Essential phone (PH-1) hasn’t started shipping yet

The Essential PH-1 was officially unveiled back in May this year. Soon thereafter, Andy Rubin – Android co-creator and also the man behind the phone – said they plan to to ship out reservations “within 30 days.”

That deadline ended more than a week ago, and shipments for the $700 handset haven’t started yet.

What’s more, the company isn’t even replying to media queries on the reason behind the delay. If you are one of those who pre-ordered the device, the only thing you can do currently is wait. Needless to say, we’ll provide an update as an when we get to know more on the matter.
