First Shipment Status
Since last Wednesday we have been busy ramping up our production test flow and validating all the features on the Gen1 Parallella board. We are very pleased to announce that we will be shipping 50 boards on Wednesday the 18th and another 100 (at least) by Monday 12/23.
Who will get a board?
The very first recipients will be the 15 Kickstarter backers who supported us at the EARLY-ACCESS ($2500) and 64-NOW ($10,000) levels. Going forward, the rest of the 16-core Parallella boards will be shipped in order of backer number . The total number of rewards we can ship in this batch is dependent on our production yield ramp, but we hope to get up to backer #130.
We have selected DHL Globalmail (http://us.dhlglobalmail.com/) for shipping to all backers. Having reviewed many Kickstarter projects, we know that getting international delivery right is a huge challenge. We think we have found the most practical solution, but of course we are open to feedback. Please do note that in some countries there may be VAT, fees or import duties due on your purchase that you will need to pay upon receipt of the board. Once your order ships, you will receive an email with a tracking number. Please be sure to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your contact list to avoid it getting stuck in your spam filter.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please send an email to us at email@example.com.
