “first responders,” and has a price that goes up to $355 for extra features.  If the device meets its funding goals, the Boss Phone should start shipping sometime in October 2015.
