Hello ALPHA Backers!
Team ALPHA has been working hard on Pre-production.
We spent the week in China with Koen Geenen of PHILIPS and MIO's Software Engineer Qin Yu.
Here they are, hard at work poring over endless reams of test data and carefully analyzing each circuit board.
We have been subjecting ALPHA to more tortures such as drop tests and electroshock treatment and are of the opinion ALPHA should be ready for life in the "real world" pretty soon. We will take the next few weeks to fully assess the results of the Pre-Production Run and if satisfied, we will give Mass Production the green flag. ALPHA backers will be the first to know!
Here are a couple of close ups of the two ALPHA color choices: Shadow (that's the black one), and Arctic White.
We think both our babies turned out beautifully. Oh, and some other pretty important people think they did too - but more on that litte secret in a month or so...
It is with real pleasure that we are looking forward to getting ALPHA on your wrists and getting feedback directly from you - the folks that made it happen.
Liz, Manson and Gene
