Hello Eve family!
As promised here are the latest developments! We are updating you to keep you posted even when there are no new news.
Firstly I would like to ask you all guys to withhold from speculating. There is no discussion about V not shipping to backers! We have spent 3 years on this project and we have a huge amount of people wanting to buy V, some of the biggest magazines and influencers are looking forward to get Vs for review as well as we have an AMAZING community supporting us. Microsoft’s and Intel’s support is highest it has ever been. And everyone we show the V to is really impressed by it!
We have now done everything on supply chain and finance side to make sure that production will happen as soon as possible. We have paid for all of the components and made sure production lead times are the lowest. So all of the Indiegogo devices have been paid for to our manufacturers.
####So with all that being said. Here’s the update:
1.We can’t provide you an update on the screen QC status yet due to our supplier’s strict request. We will let you know the situation once there are major news!
2.For some time now we have been reaching out to all the possible sources who could assist us on finding alternative supply source. Here is the list of the leads we have as backup options:
Here is the little poll as well, to get the community’s opinion.
###What screen would you see as the best alternative to current V screen?
We don’t have the spec sheets of all of them yet:)
- JDI 12.3 inch 3000x2000
- AUO 12.0 inch 2880x1920 (Lenovo)
- Sharp 12.3 inch 2880x1920 panel (1:1500 contrast ratio, 400 nits, LTPS, IGZO, low power consumption)
- LG 12.3 2736x1824 (SP5 panel)
- BOE 12.6 2880x1920 (Asus transformer pro)
- Panasonic 12.0 inch 2160x1440 (Huawei Matebook)
WE UNDERSTAND how frustrating the delay from our side can be. Let it be known that also for Eve there is only pain for from this, no gain.
###One thing I can assure you is that V is an amazing device and you will love it! We really can’t wait to ship it to you. You really made a great choice!
We will let you know immediately as we have major news!
And for the last note we are really not going or disappearing anywhere Here is the picture from our meetup with some backers in Helsinki the other day.
