It's tough to find just the right mix of privacy and productivity on a smartphone today. Apostrophy has arguably come the closest to bringing compatibility and security together with their partitioned approach, dividing their OS into a secure "Domus" and an unrestricted "Piazza."
When it comes to mobile operating systems Android and iOS dominate. And anyone else who tried (BlackBerry, Palm, even Windows) never captured enough of the market to stay viable. So what makes Apostrophy do it in 2024? After two weeks of testing, there's some promise in this new OS.
AphyOS is a privacy-focused, subscription-based mobile operating system developed by Swiss startup Apostrophy AG, offering an alternative to dominant tech giants like Apple and Google in the mobile OS landscape.
The Punkt MC02, a smartphone known for its minimalist design and privacy-focused features, is available for pre-order as of November 2023, with expected shipping in early January 2024, offering an alternative to the noise and distractions of traditional smartphones.

If you don't know what that means or why you should care you have a little catching up to do. Don't worry. I've got you covered. Here's the click hole you need to go down: Read this. Then this. Then get your credit...
If you've taken a walk on the minimalist side like some folks in the CrackBerry Forums have and added the BlackBerry Secured Punkt MP02 to your device collection, you can now download the first update of the MP02's firmware.
Punkt let everyone know ahead of time they would be officially unveiling and announcing their MP02 4G mobile phone on September 17 and now that that day is here, they've revealed the full specs, features and opened up pre-orders.
