We sincerely wish that we had an alternative option here. We explored all possible avenues in an attempt to avoid any changes, but as a startup with exceedingly-slim margins, our current euro prices simply aren’t sustainable.
The company has said that only the prices of the smartphone will be increased in Europe, any accessories will be available at the same price when the new handset pricing comes into effect on the 25th of March.
