Hi Fans,
We wanted to share with you some media quotes about NuAns NEO!

  • "...it seems like one of the more original Windows Phone handsets thanks to its unique design. If you're interested in this customizable Windows Phone then you'll need to back the Kickstarter campaign to secure one."-THE VERGE

  • ?Unlike many other 3rd party Windows 10 Mobile handsets the Nuans Neo is a truly unique handset, featuring a unique design with its own style, but also specs powerful enough to power Continuum for phones.?-MSPoweruser

  • "This kind of innovation?and to be clear, rethinking how a phone works is both innovative and very much in keeping with the original goals of Windows phone?should be reworded.

I'm curious why NuAns needs to raise funds to launch a phone that already exists. I would think that since the phone is already manufactured and being sold, it shouldn't be that difficult to launch it in other countries. Is NuAns so small that $725,000 is an insurmountable amount for them? That should be pocket change for most manufacturers.

Kickstarters are often done by very small companies or even a person or two who have an idea. In this case the phone already exists and is being sold, and they're trying to sell it outside the launch country.

I'm sure there's a good reason; I would just be interested in hearing it. Maybe there's something else that could be done besides contributing funds.

Either way, it is disappointing the way the campaign went. I thought there might be better support. I think NuAns will have to do something distinguished with the NEO more than a 2-tone cover.
