Get this on AppAdvice!
Less than $5,000 to go!!!!! So close!!!!
Oh no. We've lost some funding. That's too bad
Come on people, BACK THIS PROJECT!!! Such a cool device! Time is almost up!!! Only a little more to go! It just HAS to make it!!!!!! :)
So close! Let's hope it makes it.
Looking forward to hacking it in to a thin client for Windows 8 can't wait.
Will this handle hdmi? And or video/audio input?
Only 8 days to go!!! I sure hope more people will come on board with this! Maybe get it on Mashable, AppAdvice... Hope it makes it!!!
We are choosing between two screens 19" and 21.5". We expect to run it by focus groups in a couple of months to make a final decision.
have you decided on the final screen size?
Hi Sue - yes it can be used on a normal wifi. You can basically get a 3G/wifi router/modem and it's going to work with it. Or just use it with any standard wifi router. Thank you!
Regarding connection, l am in Australia so obviously don't have access to AT&T or Verizon. CAn it be used on our 3g mobile network or on a normal wifi or ethernet network?
We are debating the right approach here. It's either going to be an optional 4G module inside the device or external 4G/WiFi modem (the one AT&T and Verizon use). In any case, it will be offered when one orders the device and it will be preconfigured before we ship.
Could you elaborate on the 4g option? Think this would be helpful as many seniors don't always have internet services already in place.
The device is connected via WiFi or optional 4G. There are no cloud subscription fees for Kickstarter backers for the lifetime of the device they are getting through pledging.
Could you clarify how the Pure Device connects to your cloud service (WiFi / Cable), and if the cloud service will be free?
