Turing's 'Dark Wyvern' up for preoder, comes with Armor case enabling 60GHz data transfers
If you have been following the Turing Phone you know the regular version of the device will begin shipping on December 11. We have given the Turing Phone the hands-on treatment and know what to expect from it, but Turing Robotic Industries is throwing in a little something extra for those of you who decide to purchase the Turing Phone Series II version, more commonly known as the “Dark Wyvern,” which is now available for pre-order.
Those who purchase the $999 Dark Wyvern will also receive the Turing Armor protective case. This may sound trivial, but wait until you hear the details around this case – it’s not your usual one. The company is highlighting the super fast data transfer technology, called Wind Tunnel, that comes integrated in this phone cover. The gadget is WiGig-enabled, which means it supports data transfers of about 3.2 GB in under 25 seconds. It can also back up 64 GB of data in less than 8 minutes.
“We are committed to the WiGig future and to heterogeneous networking and have been working on making it viable for our customers since early 2015.” -SYL Chao, CEO of TRI
Fast transfers are cool and all, but we are also excited about the additional features this case has to offer. The Turing Armor comes with a 3,000 mAh battery, a microUSB port and a 3.5 mm headset jack!
Now, the latter two additions may not sound that ground breaking to many of you, but those who have been following the Turing Phone know this is kind of a big deal. Because the Turing Phone focuses on security and privacy, it leaves no chances for attackers to access it. For Turing, this meant getting rid of the microUSB port and headset jack, leaving only a proprietary port that supports no more than charging.
This means the Turing Armor will not only keep the phone safer, but it will also substantially improve battery life, grant faster data transfers and even offer you the ports many of you were hoping for. And the best part is that it’s pretty much “free” for those who buy the Dark Wyvern Turing Phone.
Also worth mentioning is that those who already pre-ordered the regular Turing Phone are not exactly left stranded. TRI will upgrade you to the Dark Wyvern upon request (and payment). How many of you are pre-ordering the Turing Phone Dark Wyvern handset? Hit the comments and let us know which feature on the Turing Armor is more exciting to you.
