December Update- latest news and we are going to Vegas for CES!

Posted by (Creator)

Hello Friends, 

We hope this update finds you all happy and healthy as we approach the New Year. We are still working hard at rolling Matchstick out to the door to you. By now, most of our Developer Units have been received and peeps around the world are geeking out on them! A few of our peeps posted pics on Twitter, check them out: @LukeInTH, @matths, @osterzl. Post yours and tag us if you haven't yet! 

We have a lot of exciting things happening! We are getting ready to launch the updated Matchstick Website. We should be online by the end of December. Here you will be able to connect with others in the Developer Community, and we will also begin accepting pre-orders for those who missed out on the Kickstarter campaign, or for those who just want more Matchsticks! 

We are still deep in development and we have been working with Mozilla to develop DRM features for Firefox OS in order to support premium content providers that you all have been asking for! Yes, that includes Netflix! 

We wanted to take this opportunity to extend a special invitation to our Developers. We will be attending the International CES in January, and we want to see you there! This is a great opportunity to meet the team behind Matchstick, check out all of our latest demos and talk shop! We will also be making some exciting product and partnership announcements at CES, so you don't want to miss out! Plus, there will be free stickers!! :) 

What is International CES? 

  • The International CES is the world’s gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technologies. 
  • CES is where business gets done – on the show floor, in and around our conference program, in chance encounters, planned meetings and special events. 
  • The 2015 CES will host more than 3,500 exhibitors in two million net sq. ft. of space across our three official venues – CES Tech East, CES Tech West and ARIA.

What are the details? 

  • The Matchstick Team will be at CES from January 6th through the 9th. 
  • We will be camped out in Eureka Park at the Sands, Tech West space 75205.
  • Here is the link to add to your CES Planner.

      Maybe you could just drop mine off while you are here.

      @Zaytia that is because only the Developer Units have shipped. The rest of the units are still in production. We will survey the rest of our backers for shipping info closer to shipping time. :)
