    That would be sweet as hell if that happens. If Ed can get them into people's hands orders should go up. I know here in Omaha my friends want to get one also but are waiting for me to get mine. They lived my pandora and was waiting for this. I just need it to show people here and I know at least 3 to 4 will get one for sure.

    I think it's: You can pay 400 now and then pay the rest using your voucher from link when your pyra is ready to ship.
    However my voucher exceeds the 345 euros amount so I'm not sure how that works. Ed will have to confirm though.

    Hey, I work for TI. I wonder if I can get them to send me there.

    I might also submit the Pyra for our "TI in it" segment of our internal newsletter. It won't reach many people, but it's definitely the right demographic.

    That would be nice, and bring a Pyra if you have one! I wonder why TI are sponsoring it this year; maybe since they ship Debian on BeagleBoard/Bone and other things (and obviously, it will be on the Pyra, and maybe GolDeliCo's OMAP5 eval boards).

    Don't know how it came in my mind that you build them. Good luck for the final stretch!

    @EvilDragon When will your TI contact has a prototype to work on the 3d acceleration? When the other prototype will be shiped? Or did I understand this wrong?

    And now we play the waiting game.

    I wonder if the Pyra will beat the GPD-Win to ship.

    Pyra Prototype... Notaz has said he had no interest in an x86 handheld in the past...

    My guess the other prototype orders should be shipping soon...

    It will start once all components have been ordered and arrived and all tweaks and everything are worked out. It is better that it is made right rather than made quickly.

    Oh okay, well then to me they are both in the "haven't shipped" category. The device isn't "shipped" in my opinion until consumers have one. Prototypes are nice though, and it sounds like Pyra is way out in front. Look forward to hearing more about timelines soon.

    Well I sent an email to the person who runs TI In It with some info about the Pyra and links to the press kit, wiki, and tech specs. I'll let you know if they decide to run it (they might want to wait until it's in production though).

    Nevermind - I had misinterpreted the context of 'voucher'.

    I think GPD might be a little quicker when they finally get to the mass production phase. They already have their funding, while ED only recently opened preorders for the Pyra. It is actually kinda hard to tell who is out front. GPD also has more people working on the Win, and they can throw more manhours and money at any issues that come up. It is quite possible that a big problem could be fixed on the Win quicker than a minor problem on the Pyra.

    @Grench you removed your post before I could reply. I hope ED's health doesn't suffer from his "heart being two sizes too large". :p
