OR you are one of these many chinese startups that can throw out such devices like crazy. I doubt they all are multi billion dollar companies. But they often sit right at the source of all needed parts.As often said: If you have millions of USD lying around, things are a lot easier as you can simply do stuff when you want, without planning more careful.
Clearly being right at the source of where all the parts are produced will help improve TTM but don’t forget the crowd-sourced nature of the Pandora/Pyra projects, which has obviously extended TTM... Or the consumer-protecting regulations, which are generally stronger in the EU than in China.Thanks for the status update. All in all it sounds we are getting finaly there...eventualy. ^^

Its really annoying to see how hard it is to achive the same in Europe, Pyra development shows that there are still alot of things that need to improve to compete with China, when it comes to help for startups and building electronic devices. (I'm pretty sure it's also much harder to do this in the USA, not only in Erope).
It only can get better from here, at least I hope so.
Oh, well, they're not often producing anything but just reselling stuff they find there.OR you are one of these many chinese startups that can throw out such devices like crazy. I doubt they all are multi billion dollar companies. But they often sit right at the source of all needed parts.
Yupp, that's also a well known tactic. ^^ Many western companies do this since ages too. I guess our german "Pearl" shop would not even exist if they didn't buy cheap chinese products and resell it as super fancy gimmicks in germany.Oh, well, they're not often producing anything but just reselling stuff they find there.
Want an example?
Take the PeakAGo, for example:
From what I’ve read - and correct me if I’m wrong, PCXT - I don’t think PCXT is actually suggesting that we do that, just trying to extrapolate from what we already know to apply their engineering experience and calculate estimates.@PCXT
Let me get this straight. You would like us to hold off about six months so a statistically representative sample, liIely 60+, cases can be sacrificed in wear jigs costing tens of thousands of Euros to establish the wear characteristics of a <20 Euro easily swapped case?
Folks, just think of cases a bit like tires on a car. Plan to replace them every few tens of thousands of pocket insertion cycles. If they last forever in your use case great! If they do not, you are getting a whole lot of use out of your Pyra under severe conditions and a fresh case every few years should not be a big deal.
This plus 12 days. There's no patches currently recorded on the git instances that are linked, although it's always possible with git that people haven't pushed recently, and once they do it'll go back and fill in the history. And I've not heard whether ED's received the painted samples yet, or whether he's been able to build and send out any more prototypes; he's been silent on his personal twitter for the past few weeks, and only made a few shop twitter posts about mobile phones and things as far as I can see.So, what's the current status of everything?
