    The Freedom 251 may never come to market as Ringing Bells seeks $7.4 billion in government funding
    It looks like the $4 smartphone was too good to be true. Ringing Bells has indefinitely postponed the launch of the Freedom 251 which they promised would make its retail debut on June 30. Due to a gap between the BOM (bill of materials) and the selling price of the phone, Ringing Bells is now asking for $7.4 billion in funding from the India government to "actualise the objective to cascade the availability and usage of smartphones all through the far reaches of our great nation."

    Translation: the Freedom 251 will never happen.
