We were going to make a milestone at $2mm, but you guys beat us to it.
The Software Development Kit (SDK) will be available to EVERYONE before Pebble ships. We're also building a simulator so developers can test their applications even before they receive their watch.
Don't worry, HACKER SPECIAL backers...you're still getting your prototype units in August. This announcement just means that more and more apps will be available for Pebble the moment that the main batch starts to ship!
To learn more about the development capabilities of Pebble, you can follow the dev blog.
We're also working on some other cool announcements for the remainder of the 35 days! Man...that sounds like a long time, but I know it will go by quickly.
