Thanks for stepping up and letting us know about your concerns!
As far as I know, we never planned to or communicated a plan to offer Vs in the order people were signed up on the I want one!-page. It’s always been about getting a notification when sales start, so you don’t have to keep an eye on the community 24/7 or miss out on a chance to buy one.
As someone already mentioned with a link to iKirin’s message, we will announce the web shop opening ahead of time, with date and time. That announcement is actually coming up fairly soon! And it will also include the final prices for the various models. We would have presented all of this information much earlier, but then again, we’d planned to ship Vs much earlier. When we do announce and open the web shop, we want to do it from a situation where we actually can open the shop and can deliver Vs within a reasonable time.
Rumors are rumors for a reason – if they were true they’d be news updates . As things are, all IndieGoGo backers should be able to show off their Vs to their families and friends over Christmas dinner! Sales will open this year, though with so little year left, we may not be able to ship web shop orders before 2018. This all of course, will be communicated before then in more specific and more final terms.
I hope that this cleared up some things. Should you have additional questions, you are of course free to ask them!
