New OEM Linshof shuts down before shipping anything

Linshof, a new Android startup that had made its existence known only a few weeks ago, is shutting down before ever getting a product out the door. The company says that their investors decided to close the project for unspecified reasons. Linshof had originally announced their intention to release a number of devices based on Android 5.0 Lollipop.

When it first appear, Linshof announced both a smartphone and tablet. Both would have been large, octagonal devices, running on an unnamed octa-core processor. At the time, Linshof had said that the devices were planned for an early-2015 release. The company never opened pre-orders for either the phone or the tablet.
