When Essential was first announced, there was a lot of hype as well as assumptions surrounding the business’s item, the Essential Phone. This is due to the reality that Andy Rubin lags Essential, where his experience with the Sidekick, as well as also being the father of Android, led to rather high assumptions.
Regrettably, the phone failed to meet the hype, but Essential did tease that they would be working on something different in the type of a tool known as Gem. However, it appears that if you were hoping to obtain your hands on Treasure someday, possibly, that will certainly no longer be feasible as Essential has revealed that they will be ceasing their operations and also closing down.
According to a statement made on the company’s website, “Our vision was to invent a mobile computing paradigm that more seamlessly integrated with people’s lifestyle needs. Despite our best efforts, we’ve now taken Gem as far as we can and regrettably have no clear path to deliver it to customers. Given this, we have made the difficult decision to cease operations and shutdown Essential.”
It is rather sad to see Essential go; however, to be fair, complying with the business’s release of the Essential Phone, we have not indeed seen anything else from them because. Additionally, given exactly how competitive the market is, we’re uncertain sitting by the sidelines for a couple of years did them any favors.
