Fellow PocketSpriters and PocketSpritees, devices are shipping!
There’s been gargantuan efforts behind the radio-silence to get your devices built, tested, packed, and dispatched.
Despite getting pummeled by China’s holiday season, cases were molded, PCBs were pressed and populated, devices were programmed and packaged.
We’d set a highly ambitious dispatch date, and we’re proud to have hit it, and thankful to our partners that made it happen.
Here is the breakdown:
- Sunday April 15: 199 Early Bird Standard Editions dispatched
- Monday April 23: Remaining Early Bird Standard Editions + Early Bird Hacker Editions dispatched
For everyone else, we are on target to meet our delivery date, May 15.
Your tracking codes will update as they are integrated into the Crowd Supply system.
Further good news:
- Improved Screen Material: We’d prototyped with ABS, but managed to concoct a transparent acrylic that is even more scratch resistant. We’ve fitted this into everyone’s devices at no extra cost.
- Deluxe Edition Screens: Every single Deluxe Edition will come with Gorilla Glass 3.0 for the screen - at no extra cost.
- Deluxe Edition Preview: We’ve had many emails of people requesting that we unveil what the Deluxe Edition will look like. The first 100% CNC’d anodized aluminium cases with their brushed metal finish have finished production: stay tuned, you’ll get an exclusive look at these amazing devices in the coming days.
As always, if you’ve got questions or concerns, we’re here to look after you - drop us a line.
