The renders and video look great and this looks like a phone a lot of hard core Android fans might buy with the spec listing the way it looks. Right now the project only has $240 raised of it’s $75,000 goal. The most interesting part is why this crew decided to use GoFundMe instead of Kickstarter or Indiegogo. There really are no rules on GoFundMe for creators and the money could be used for just about anything. CEO Brandon Batiste has assured donors that they will receive all of their money back if the project isn’t funded or cannot be completed.
