Update #13

Not long now...

Good morning backers!

In our last update we said we would be shipping in two weeks which we sent out two weeks ago, so we're thought we'd send a quick up date to let you know what's going on. As you know we have been busy sorting out manufacturing and assembly issues and as life would have it, not everything goes to plan. Unfortunately we had a batch of metal parts arrive which didn't meet our quality standards so they had to be replaced, and a public holiday lost us a few days. However the good news is only a small batch of parts were effected so in an effort to speed things up we have air freighted our first batch of completed units to our distribution center in LA. There have been a few issues with the shipping documentation so its taken a bit longer for them to arrive in LA than we hoped but they are on there way and as soon as we know more we'll let you know.

We're reluctant to provide a shipping date or time frame as a lot of things are our of our hands now (like shipping time frame and customs clearance) however having said that (fingers crossed) we're hoping people located in the US should start receive their Opena's by the end of the month and the rest of the world should start seeing them arriving in early Oct.

Again we apologize for the delays, there have definitely been WAY more hiccups and delays in the manufacturing side of things than we expected but hopefully the wait will be worth it.

Cheers

The Opena Team

      Hey blokes,
      Do Aussies have to wait with the rest of the world as well? =(

      Cheers

      Yeah we are hoping the same thing, however if we do need to make a new version we'll be way more prepared and in the know so we should be about to produce them much faster!

      Sweet!!!! Here's to hoping that the new iPhone 5 is the same size and shape, so that I don't need to wait for a new redesigned Opena. :)
