I don't want to intrude with questions whose answers are already known, but
back in January there were estimates of "five to seven months" with regard to
"shipping", by which I presume that the final hardware was meant:
However, there was also the matter of prototypes being made. This was covered
in the February update:
"We might get lucky and have the PCBs back, if so I will post photographs."
The March update suggests that the prototypes were still waiting for RAM:
"Mike is following up on pricing for Samsung DDR3 RAM, which appears to be
available. I want one other guaranteed supply of a completely different RAM IC
and I will tell him to go ahead with the 10 samples… but not until we have an
absolute guarantee of availability. Then once the samples are done we have a
clear and extremely simple and straightforward production schedule to follow."
The April update made a mention of another source of RAM, but nothing new
about the prototype schedule:
Are there any further updates on this situation? I imagine that the production
schedule is more or less "when it is ready", as I have always understood it,
but I did wonder whether there had been further progress with the prototypes.
