When you think of Pepsi, you probably think of, well, soda. But for its latest venture, the company is entering the competitive world of ... smartphones?
The Pepsi phone that was rumored (and later confirmed) back in October is getting closer to becoming a reality. Pepsi Co. has launched a crowdfunding campaign via a platform in China in order to manufacture two Android phones: the Pepsi Phone P1 and P1s.
The goal? Raise $468,000 by Dec. 3. And as of early Monday, they've gotten around $206,000.
