Apple Approval, Production Begins
Alright Guys and Gals. Big news.
Apple has officially approved the hardware, and as of today our factory in China is starting production. This is a huge milestone for us, and it is a huge relief to be able to announce it. Based on this, we will ship the $39 units by June 1st. We will use testflight to distribute apps to the backers who paid $49 and $249, and ship those units by May 1st.
Thanks so much for your patience. Things are coming together really well, and we could not have made it to this point without you. I understand the concern expressed by some of you; I too have backed projects that have had delays.
I can, however, tell you that Ronald and I wake up every day with one goal- get this product to market and build a business of innovative and fun iOS experiences. We are constantly pushing the product, and showing demos. You'll never find me without an Air Guitar in my pocket, assuming I'm wearing pants.
In addition to our kickstarter goals, the product will launch in retail this summer, in the US and abroad. The retailer cannot yet be disclosed, but you'll find them in every major city.
