We have been getting several questions along the same lines, so wanted to address them here within a quick status update.
Why has delivery taken so long?
Overall we have been having to create units in smaller production batches than originally expected so that we can have acceptable quality for delivery. This is definitely an area of continued focus, as we will need to get this improved as we move to larger volumes going forward.
Logistics regarding the shipping are a continual roadblock and have slowed down the process also. As each shipment is being sent individually to the target country, there is a large time overhead with regard to shipping paperwork.
When will I receive my device?
We will require three more production batches to complete all of the units needed for distribution. Expectation is that these three batches will be completed over the next 3 weeks. As each batch is completed, we will send the units out to backers, so it will continue to be a continual production and shipping process over the coming weeks. As mentioned previously, units are shipped in bulk to the US for distribution ($279 & $299 level are still remaining). European and global units are shipped usually based by country so that customs and paperwork can be streamlined (for example Australian units start shipping tomorrow)
We are all working as quickly as possible to get these units completed and sent out, and are working hard to address open SW issues and bring even more functionality to the device.
