      Kickstarter backers, we haven’t forgotten you. For backers of our previous Kickstarter, you’ll get 2x your backer amount (up to $100 off) or a cash refund, your choice. Details coming soon.

      This project wasn't stopped, but you change your direction to make a tablet from make a generic os.

      I'm not interested in Atom tablets, SO I WANT REFUND. and you said you will refund for kickstarter backers

      @Valat - This is not correct information. We began shipping Console OS using a kernel and platform that we licsened from Intel. Go back and see our first releases. They did not use Android-x86 code at all.

      After Intel suddenly aborted development of Android-IA for PC hardware, we attempted to continue development as a superset of Android-x86, but the maintainers have since admitted to shaking us down to the tune of $50,000. Emails and their admission of this were posted in prior updates.

      We are continuing to move forward, please do not pepper us with foul language.

      I only wanted a refund since nothing was delivered for asus T100 adn other devices i own.
      The thing you delivered was a ripoff another free project and was really unstable.
      You promised to refund or offer somothing to kackers but exept justifying your failure on intel...
      I know i should stay respectfull but since you are not : F... you!

    4. Yu Cheng on August 18

      Imagine setting up a successfully funded but failed kickstarter and spent the next 3 years trying to justify the failure to backers.

      Hey there creators,
      I haven't checked up on this project in a while and I reread some of the older comments.
      I feel really sorry that this project ended up in flames and I wish the best for you guys in moving forward.
      As for everyone else I hope you understand that this is not the project creator's fault, and it's the software support needed to create such an operating system that is no longer available. I don't believe Mobile Media Ventures is equipped with the funds/staff to tackle such a large project on their own, such as taking on an increasingly closed source android OS (I'm looking at you Nougat)

    6. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on August 4

      Hi all, we don't have any new update as of yet. Intel has not made any final decisions on the Intel Atom "Cherry Trail" processor - and thus, we can't really provide good guidance about what's next for Console or ConsoleTab from our last update.

      @Chamil - We no longer offer Console OS for download. We began issuing releases using Intel's kernel before Intel suddenly discontinued Android-IA for PC hardware. To continue offer the old downloads would be a security risk.

      Havent recieved the software. How to download and use it?

      Can I have refund

    9. Zer0duck30 on July 10

      I haven't been following much but due to "We've posted in-depth what we're doing with Teclast, including modifying antennas, Wi-Fi radios, and most importantly, the firmware, to be US-certified and perform better in the United States" I do not reside in the US. Therefore Per Update #41, I would like to formally request a refund. I have completely lost faith in this endeavor.

      @Tom - We're going to have to point you to our latest update in the past 30 days. Unfortunately, we can't comment further right now.

      Hi, i am not interested in console tab. i am interested in running android on my windows PC. can i please have a refund as mentioned in your recent update.

      good luck with your project

    12. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on July 2

      @John - Perhaps you missed the "courtesy" part. We lost way more money than anyone else when Android kernel support for PC was pulled out from underneath us.

      refunds will include interest yes?

    14. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on June 17

      @Shane - We hear you. A lot of Kickstarters that run into an adverse event or stated risk simply go away. We've made clear we aren't going to do that.

    15. Shane Dean on June 17

      I'd actually forgotten that I'd backed this project it's been so long!!

    16. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on June 16

      We are not going to discuss backer-only updates in the public comments. That being said we're still excited to be working on ConsoleTab, and we've addressed your requests in the update. Please send us a message if you'd like more details on our plan to keep Console going.

      To everyone else, we really don't feel the copy-pasted comments below represent the state of Console, or ConsoleTab for that matter - but we're not going to elaborate for the next couple of weeks.

      I would like a refund from you, its been years and I lost my confidence. It's good that you are sending updates on development but we haven't seen the product yet. So even its going to be good, we are not sure about the exact delivery date pf the product.

      Hi Dave,

      As we posted on social media, we had to move suddenly. There was a maintenance issue at our old office and we had to vacate urgently. Unfortunately, we didn't quite get the keys to our new office in the timeframe we had expected.

      The past couple of weeks have been pretty exhausting as a result, we're still setting up in our new offices. We don't want to send out any updates until we have the space to recover from this sudden move. Most of our gear is still in (dozens... and dozens...) of bankers boxes, that we had to shove into storage during the gap between our old and new offices.

      Rest assured, we're still here, still working away. It's just taking longer than we had expected. But we will get to those topics in short order. Thanks for hanging in there with us.

    28. Dave Constant on April 16, 2017

      Good morning.
      I've not posted publicly as the developers were keeping in regular contact when I had questions.
      My most recent message has gone unanswered and the console os web forums are nothing but spam.
      I understand taking a risk when backing a project, and that many people will not worry about the loss of $10 USD.
      For the three of use who pledged over $1,000 USD we are paying attention, and desire results for everyone,
      Do you wish to comment on the status of your web forums?
      Do you wish to comment on the possibility of refunds for all backers?
      We look forward to you public reply.
      Respectfully,
      Dave C

      Hi all, as you have noticed, portions of our site have gone on lockdown. This is because we have pushed the final text for our next wave of announcements, and they're significant enough for us to take the prior pages down in the mean time.

      @Chamil - Please check your spam filter as everyone else has gotten multiple releases from us. You can confirm this by logging in and tabbing over to the updates tab, and scrolling.

      @Oliver - We're sorry you feel that way. We have announced new devices with Intel processors. It's unfortunate that Intel chose to discontinue Android support for traditional PC hardware, but that was confirmed by them long ago.

      We're moving ahead despite that, and we have been very open with backers about what we're working on - it was a stated risk that we depended on that technology.

    30. Yu Cheng on March 14, 2017

      Woah it's been 3 years since I lost my 10 bucks.

    31. Chamil Kulasekera on March 11, 2017

      I haven't received any link to download software all this time? How to get the software and use it?

    32. Oliver Max on February 20, 2017

      What a scam. No updates still. They blame everything on Intel.

    33. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on January 9, 2017

      @dan02743 - We are not simply rebranding Teclast tablets. We've posted in-depth what we're doing with Teclast, including modifying antennas, Wi-Fi radios, and most importantly, the firmware, to be US-certified and perform better in the United States. Your claims about what we're building, are just incorrect.

      We hope to make ConsoleTab a success, but no major company is funding this work, so your patience is appreciated...

    34. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on January 9, 2017

      @Jeff Bristow - We disagree and we're sorry you feel that way. Intel pulled the plug on Android support for PCs. That's darn clear, and it's darn simple. We have rolled with those punches, and we're proud of what we're doing today.

    35. Missing avatar

      dan02743 on January 3, 2017

      @Jeff, I don't think they will fail to deliver their hardware. What they will be delivering, however, will surely be overpriced telcast tablets rebranded under their own moniker. Which is fine as they claim they have an agreement in place to do that. This ConsoleOS nonsense they pedaled with passing Android-x86 off as their own work is just shameful and their claims that they have delivered because they have downloads to that is shadyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy and dishonest. Unsatisfied backers should really be refunded. It shouldn't be an "option" only if the hardware is successful (how would we even know if they are successful?). Nobody can trust this "company"

    36. Jeff Bristow on January 3, 2017

      MMV - If you move into hardware and then get backers who drop significant amounts of money, not just $10 you will find yourself battling a lot of people in court when you don't deliver. Most of us simply don't care that we lost $10 on this venture. At this point I don't care about the reasons why this project has been a failure but I certainly know that nobody that is familiar with your company will back any future projects of yours.

    37. Missing avatar

      dan02743 on January 3, 2017

      So instead of refunding your backers, you have chosen to rebrand and pivot to hardware? Seems rather fruitless when y'all couldn't manage to deliver on anything promised in your campaign. A better, and I'd say smarter PR move would have been to save some face and refund those who put money down to support your venture rather than to simply shift the blame on Intel. Just my 2 cents... (not that you deserve to get another penny from me)

    38. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on January 3, 2017

      @Andrew - Intel pulled the plug on Android. Not us. It was a stated risk that Android could change upstream. It was a shared risk, for us and for backers.

      Despite this, we're working to offer alternate options, and if possible, courtesy refunds to people with our upcoming products.

      So does changing your company name absolve you of delivering console.os?

      Sure seems like you spend more time on ridiculous PR hype then delivering anything..

    45. Wesley Verdin on November 15, 2016

      I think it's time for refunds... Although I'm sure I'll never see that money again. You've spent it all while selling us bullshit.

      I want to get refund .

    47. Mobile Media Ventures, Inc. Creator on October 25, 2016

      @Alejandro - Four months after our Kickstarter ended, Intel pulled promised support. While we've been trying to deliver since, we have had to pivot to hardware. Please tab over to Updates to see the crossgrade and courtesy refund options we will be rolling out later this year.

      With Google poised to move Android away from the Linux kernel, we don't think it's a good time to return to developing Console OS. We think people in that space, now that Google has announced this move, are throwing bad money after good at this point. We have to see what Andromeda, and its impact to Android will be, before revisiting that space at all.

      One quick ConsoleTab update - as mentioned on Twitter, we have begun intaking redesigned keyboard samples for final validation and testing: https://twitter.com/iConsole/status/786308322278256640

      We apologize for the delay, but as mentioned in our keyboard update, this redesigned keyboard (sans second battery) will both lower the cost of ConsoleTab, and allow us to quickly ship ConsoleTab without further delays to the keyboard.
