I pondered recently on our Anchor station about why Essential had been so mum of late since their initial pomp and circumstance at the Code Conference announcing their PH-1 mobile device. It turns out that perhaps the reason behind why things have been under wraps is due to some turmoil at the top – this report from 9to5Google claims that Essentials VP of Marketing left the organization effective Friday, July 14th. This comes after their head of communications also left earlier in July.
Chaos at the top line of your offices probably could come at a better time, since carrier launches with Sprint in the United States and Telus in Canada were expected soon, with a rumored partnership with another UK carrier in the works. We are very much interested in the Essential phone’s release and will follow up on additional news as it becomes available.
