The Spanish smartphone maker decided to quit this market after six years in the business, but they plan to focus on wearables from now on.

Spanish company Geeksphone was co-founded in early 2009 by 16-year old Javier Agüera and former musician Rodrigo Silva-Ramos, later becoming the first European brand to have an Android smartphone on the market. Unfortunately, they decided to leave the smartphone market behind and focus on wearables, but under the geeks!me banner.

According to the official press release, "the company has reached the end of a cycle" after the development of no less than six smartphones since its debut. Geeksphone customer technical support service will not go down, continuing to operate as usual. The entire community has access to the tools Geeksphone was legally able to spread and "new projects and future development will be in the hands of users" from now on.

While Geeksphone co-founder Maria Azola leaves the company and the engineering team moves to Silent Circle, the makers of the notorios Blackphone, Javier and Rodrigo carry on their work as geeks!me and their first product is expected to come out in a few months. This will be an activity bracelet that allows users to monitor their sexual activity and "to carry a healthier pace of life, in harmony with the environment."
