WhartonBrooks attempt to raise $1.1 million from Windows Phone fans with rebranded Coship Windows Phone

WhartonBrooks has finally announced their first Windows 10 Mobile device and it is named ‘Cerulean Moment’.

The final official pictures reveal the device is a lightly rebranded Coship handset, which is a respectable mid-range device with Continuum for Phones support which was selling for $399 in mid-2016.

The Cerulean Moment is now selling for a much more affordable $290 a pop on Idiegogo where WhartonBrooks  is trying to raise $1.1 million in 30 days.  It comes with 5-inch 720P HD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor, 3GB RAM/32GB storage, 13MP/5MP rear/front cameras and 2250 mAh battery. It also comes with support for LTE and Dual SIM/Expandable storage slot. The display is protected by Gorilla Glass 3.

The 720P screen is still somewhat disappointing for a 2017 Windows Phone however. Surprisingly it lacks USB-C, with Continuum only available over wireless Actiontec streaming stick which is included for free.

The company appears to be making a play for the “committed windows phone fan”, of which they say they need only 3900.  Previous history suggests crowd-funded windows phones tend to fail well before reaching this number, but at least the $1.1 million funding is fixed, meaning WhartonBrooks will only receive the money if they actually reach the goal.

If you are interested in the device, you can order it on Indiegogo by backing them for $290.
