Mobile Bills May Get Shorter if NEBI.MOBI Can Crowdfund $50K on Indiegogo

ATLANTA, Aug. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- NEBI.MOBI is born as an expression of frustration with the innovation preventive and uncompetitive nature of wireless carrier industry. It aims to force the mobile network operators in a new direction thanks to the recent advancements of some key technologies. Implementing these VoIP and WiFi technologies in a compatibly built custom smartphone model is not a cheap venture, but it could lower monthly cellular bills from $100+ to only $5.

The project's team leader, Nebi Cem Erdogan, is a serial entrepreneur with some impressive credentials. Columbia University transferred him with scholarships while he was studying advanced physics in Turkey. His professional studies then continued with a focus on strategy and innovation at the MIT Sloan School of Management in Boston. He was most recently working for the largest mobile chip manufacturer in the world, Qualcomm, when they moved him to Atlanta for his help in mobile payments strategy, and he subsequently started working on his NEBI.MOBI project.

"In order to succeed, we had to get over multiple barriers, some of which were set intentionally by the current ecosystem players," said Mr. Erdogan. Inspired by how Tesla forced automobile manufacturers' hands into making more electric cars, NEBI.MOBI team came up with an action plan to revolutionize the entire wireless service industry. Mr. Erdogan's attorney wife, Eve Erdogan, summarizes their motives saying, "We are an activist startup who is motivated to put an end to the greedy profits of a handful elite companies."

The team first had to make a very low cost smartphone with very high-end tech specs list, which was extra difficult for low production volumes. Resulted EVE 008 model is extremely powerful to run the hardware demanding VoIP apps, while its $149 retail price is still affordable enough without a contract.

Second challenge was reducing the battery consumption of WiFi connections. Placing a giant 2,000 mAh battery, and adding 1.3 GHz quad-core processor with 1GB RAM was helpful, but adjustments to the Android power management was necessary, too.

After a lengthy as much as costly FCC approval process, and coding an advanced Android VoIP app with complementing standards, NEBI.NOBI is now looking to deploy its WiFi based, cellular tower backed, hybrid data coverage nationwide; however an initial subscriber base is necessary to bring the economies of scale to its phone service. Therefore, their crowdfunding campaign is about creating a community of supporters and distributing the devices with right technology to potential service subscribers as much as it is about raising the necessary financial resources.

Mr. Erdogan says they make smartphones for smarter people because of his confidence that people are smarter than what other mobile operators might like to think.
