What would be your alternative suggestion if he can't get them in lower quantities?I can't honestly see many people jumping for that offer.
Yes, that's the one you need. It'll be compatible with all major (and most minor) carriers.I'm still not sure which version is best for Canada. I just got the US one.
Well EvilDragon sanctioned the tracker page linked below, it's not claiming the 750 Goal only concerned EU and Standard units.Oh jeeze. I didn't realize that the 750 goal only concerned EU and Standard units. I can appreciate why, but dammit, there goes my enthusiasm.
"Including the ca. 70 unclaimed pre pre-orders, we're 87% on the way towards that 750 unit milestone!"
He could do a test purchase for the US prototype(s), and if everything works out he could could buy 111 or so from them for the preordered US ones, and as he has money assemble a few more US ones at a time to send to Link.Probably not, but he can't really leave the US customers in the lurch either.
This is what I'm hoping for. When he has time, I hope he'll weigh in on this.He could do a test purchase for the US prototype(s), and if everything works out he could could buy 111 or so from them for the preordered US ones, and as he has money assemble a few more US ones at a time to send to Link.
True, however I don't think he will just want those modules sitting around unused. To prevent that he would need to make those boards, which adds cost, and if he assembles full units those will also just sit around. The cost for 400 unpaid for US units is a bit much to be covered by everyone else, especially if he needs to get 750 preorders to pay for a first batch of 1000. The numbers just don't work, and I am not even looking at the finances. That is why I asked the questions.I don't think he actually has to sell a minimum number of US models during the pre-order period to go ahead with the order, he just needs to make enough money to cover production costs which include enough EU chips to cover all the EU orders and the minimum order of US Chips. Whether that money initially comes specifically from US orders isn't really important, as long as he can ultimately sell them all.
