This was my thoughts, they have been burned quite hard with the Turing Phone and had to refund lots of pre-orders.

So to fund the existing Turing Phone project, they need a new outlandish headline grabbing kickstarter with an obviously short release date.

Que new kickstarter in 2020 with a phone made of unobtanium with quantum communication and dark matter powercell to finish off the Cadenza project.

Still missing the real world proof of the phone existence, they already start scamming for more. DeCadenza

I was hoping the family of Alan Turing intervened at some point. He has a great niece & nephew IIRC.

It's pretty disgusting that they're using his name for this and now quoting him on their spiel too.

Google alerts found a few stories around the web:

Firstpost plays it pretty straight, but allows for the possibility it's vaporware.

iGyaan (who?) gushes about it being a "rocket ship" -- can't tell if they're sarcastic.

Softpedia says Turing is "Pushing the market boundaries"

phonearena calls the specs "too ridiculous to believe" -- in the headline, no less.

Android Headlines -- which I'd never of heard before -- is a little more blunt: "A Smartphone Full of Lies".

Android Police is a little more charitable -- if being mentally ill is preferable to being a liar -- saying: "[Clinically insane] Turing announces phone with dual Snapdragon 830s, triple batteries, hydrogen fuel cell, other insane specs"

Looks like some smart commenter at Android Police knows that there really is something called a "T-Stop" and therefore "Triplet lens/T1.2" isn't a typo/malaprop.

Yes, there is such a thing as "T-Stop" and yes it's a typo, because who the hell lists that as a figure of merit of a lens without mentioning F-stop or anything else?

Isn't the whole article a typo ?

12GB of RAM? Pathetic, won't run 890 simultaneous instances of Opera on Alien Dalvik. I am out.

This probably sums up an entire "reason to exist"
justifying anything in the marketing of such devices:

Simply collect the names and contact information
of people who respond to such high prices
knowing now these are real people who have money
they are willing to part with.

That immediately implies this market audience
probably has more money under the mattress
they can be persuaded to spend in other markets.

Selling expensive vaporware builds an email list
worth Billion$.
