I’m not German, but I’m in contact with Germans that I could have informed of the Mobilcom-Debitel launch. I don’t understand why there was no other communication about this partnership (blog, was there anything on Twitter)?
We did indeed first do a soft-launch as the Fairphone 2 was only available on their website. From today (!) the Fairphone is also in their stores. We’re finalizing the press release at this very moment and will release it today or on Monday, announcing this partnership.
Also note that they didnt start selling in october, they are only starting now… but they made a press release congratulating us for the german environmental award and announcing that it will be available.
Many thanks for this very useful option. I am a bit surprised of how many locations are already there where (potential) customers can come close to a Fairphone. Approaches against staying a niche product are vital I think.
There is an incorrectness though concerning the location of the “Mobilcom Debitel” shop in Ludwigsburg.
The address is correct, but the location shown is wrong. “Kirchstrasse” may also have phone shops, but corresponding to the given street name “Heinkelstrasse” the location must be pointing more to the north-west. I believe the store is located in a large shopping mall called “Breuninger Land” which would be at least more than 5 Kilometers away from “Kirchstrasse”.
Thank you Patrick! I dragged it to the shopping mall location (which is the correct address). Let me know if you spot any other inconsistencies: google maps does some strange stuff reading locations sometimes, especially with shopping mall addresses.
Oh disappointment! I thought it would be a map of the phone and tell me how to use it. I have had mine for 10 months and still find it hard to work my way round, - its my first smart phone and I am prob. an elderly user. Oh well. I will keep on learning and trying. Good luck with sales.
I may have the very first FP2 un North America!
I was part of the preordered ones, received it just before Christmas last year, and went to Canada right after.
