@Mike Any update on that keyboard flipping worry some of us in the community had?

I’m refferring to my own post in this thread a few days ago:

To sum it up: Basically I worry that I won’t be able to flip my keyboard behind the Eve like I do with my Surface. Also you said that you opted for weaker magnets, something I don’t see as preferrable.

Customs are already cleared :wink:
But I don’t know if the prototype is physically in Lithuania, maybe they were just preparing papers in advance…


#267

You probably can’t clear customs if the parcel haven’t arrived yet right?

Though it might be the carrier claiming its been cleared :joy:


#268

Well the parcel is already in Europe, that I know for sure. There was a quite lengthy misunderstanding, they wanted me to declare the item and pay VAT again… It ended with them calling to apologize and say that it will be taken back from customs and be there soon. But, I think it might be possible to clear customs if the item is not in the country but already in Europe…

There are strong rumors, that Microsoft will announce a new device in April…


#270

If you’re talking about the SP5…
I’ve seen enough rumors that I automatically think any “news” about the SP5 is yet another speculation or reiteration of previously unconfirmed rumors.

So far the only somewhat reliable “hints” were just:

  1. MS patented a new pen and charging thingy
  2. Windows 10 Redstone 3 because the time matches
  3. Kaby Lake because it doesn’t make sense to use Skylake anymore

(Might be missing some)

None of the above were officially confirmed by MS


#271

From Briebart, Fox News or other fake news? :imp:


#272

Well I am super hyped at the moment.
I am going to get the prototype a few houers (at the latest in 6 houers).
Maybe I am the first? :wink:


#273

It’s going to be a race who first recieves it! :smiley:

I’m really looking forward to reading everyones experiences with the protoype! :slight_smile:


#274

Hahah, i’m living in Germany… But… possible… There is another low-end Windows-Phone which could be announced by MS in April… also strong rumors…


#275

Guys guys…
Everybody can get a sp5 when it comes out.
Not everybody can get an eve V.
This is enough for me.


#276

I think everybody can get an eve V when the webshop is open.


#277

Might have won :smiley:D
Recived it 10mins ago :slight_smile:
No US-Plug socket at work here. So i have to buy one so I can charge the V


#278

10mins ago?

Have fun and keep us informed.


#279

#281

That looks amazing. Congrats for being able to test the prototype. :grin:


#282
