Phew. That still took longer than expected - but I finally have good news for you. No, the cases are not here - yet. But I've arranged a pick-up for UPS tomorrow and the box with 50 cases is packed up and if UPS doesn't mess up, they'll finally arrive at my place early next week! What has happened, you ask? These should've arrived last week already...? Yes. And it was really annoying, doing daily phonecalls to catch up with everything. It felt like a déja-vù - the case was what delayed the Pandora for quite some time as well. Well, the now created cases with 3 different materials (so I can test and check the best one). Yes, they're all polycarbonate, but are still different materials. So they all look and feel a bit different. Additionally, they used a color coating on a few cases to show what's possible. Don't worry - it's not the same as painting the case (which is what happened with the Pandora). Coating is a proper way to add effects or paint. It's the same technique GPD uses for their devices. It's almost impossible to rub it off or wear it out. I've attached a few pictures. I'll receive these sample cases as well and will test the coating (yes, you'll see videos of that). According to my contact, they look better in reality than on the pictures. One especially looks like it loved to collect fingerprints - don't worry, I won't choose that one That's the status on the cases. Now, let's hope they'll assemble nicely and everything fits! But I've got some more news for you: The LCD Cables have arrived! The samples of the latest revision of the LCD Cables have arrived. I'll spend the weekend testing them. I expect them to be final though. The length has been measured multiple times with paper and foil material and the traces haven't changed, so there's no reason they shouldn't fit. The DPad is now final as well! As mentioned in some of my last posts, we've tweaked the DPad design a bit as the one we had on the keymat was a bit mushy. I received a printed version early this week, and could finally test that all issues are fixed. It feels perfect and works fine with the keymat. The moulds are already being updated and I should receive some samples within the next few weeks. The DPad was the last thing that needed to be fixed with the keymat - so the next samples should also be the final ones! If you want to see what we tweaked, I've attached various STL files for you to compare them yourselves. So much for today - hopefully with very good news next week!
