FreedomPop the budget-based wireless carrier, has offered access to its network with smartphones that were not made specifically for the service. That will change in 2016, as FreedomPop plans to release its own branded smartphone designed to work with the carrier.
Re/code reports that FreedomPop's phone will have a processor made by Intel. FreedomPop CEO Stephen Stokols said that the phone itself will be made by a well-known name in that market but did not reveal the specific company:
FreedomPop is currently available in the US and UK, and offers users a small amount of talk and data time for free per month, and charges for additional time. It also offers access to over 10,000 Wi-Fi hotspots for $5 a month.
