Geeksphone, the Spanish handset maker, recently announced plans to exit the hardware business. Geeksphone made several handsets, including a Firefox OS phone and the secure Blackphone. Earlier this year, Geeksphone sold the Blackphone hardware business to Silent Circle, its partner in the secure phone endeavour. The company developed a total of six phones and said it sold several thousand handsets since its 2009 launch. The company is breaking up and its executives are headed in several different directions. "When we started the Geeksphone project, we never imagined that we would develop six smartphones in just five years," said Rodrigo Silva-Ramos, Geeksphone's Co-Founder. "We are very grateful and proud of having achieved so many professional and personal success and, above all, we are extremely proud to have received great recognition from both the industry and the users."
