Fairphone: Anyone heard of it?

This is the first I’ve heard of Fairphone and, alas, it is only available in Europe at the moment, but I think it’s a really neat concept.

I would love to see a company like Republic Wireless make this their next handset, or at least something like it. Be sure to watch the well produced video near the bottom of the page.

Its specs are not exactly an HTC One or Galaxy S4 but, I think, generally respectable for a mid-range phone.

So what do you think? Is this a concept that will take off or is it dead before it even gets off the ground?
