1GB+8GB 2100MHz / MWC Strategic Partnerships / #TrueSmartHackaton
We do apologize as we have not been able to answer emails over the last two weeks because the team is working most of its time with suppliers and in the factory to cope with the massive demand. Backers are always our top priority to receive each TrueSmart version. The [512MB+4GB / 2100MHz] model was the first one to get qualified, followed by the [1G+8GB / 1900MHz]. We are now actively working on the 1GB+8GB 2100MHz.
We successfully managed the new Printed Circuit Board Assembly (PCBA) of the Extreme Edition 1GB+8GB 2100MHz. We have assembled the first units this weekend, we must perform further testing this week before launching the Mass Production. No major update this week as we keep the same planning target as what was mentioned in the update #61. As explained a few times, there are several weeks between first shipments and last arrival of each batch. Thanks for your patience. We really appreciate.
- We have shipped another batch of October Developer Edition [1GB+8GB /1900MHz] last week. The remaining units will be gradually dispatched until the end of March.
- We are assembling the [1GB+8GB / 2100MHz]. We do understand that this model has been delayed from End of December shipment plan but we could not manage it faster. That [1GB+8GB / 2100MHz] model will be gradually dispatched until mid of April.
We had many strategic meetings at MWC Barcelona with Mobile Network Operators and ecosystem partners. We are working on amazing strategic partnerships, we are looking forward to sharing further with you about these alliances which will be unveiled in the next few months. Alike CES, we have not been impressed by what we saw at MWC from the competition. A few new smartwatches 1.0 which do not bring a life-changing experience as they only work when connected to our smartphones as a Bluetooth companion accessory, slave of our smartphone. Omate has definitely disrupted the wearable industry by connected a truly smart wearable device to the telecom network.
