BUMP.

So..

Is there anyone that can offer a Pandora for anything less than $250?

Due to some circumstances, I cannot possibly afford the bundle, and I'm getting a little desperate at this point. I /REALLY/ need one and kinda wished they offered up at least the CC model standalone.

Anyone?

I just got myself a Rebirth about a month ago, and it's been a trip. Shipping from Germany with Dragonbox.de was amazingly fast, my only issue was with UPS locally once it was here, and I'm in Canada.

Also, I was going to upgrde my Rebirth to a 1ghz PCB when I had the money mostly because I like to hotrod out my stuff, but even the Rebirth has been awesome. Pity there's no 1ghz PCB's left but who knows. When the Pyra comes out, I'll want to get one of them too, and then I may decide to resell my Rebirth unless ED offers some kind of fantastic trade-in program or something.

Only thing is that I was a little underwhelmed with my OP when I got it, I had anticipated much more than it was, and discovered it was a little less than the hype, but even with that in mind, it's a fantastic little device. I worry that once the Pyra comes out that the Pandora will become a forgotten relic. So if you do get one, expect a Honda Civic, not a Ford Mustang and you'll be just as happy with it as the rest of us. :)

Hi all,

I'm looking to get a pandora rebirth/ghz for graphics development (The sgx revision on the classic is no longer supported - and the pcb/screen is really all I need - case/battery optional)

I note that it seems that individual components are in stock at dragonbox - is it sufficient to buy these? Will that be enough to stick together to get a 'working' pandora?

GHZ pcb:

https://www.dragonbox.de/en/pandora/225-pandora-1ghz-pcb.html

Battery:

LCD:

https://www.dragonbox.de/en/pandora/65-pandora-lcd-1.html

Case:

https://www.dragonbox.de/en/pandora/233-replacement-case-black.html

Case 'inside' bits:

https://www.dragonbox.de/en/pandora/235-replacement-case-platinum.html

Is there anything missing there? They all seem to say they're in stock....

The LCD cable, which is currently a hard part to find as it's a custom cable and out of production. I believe EvilDragon is only keeping a stock of them for repairs. Perhaps asking him directly he could sell it to you.

Damn... How about if I buy a 'classic' and a newer pcb? Will that work?

I swapped my broken rebirth pcb with the 1gb and it works great, although it wont charge from the charge port but it will charge via usb.

ED: Will there be consideration of a trade in program for the Pyras when they come out? Current owners of Pandoras being able to send in theirs for some kind of a credit towards a Pyra, and the pre-owned Pandoras with a little TLC, could then be resold as pre-owned units perhaps?

Well, don't underestimate the sales - when I put 10 Pandoras on stock, it takes about 2 days until they're sold out.


But no, it's financially not possible to offer a trade-in program - unless you're fine getting 50 EUR for your old Pandora.

I wonder who wants to sale the fine Pandora. After I discovered that Linphone was ported to the pandora I can allready use it as a Phone in combination with my sipgate account *wuhu

Would you care to make a video of how well linphone works ? I'd be interested to see it in action.  
Uhm i never made a video before, I could use my canon ixus for that. I also had a bunch of phone calls. People from 'the other side' told that they can easily understand me. Also i need to blankl out my phone numbers :ph34r:

Due to some circumstances, I cannot possibly afford the bundle, and I'm getting a little desperate at this point. I /REALLY/ need one and kinda wished they offered up at least the CC model standalone.

Have you checked the "Trading" section of this forum, located here? http://boards.openpandora.org/forum/51-trading/

That's where I got mine several years ago for a (relatively) good deal.

...BUMP.

Anyone by some chance STILL able to sell a CC/Rebirth?

Personal and Financial situation is much better now, hence the inactivity from my end. Long story. (=w= ;)

Though a part of me does want the Pyra, I still crave for the original Pandora's extensive library. That and it's older design just looks better in my personal opinion.

Also;

BUMP.

You DO realize this IS the trading section, correct...? That's the point of this thread, silly!

Sorry, wasn't paying attention when I wrote that! I was super tired at the time, disregard that...
