Elon Musk may produce ‘alternative’ smartphones to compete with Apple

Elon Musk said that he will produce “alternative” smartphones to compete with Apple and Android devices, if the micro-blogging platform gets removed from the application stores.

Musk replied: “I certainly hope it does not come to that, but, yes, if there is no other choice, I will make an alternative phone”.

Meanwhile, Musk on Friday said that Twitter plans to relaunch its premium service that will offer different coloured check marks to accounts next week, in a fresh move to revamp the service after a previous attempt backfired. In the latest version, companies will get a gold check, governments will get a gray check, and individuals who pay for the service, whether or not they’re celebrities, will get a blue check, Musk said on Friday.

“All verified accounts will be manually authenticated before check activates,” he said, adding it was “Painful, but necessary” and promising a “longer explanation” next week. He said the service was “tentatively launching” on December 2.
