The report comes from "people familiar with the matter" speaking to the Wall Street Journal, so don't take it as a given just yet – but the WSJ does have a solid record when it comes to these sort of scoops.… Read the full article

The SP1 was launched in March 2018 and has received many Editor’s Choice and Product of the Year awards from numerous publications in that short time.
