Yota E-Ink phone going into production

We posted back in December about the Yota Android phone that would have 2 screens. A colour display on the font and a E-Ink display on the rear. According to Android Authority this device is now set to go into production.

Now the company has announced that it has signed a deal with Singapore Hi-P to manufacture the phone. Hi-P is a fast growing Tier 1 contract manufacturer that specializes in wireless telecommunications and consumer electronics.

Along with the new production deal, Yota Devices also announced that it is establishing an R&D and Asian sales office in Singapore. This makes sense since that is where the phone will be made and it will make it easier for the company to iron out any production issues. With the production deal signed and a new office in Asian, it is expected that the phone will be ready for sale first, in Russia and then globally, in the second half of 2013.

We are keen to see this develop, so will be following the story as it develops.

About Jon

Constantly challenging opinions and looking for new opportunities, Jon develops the product ranges and business activities and very much strives to maintaining growth and taking Clove in to the future.

Never knowing when to stop, he spends too much time in the office! He's very organised; writes lists, reports, spreadsheets, you name it, he's on to it!! When he does relax, however, he can be found driving his pride and joy (his Range Rover Sport), walking his Dog, down the pub or at a local restaurant. He does too like the finer things in life and often lives beyond his means, only the best hotels will do.

    How do I quite getting these emails and cancel anything from Clove. It’s filling up my email and can’t tolerate it anymore. I don’t want anything else thru my email regarding Clove. I’m not unhappy just don’t have the time to devote to all this.

    This phone is a great idea. I use Anquet maps on my galaxy S2 and of course the problem is the battery drain from the screen and the GPS. I cannot stop the GPS when out hiking, but if I can have the maps on the black and white screen then this would give me a longer life battery..
