Reduced thickness, cleaner look and delivery time

Thickness
Due to the large amount of funding, we are able to go for fancier magnets and thinner connection pads. This means the phone with cover will be 0.5mm thinner without loosing any connection force! 

Cleaner look
As a result of solving another problem, the bottom part will no longer need screws and will have a lot cleaner look. (part expected on the 15th) We are looking into doing the same for the cover part.
The PCB in the cover part will cover the entire inside -not just partly like on the campaign page- to make this part a lot stronger. The next working prototype featuring this will be shown next Friday (the 14th).

Delivery time
Because the campaign is going so well and we don't have to spend the rest of the month doing marketing, we can jump right into setting everything up and moving the delivery time forward. The keypad is being triple checked before it can be made by the manufacturer, and a lot of tooling for the PCB assembly-line is on its way here.
