    It is being reported that Essential is canceling their next phone and the company is now for sale. I am a bit disappointed to see it go. I guess only selling 150k phones can put a damper on things. It had potential and maybe the buyer will carry on. I wonder who sold more phones, Essential or Amazon Fire?

    This isn't surprising. It's so hard to compete in the smart phone category these days. It seems like a two horse race now (Samsung + Apple).

    The big question is who would want to purchase the company?

    That was predictable after 88k sales. Was a failure from the start if you ask me.
