ADAIA CEO Heikki Sarajärvi commented: “When I destroyed my fourth smartphone last year while sailing, I knew there was a need for a durable smartphone capable of weathering the toughest environments. Bringing Jeb’s talent onto the team to put our handset through its paces is vital to our business”
He added: “The ADAIA smartphone will be super valuable in far-flung corners of the world for the abilities to stay in touch and communicate through social platforms but also for safety reasons. It could be the difference between living and dying in a remote location.”
