Hello!

Long time follower, first time poster (I think).

I know there's always been the policy of "When it's ready, it's ready", but do we have any broad updated best case and worst case (pun intended) scenarios in terms of the release? Apologies is this has been asked 134322133 times already.

Cheers,

It'll take two months™. Always two months™. Of course how long two months™ is in normal months is open to debate.

I'll leave for Greece on Monday and move back Friday evening.
The courier is ready, the new company as well, I'll be personally there and will try to take care of the move there.
So let's hope we can do that without too many problems.
This might be a good time to bring along a checklist with a tic box for every piece of equipment and resulting case part you are expecting.

Have a safe trip!

Well, given that "cases" is the only thing missing before mass production now, and ED is planning on going personally on Monday so they can't exactly "miscommunicate" directly to his face, I am the most optimistic that he's Two Months(tm) away that I've ever been.
But I've said something similar many times before.

I will count it as a loss if he doesn't personally see the moulds go out thedoor and to the new producer

If you all remember ED has gone there to move the moulds before and they have talked him out of it.

There isn't a "live" schedule being officialy kept, as there is no deadline, so to speak (which I think is good for this type of project).

I think You can make out the scenarios by reading news threads from the last couple of months; once in a while ED brings up a listing of components to be acquired (like the PCB's or case materials) and processes needed to be done (like testing this or that element), along with the time estimated for them (it was done at least once, listing lead times in weeks- look for this). Your best bet is, I think, to filter ED's posts in this forum section and go back day by day until You come upon such a listing, write the predicted times down, and then start reading again from there and make notes to these time estimates.

e: Welcome to the forums :)

Going to have fun with this while waiting...



ZTE Axon 7 (snapdragon 820) 1440p OLED, nice speakers
+ Q9 Bluetooth keyboard + mouse + gamepad (EDIT: the alpha keys are ok, dpad terrible)
+ "50000"mAh power bank

Need to figure out a solution for DIY hinge. The phone itself would get inserted into the 'protective cover' which is reinforced and hinged with the keyboard. Fone can then be removed. Without the battery on bottom it's just too top heavy to be comfortable.

With powerbank I measured 25 hours of continuous screen-on time running Snes9X

Holding it for a while, lid is TOO HEAVY. Battery would need to be removed. Looks like this goes on ice for a bit, as I need ze fone forr otzer zings..

That looks great.

Bu did you really mean 50.000mAh?
Seems a little much.
Thanks for catching that - i had meant to put 50000 in "" quotes - this is the claimed capacity by the manufacturer. Since the runtime is roughly 4-5x of the 3250 mAh battery, i guess it's around 13000-16000 actual mAh

One device I really liked was the Japanese SHARP ZAURUS. Fantastic screen resolution and nice little clam shell unit.
Hell yes.

I recently learned Haskell on my Z.

I'm hoping the pyra will replace it fur palmtop hacking.

We'll see..

Yes, although throughout 2018 there was only one gap between news posts longer than this one. Once there is any news to report, I hope there will be a news post or at least a twitter post pretty quickly.
