Lots going on

Hey backers. A busy week with lots going on.

Production

Production is going along great with the delivery timeline still on schedule. 90% of everything is going smooth with a few bugs. We are still optimizing heat dissipation as we continue to overclock the cpu, gpu and ram for better performance. These are minor bugs, but we want to get them done before we ship. Performance is very important to us and allowing the heat to dissipate without interfering with other components will help to provide a better experience.

Firmware & Software

Android was built for devices with batteries, cdma, gsm and 4g. We have been optimizing the system and removing alot of files for a more responsive Smart TV. Our goal is to hit above 3000 on the antutu benchmark. With the firmware and hardware optimizations we are on our way.

Just around the corner

We are working with a couple of unannounced big players in the media and gaming industry to provide an even better experience.

PS We are adding a new member to our team very soon to help with marketing and customer service. Thanks for backing us and being patient.

      I had planned to use mine at a trade show starting next weekend. I had even offered to pay more for expedited shipping, but nobody from Equiso has responded to my messages about availability, so I had to order an MK802 instead. I think they were a bit too aggressive on their release schedule. With only 2 weeks to go and no shipping addresses requested yet, it seems like the hardware issues should have been resolved in July if Equiso had hoped to have devices in customers' hands before September.

      While I am a little bent out of shape over the delay, the one thing that I liked better about Equiso was their focus on doing a good job with the software. I'm just hoping they didn't overpromise on that front like it seems they may have on the delivery date.

      We are almost half way through August, Any one know tentative shipping dates?

    3. Creator Timothy Floyd on August 15, 2012

      Any one thats part of the $39/$55 pledges received any inquiries yet in regards to their choice of the original or PRO model yet?

    4. Creator Mohammad Tanbir Ahmed on August 14, 2012

      No they haven't asked for shipping addresses yet.

    5. Creator Pete Basofin on August 13, 2012

      Did you start asking for shipping addresses? Afraid I may have deleted some of your emails.

      Hi,

      My intention is to use the Equiso Smart TV for streaming media from my network. Do you have any performance information on streaming from a SAMBA share on a network?

      Thanks

      Hi
      for international shipping, I seem to have received a communication for the moment are not available, since it started with the expeditions in the U.S.,

      I know when I have the international shipping?

      thanks

    8. Creator Hubert Wang on August 10, 2012

      I, too, would also be interested in a more specific shipping date.

    9. Creator Julian White on August 10, 2012

      Oh yes, my opinion on that. the onboard memory will be used to store apps, not content. 4 gig will be more than enough, and if it is faster it makes the more obvious choice. So if you are going to use that rather than the 8gig, please do!

    10. Creator Rich Wiatrowski @weaponlordzero on August 10, 2012

      Did you find out for sure if you could use the more expensive memory you spoke about in a prior update?

    11. Creator Lawrence Lee on August 10, 2012

      Any estimations aswhat to expect our products be shipped? I know its somewhere in august but is it possible to narrow down to an estimate date possible? Thanks.

    12. Creator Julian White on August 10, 2012

      Excellent news, and sounds like a good plan to optimise the system by removing all the unnecessary junk.

      Make sure you don't overclock them *too* much mind, don't want small fires appearing behind our TVs :D
