The FINNEY phone came out today at a launch event in Barcelona. The $999 phone is the first of its kind, integrating blockchain technology at its core in order that its users may can securely use blockchain products. The product aims to address issues that cryptonaughts face in mobile computing, particularly those related to securely transacting, and it is the latest in a projected long line of offerings from the makers of SOLARIN.
The phone runs on SirinOS, which is a fork of Android with the express intention of more deeply integrating blockchain capabilities and a decentralized application (“dApp”) marketplace. It sports a secondary screen called a “safe screen” which is two inches in size and allows the user to securely access a built-in cold storage wallet. In shape and design, it is not unlike the SOLARIN.
