WhartonBrooks’ Windows Phone might not be released after all due to lack of funding
About a month ago, there were lots of rumors about the Cerulean Moment, a Windows 10 Mobile phone that was being developed by the company WhartonBrooks. It was billed a “the Windows phone for fans by fans” and had a lofty crowdfunding goal of raising $1.1 million in just 45 days.
Only two weeks left until the campaign ends
There are only two weeks left until the Cerulean Moment’s campaign ends, and WhartonBrooks is not even close to the point of transforming its goal into reality. CEO Greg Murphy started this campaign after an investor previously pulled support. After, the IndieGoGo page went up as a way to prove commercial interest from the Windows Phone market.
Cerulean Moment purchases
At first, this campaign seemed to go well. Unfortunately, even if the Windows phone is just in the prototype stage, the device was not able to drum up enough support. On the other hand, though, it did get its share of interest. Purchases ranged from the standard single device price of $290 all the way to a $5,600 bundle of 20 smartphones meant for business use. The Cerulean Moment eventually managed to get 100 backers with a current funding of $23,778 as of the time of this writing
Will funding stop for the Cerulean Moment?
It seems inevitable that the Cerulean Moment won’t be funded. The question remaining on everyone’s lips is if this will stop WhartonBrooks from pushing forward with this device.
