    Pandora fever!!!!!

    If you get extremely lucky, you can get a cheap unit on eBay. I picked up my unit in that price range less than a month ago. Watch eBay like a hawk, and you might just catch one.

    Bought a Pandora Off eBay, I have a couple questions

    The unit arrived today. WiFi works like a charm and the nubs seem to be responding fine in all directions. It has the little "bulge" on the bottom of the bezel, but that doesn't really bother me at all. It DOES have a crack where apparently one of the lid screws was tightened a little too much...

    Bought a Pandora Off eBay, I have a couple questions

    I've been on board this train since 2009, I knew what I was getting into. My biggest hope back then was for portable N64 playing, but now I don't ride a bus daily, so it's not that big of a deal. I had a preorder in before there was ever any talk of 512mb units or 1ghz units, but my financial...

    Bought a Pandora Off eBay, I have a couple questions

    Ergh! This looks like all the headache of disassembling a cell phone with the "fun" of hinges. I think I'll take my chances with the purple tint. I don't have the unit on hand yet, and the seller claimed that it was like new. I'm going to hope very much that it has one of the revised LCD...

    Bought a Pandora Off eBay, I have a couple questions

    Thanks for the information. If it has the purple tint, how difficult would it be to replace the LCD cable? As far as my tech level goes, I am comfortable with disassembling a laptop down to the motherboard and the screen unit down to the LCD lamp. And as far as Android goes, that's just gravy...

    Bought a Pandora Off eBay, I have a couple questions

    My story, summed up: I followed the Pandora early on, got a late order in Batch 1, waited for 2 and a half years without any fruit, canceled and bought a smart phone. Today, about a year later I purchased a Pandora on eBay. When it gets here will there be any way to tell what kind of defects it...

    Cancelled

    Indeed, many people insulted me for being willing to pay so much for something they simply saw as a toy. It's a full XFCE environment in your pocket. There's literally nothing else on the market that offers that (at least, that has a keyboard and a suitable replacement for a mouse.) Other...

    Cancelled

    Thank you for the updates, ED. Honest communication means something in itself, even if it's not necessarily good news.

    Cancelled

    Honestly, I don't believe that money would fix the problem. CircuitCo seems to be a terrible company that needs to be reported to the BBB. Of course, I have never dealt with them, and only forming an opinion of them based on the words of the OpenPandora team would be unfair. It's still nice to...

    Cancelled

    It's at a time like this that makes me worry about the project (and my money.) With so little actual progress to show for over the last month, it makes me want to just settle for some android smart phone. With so little news and so little progress, it makes me fear that I'll never get my unit...

    Cancelled

    Personally, I'm losing hope in ever receiving it (or rather, in receiving it in a timely manner.) I have gone without any nice handheld gadgetry for a long time in waiting for the Pandora. I saved my money and paid for it, expecting a realistic turnover. For my needs, nothing rivals it. This...

    Cancelled

    I've been following the project for a very long time, I only found the funds to order in February of 2010. I had never seriously pondered cancelling until today, and if I needed the money I would do it in a heartbeat. I really believe in the project, but the last few weeks have been desolate...

    Instant Pandora with a premium?

    I don't approve of people line-jumping me because I can't afford to pay a premium, but I'm so far back in line that it doesn't really matter. If it means that the project can move forward more quickly, by all means do it. Edit: I will be thoroughly pissed if anyone in batch 2 gets a Pandora...

    Invisible Shield

    Hmm. I bought an Invisible Shield for my Pandora at half price, and now I'm considering not using it. (I'm late in batch 1.) Decisions, decisions...

    Stop me if you think you've heard this one before

    If things continue at this rate, I'll have my Pandora within a year of ordering. (February 2010)

    Batch 2'ers

    February would be a long shot for latecomers to batch 1.

    How Are You Feeling About The Pandora Today?

    It's $400 that magically disappeared from my life.
