A new report claims to have some information on a startup called Wonder. The company is apparently working on a gaming-themed smartphone and counts actor Kevin Spacey among its investors.
At the moment, the official Wonder website is pretty bare bones, with an astronaut helmet logo and a "Coming Soon" label, along with an email address signup bar to get more updates as they are revealed. TechCrunch says it has a little more information on Wonder's plans:
According to sources close to the team, Wonder plans to create a smartphone for gamers. Apparently the goal is to build an object so futuristic, it becomes a style icon, starting conversations wherever users go.
The article adds that some of the other investors in Wonder include Atari founder Nolan Bushnell, former NBA Commissioner David Stern and former Facebook COO Owen Van Natta. Wonder currently has a 30-person team and it just hired Tyler Carper, who worked as VP of Engineering at both HTC and more recently Cyanogen:
Carper says "I love the idea of innovating and disrupting the fast changing environment around mobile technology and entertainment. It's one of the biggest consumer market opportunities in the world", implying a gaming-focused phone is indeed Wonder's product.
