If the entire earlier “information” popping out of the corporate wasn’t deturing sufficient for you, this is any other bankruptcy within the Turing Robot Industries saga: it has now filed for chapter in Finland. The corporate, which began through promising an ultra-secure smartphone in 2015 with Android five.1 however became round and made up our minds on Sailfish OS as an alternative, most effective to stay on delaying manufacturing over and over then promise one outrageous improve after the opposite, has, strangely, run out of price range. Gasp.
The inside track got here on February three from Finnish newspaper Salon Seudun Sanomat, which used to be following Turing and its CEO Steve (Syl) Chao’s growth in Salo, Finland, a town that used to be promised a resurrection of varieties after Nokia’s dying and the place Turing had rented an empty warehouse for tens of 1000’s of euros. SSS‘s document mentioned that collectors filed a declare with the corporate in 2017 and the entire corporate’s movable assets has been seized.
However that isn’t the tale Steve Chao would really like you to imagine. In a put up on Fb, he claims that the chapter doesn’t suggest the corporate goes into bankruptcy (which is technically true), it simply needs to droop its operations in Salo.
Expensive TRI consumers and fans,
A contemporary information about TRI’s Salo corporate submitting for chapter will have despatched an uneasy feeling to a few of you. We wish you to understand that this submitting used to be initiated to quickly droop our production intentions in Salo, on the other hand it doesn’t suggest that TRI is bankrupt. We will be able to be posting the most recent traits regarding the way forward for TRI within the coming weeks.
And as though submitting for chapter then claiming the whole lot is just right isn’t delusional sufficient, any other document from SSS this morning says that the relentless Chao is adamant about TRI now not being in debt and him now not transferring operations out of Salo. As a substitute, he is putting in place a brand new corporate within the town along with his usual companions Karri Suosara and Ilkka Matinpalo beneath the title Turing Robot Industries Kepler. You would suppose it does not get any higher till the acronym could be TRIK.
Change identify: As TRI is Finnished, Chaos reigns and guarantees Turing issues round in any other mind-bending TRIK
