Dear Geeksphone users:
At Geeksphone we have been working for more than four years in order to expand the Company, always standing by our ideals, and therefore having to make difficult decisions. But certainly this week has been the hardest.
The Peak+ project started in May as an evolution of the Peak, which had garnered much success. We wanted to make a new device aimed to be a new evolution of our Peak model, improvig it thanks to your feedback, but maintaining continuity in terms of quality and philosophy.
Unfortunately, during the month of August 2013, very serious problems arose in the components' supply chain in Asia that have been impossible to avoid.
Although we expected a complex situation, the reality exceeded the worst scenario. This was compounded by the decline and cessation of activity (in domino effect) of numerous suppliers and other indepedent OEMs.
We adopted multiple measures in order to have confirmation from all suppliers to start production later this November.
But the current reality makes this situation no longer possible.
Despite that we have been able to stock up the scarcest components (ROM and RAM memories), our integrator (or EMS) has communicated us the complete cease of its activity.
Cellon Technologies was, up to date, one of the longest running and most reputable EMS/ODM in the industry. Nevertheless, and due to multiple internal problems, they have not been able to fulfill the responsibilities in which we placed our trust .
We have assesed other alternatives, but in the most optimistic scenario, manufacturing would not be possible until January 2014, even with the support of other Geeksphone's partners such as Foxconn or Quanta (EMS / ODM).
Therefore and despite our great efforts, we have decided that the most reasonable, honest and consistent decision is to cancel Peak+ manufacturing.
