Indiegogo’s Trust and Safety team has closed the campaign for the Frank. phone.
The company’s premise was to provide an affordable alternative to the flagship phones. The phone itself was tracked down to be a Chinese ODM design and Frank admitted that each unit costs $150 to produce. Consumer prices ranged from $180 for an early bird perk tier to $280 for a proposed final retail price.
On a recent Pocketnow Weekly podcast, CEO Fahd Alhattab told us that Indiegogo had offered an incentive package with frontpage opportunities and other marketing tools that competing site Kickstarter would not have offered.
Frank Technologies does not have access to the campaign and backers will not be charged.
