PS.: Did you notice the little popup in the lower right corner saying “Fairphone 2 available now”?
There’s even a mini documentary style video in this blog post

Indeed no new blog post, but a VIDEO, which has been produced in connection of the london-design festival and was recently announced in a newsletter:
@rainer_zufall How do you do that??? Do you keep pressing F5 on the blog page?
Haha! This time it was just luck…
Just watched the video. I like how Bas compares an old phone to an oldtimer, which rises in value, when it ages.
Post can’t be empty.

There are actually two phones in the package
One is taking the pictures: the prototype with the blue cover and one is a real one, neatly packed in its own box, for the first customer
I hope the video came thru a bit; we were inside a huge warehouse and maybe the connection was spotty at times.

For gold, we are progressing with our goal to integrate Fairtrade gold in our supply chain for the Printed Circuit Board (PCB) of the Fairphone 2. In this blog post, we want to share the latest developments regarding the use of tungsten in the supply chain of Fairphone 2…
