But if Keyssa actually contributed nothing, then that's exactly how they should be compensated: nothing.

We'll have to let the courts decide, there's too much that we don't know.

Google. Always Complicated.

It seems like Keyssa is on the right side of this. Seems like Essential went all out disregarding fair practices. Which sucks.

Anonymous, 16 Oct 2017"cough" Motorola "cough" Motorola's accessories actually transmit their data through the series of pins, which is why it has so many of them. It's very different in the way Essential's phone works. The two pins on the back of the Essential PH1 are simply for accessory placement/orientation. All communication is done via wireless connections.
