As the phone market saturates so does is the reseller community surrounding them, and acquisitions like the one between Efox and Antelife are going to become more common.
According to news in China, online reseller Efox (or at least the company behind the Efox called Aukey) brand, have bought Antelife and are currently restructuring the two companies.
Update: We will be interviewing Aukey bosses to see how they plan to improve Antelife. If you have questions please let us know and we will try to get them answered.
Efox are generally known in Germany as the main reseller of Chinese phones, but the company also has an English site (Coolicool) that deals with other markets. The acquisition of Antelife should strengthen Efox’s position in Spain, where the company claimed to have a warehouse located.
News of the acquisition is only available in Chinese for now, but hopefully Efox will eventually make some official comment about the news soon.
So what does this mean for Antelife customers? Well we have heard reports of some Antelife customers waiting on phones and other electronics to be shipped, we don’t know if this buy out news is related to shipping delays or not, but hope it all gets cleared up soon.
