There were a lot of old false youtube videos saying tesla was going to make a phone. Don't believe everything you read.
I own a M3 and was a beta for starlink so I know that spaceX has the technology to build a satellite phone.

I also realize that there was a lot of click-bait about a tesla phone in the past, but with Nio doing it, it could be a large source of income for spaceX so they can go to the moon and mars. Starlink service in my area is slipping a bit and I think the dish sales have stalled at around one million because they are really discounting the dishes.

Neo is not doing it. They only are in development phase if that. It like the same things we hear every week like Toyota has a solid state battery. It is just stuff designed to make people think there is something better out there when the stuff we have now if fine and will also improve over time.

can we focus on one thing, CT? :)
we don't need another android phone and Starlink is already working with T-Mobile
dude is already running 5+ companies while on ADD/ADHD, dont give him ideas before CT in full production (at least 5k CT a month)!
Just go with an Neurolink implant. Cell phones are so 2023.

I wrote about this 'happening' 10 years ago. The device was mounted on the Cochlear Bone to enable a mind to machine interface, where closing your eyes created a 'Dream Like State' for visualisation of download. This evolution of today's Neuralink happens 50 or so years from today. 'No Wires'.....batteries Included.

Not just phones, NIO Life. Food, music, clothing line, hand bags, even a cool e-scooter! And some thought Elon was stretched thin:

I'm not well verse reading quarterly results, but I looks like they are in the red, correct me if I'm wrong.

yeah, Tesla's price cuts have hurt them. The whole idea of swapping out batteries in their cars is a strategic mistake.
