They successfully released the Elephone Trunk, and then Elephone Ivory. The latter we declined to review due to the controversial nature of the naming scheme; if you search ‘Ivory’ on Google images, the first images that come up won’t be huge, beautiful mammals, but piles of Elephant tusks.

We reached out to Elephone marketing lead, Jiao Longwei, and let him know about the poor choice of ‘Ivory’ for a model name. Jiao Longwei eventually agreed, but the boxes and marketing materials had already been printed. He stated, “In the future, we will make this up to our fans.”.

Now two months later we had another chance to chat with Jiao Longwei over Skype:

Jiao said (edited for grammar), “This is our way of making up for our previous insensitive mistake. To our fans, please try to not look at the model name, but at the quality we bring to our fans. We are now donating 10% of all net from our new models: Elephone Poo and Elephone Dung to elephant conservation in India and Thailand. We hope you will support us and buy Elephone Poo, and don’t forget Elephone Dung, the Lite version of Elephone Poo.”

let’s hope Poo and Dung are solid releases

If you’re looking for a stylish, bio-degradable mobile, there’s no better time than now to snatch one up.

We’re impressed with how Elephone turned themselves around and released Elephone P8000; let’s hope Poo and Dung are solid releases as well.
