Introducing the new Marshall London: smartphone inspired by iconic amp brought to life by Creoir, Finnish mobile tech experts

Creoir, Finnish mobile tech experts, announces its partnership with Zound Industries to design, develop and manufacture the Marshall London smartphone. This world-class smartphone was unveiled in front of an exclusive audience in London last night alongside a line-up of rock legends.

Creoir, a Finnish mobile technology company that specialises in tailored wireless devices, was chosen by Zound Industries to bring to life a vision of a smartphone that delivers high-quality sound, worthy of the best rock music in the world. The result is the Marshall London smartphone, which makes it seamless to listen, record and create superb, high-quality audio for the very first time.

Unique and personalised audio specification

Marshall London allows for high-quality listening thanks to its powerful dual speakers, which feature enhanced bass technology and a dedicated hifi-grade sound card by Cirrus Logic. In addition, the stereo microphone has been designed for high-quaility recording on the go and offers exceptional noise reduction.

Two stereo jacks are located on the top of the phone, allowing two users to share music simultaneously and at different volume levels. A global wide equalizer allows the user to personalise music played on the phone without having to adjust the sound on each individual music app. The revolutionary M-button gives quick access to any music player, including the London’s pre-installed music player, which supports popular formats such as MP3, MP4, AAC and many more. To ensure all music lovers are catered for, the London is also capable of crystal-clear playback of FLAC files, giving justice to old music collections.

Design and development took place in Oulu, Finland, a city with a rich expertise in mobile technology. The city, home of Creoir, is enjoying a tech renaissance after the departure of Nokia and Microsoft’s handset manufacturing operations. Oulu also has a rich music heritage, famous for its rock scene and live music festivals.

Pekka Väyrynen, Creoir CEO, said: “Zound Industries chose to work with Creoir so they could see their concept become reality without the need for the technical and manufacturing know-how for building a smartphone. Working with their talented people has been really inspiring and we are excited to see their Marshall London smartphone launch.”
Konrad Bergström, Zound Industries President and Co-Founder, said: “We needed to make sure we had the best partner to help engineer the Marshall London. That’s why we chose Creoir, a partner who could meet our high standards.”

The Marshall London was unveiled last night at an exclusive London launch event. Guests enjoyed appearances from Mick Jones (former Clash guitarist), Phil Campbell from Motörhead, Glen Matlock of the Sex Pistols and the London Community Gospel Choir.

The Marshall London smartphone will be available via TeliaSonera shops and at the Marshall online store.

The Ibis, Dual Face Smart Watch, Debuts at Mobile World Congress 2014

Barcelona, Spain – 24th February 2014 – Product creation house Creoir Ltd debuts the Ibis smart watch today at Mobile World Congress. The Ibis ushers in a new category of wearable technology that is driven by the latest style trends. The Ibis is challenging consumer perceptions about smart watches being cumbersome and unattractive. The Ibis is wearable jewellery that integrates the latest technologies for a seamless experience. Beautifully crafted in crystal and stainless steel, the design was inspired by a flying bird whose wing tips touch together while carrying a young bird on its back, symbolising the precious and personal current of information on your smart watch.

Any watch, smart or not, is personal style statement by the wearer. The Ibis brings an innovative design-led approach to the nascent smart watch industry where fashion will be a key driver of smart watch sales for consumers. According to industry research company Gartner Inc., most smart watches have not achieved mass-market appeal due to the lack of innovative design. The majority of products that have been launched so far have displays that many consumers will find "unstylish & clunky" due to their bulkiness.


We believe the demand for smart watches will be driven by fashion and sport brands, and the Ibis exemplifies the type of product that we create for fashion brands, said Creoir Ltd CEO Pekka Väyrynen. He continues, “Every brand has its own design language, so with each client we start from scratch to develop a product that specifically matches the brand and their audience. With our expertise, we can provide consumer brand owners with everything they need to have a real advantage when entering the smart device space.”


The philosophy behind the design is to bring longevity and elegance in the form of bracelet combining an analogue quartz watch with a smart watch display that is future proof due to its unique user interface. The aim is to combine timeless beauty and functionality.


The Ibis smart watch features include:

• Stainless steel and crystal materials

• Low power optimised Android platform with custom UI

• Interoperable with iOS and Android

• OLED display with integrated touch

• Wifi, Bluetooth 4.0 and USB connectivity

• Accelerometer, e-compass and ambient light sensor

• Remote control and notifications with your smart phone



The Ibis is the latest concept smart watch from Creoir Ltd, a company that designs and manufactures tailored mobile devices for consumer brands. The Ibis design can be viewed at the Team Finland stand at Mobile World Congress, located at 5F31 in Hall 5.
