Andy Rubins telefon floppar

Andy Rubins telefon floppar

Andy Rubins ”Essential Phone” är en flopp och det har bara sålts 5000 telefoner sedan lanseringen. Det motsvarar det antal telefoner som Apple säljer på lite drygt 20 minuter.

Uppgifterna kommer från Fierce Wireless som gjort en uppskattning utifrån siffror som kommer från teleoperatören Sprint.

Essential Products has sold an estimated 5,000 phones through Sprint since the gadget made its big retail debut in the United States earlier this month, according to estimates from BayStreet Research. That figure would put Essential well below market heavyweights like Apple and Samsung, which typically sell tens of millions of phones per quarter in the United States.

BayStreet tracks shipments of phones and other devices across the United States. Essential representatives didn’t respond to requests for comment on the BayStreet estimates.

Värdering

Trots floppen så värderas bolaget som utvecklat telefonen, till 1.2 miljarder dollar.
