Belmont, Calif.-based IXI Mobile, which makes Ogo mobile devices, has cut 40 employees or 25 percent of its staff and is closing facilities to save money, San Francisco Business Times reports. The company lost $21.5 million a year ago and was able to cut its second quarter loss to $11.4 million, but sales are dropping at a good clip, and one customer made up 69 percent the company

I don't know that IXI Mobile were dropped the OGO? But I heard that Asia and Europe loves OGO like hot cakes! I was hoping that OGO will releasing in USA? It is been two years! I am waiting for that. I like that OGO with clamshell. I don't like the Sidekick and BB!

PLEASE BRING IT BACK AND RELEASING IT IN USA!!

Thank you,

I just want it to be known that I TOO was devastated when AT&T;Wireless did away with the Ogo — that device was by far a flagship device if ever there was one — it was the AT&T;Sidekick of sorts, (of course minus the phone capabilities) and it was magnificent as well all know T-Mobile lacks coverage in some area's and AT&T;has it's network pretty well filled out. IXI, I wish you'd make a comeback into the United States. I think you'd be received much better now — your device and service would be PERFECT for those callers I get (I work an AT&T;call center) that state they just want a text plan only, and no calling plan. We can't do that now, and it COULD be done with your devices. COME BACK!
