PuzzlePhone’s Indiegogo campaign concluded in December, and since then we’ve been silent – but not inactive! And we’re not remaining silent anymore. This is the first of many blog posts to come.
Our intent is to keep you current on PuzzlePhone’s journey from the drawing board to your pocket. It’s an amazing R&D story, a story of reshoring, of proving that Europe isn’t that sleepy little hamlet people (well, those in Silicon Valley) think it is.
At least no one around here in Finland is sleeping. In fact, together with an awesome team of European R&D all-stars, we’re blazing the trail for Industry 4.0. Who’s on the PuzzlePhone team?
Physical tests at Grant4Com facilities in Oulu.
Driving all that R&D is our UK-based CPO, Julian Swan and CTO, Ben May who share the dream of better hardware. Ben has declared that he’s “fed up with the constant throughput of disposable equipment” in his life. Now he’s leading the team that will bring an end to the disposable nature of smartphones.
So follow us in this blog. Follow our journey as our great team brings PuzzlePhone from the drawing board to your pocket. As our CEO Alejandro Santacreu puts it: “We are a startup that is designing, engineering and assembling a new smartphone in Europe! How unlikely is that?”
Unlikely, sure. But it’s happening. Track the progress right here. In our next episode we take a closer look at the development process and timelines.
The Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign main purpose was to test the market interest so we can better finetune the PuzzlePhone. Now we have a better knowledge of the market dynamics related to the PuzzlePhone and will incorporate this in the development.
We will keep you all updated here, in the newsletter and trough our social media channels.

Upgradeable, sustainable, incredible!
