Solana sees sky high preorders for its second phone

Edition #95 - 20 JAN 2024

Solana Mobile is swinging for the stars after it announced a second, cheaper web3 phone phone dubbed “Chapter 2” earlier this week. While its first handset, Saga, sold out like a budding avalanche — slow at first, then all at once in the U.S. and European Union — its second device is selling out much faster to begin with, hitting 30,000 preorders in the first 24 hours after announcement.
