WhartonBrooks launches Cerulean Moment crowdfunding campaign for Brazil

After kicking off a crowdfunding campaign in the U.S. for its Cerulean Moment Windows 10 Mobile phone, WhartonBrooks has now launched a Brazilian campaign as well. Available at Brazilian crowdfunding site Kickante, the campaign is seeking funding totaling R$5,850,000 (nearly $2 million USD).

WhartonBrooks initially fully revealed the Cerulean Moment, its first smartphone, in late March before launching its an initial crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. That campaign is still active, though it has only managed to raise around $23,000 of its $1.1 million goal with 19 days left. The Kickante campaign only just launched, but it has so far raised R$14,810 with 39 days left to go.

Everything you need to know about the WhartonBrooks 'Cerulean Moment'

The Cerulean Moment itself is based on the design of the Coship Moly W5, featuring a 5-inch display, a 1.5GHz Snapdragon SoC, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage. The rear camera is a 13MP shooter, while the front-facing camera comes in at 5MP. The reception to the moment has been mixed to say the least, and funding is currently far short of its goal. That said, WhartonBrooks is hopeful its crowdfunding initiatives will get it off the ground and in the hands of backers.

If you want to peruse the crowdfunding campaigns and potentially back the moment, you can find it on Indiegogo and Kickante now.
