Happy to see more people getting their Vs! We are having an intense trip here in the US right now having a lot of partner meetings. Here is the short update for you:
1. Limited birds & 1TB upgrades assembly starts next week in time to be shipped before Chinese New Year
We have finally received production schedule from the factory and Vs will be in production starting mid of next week. Production of Limited birds and 1TB upgraders is targeted to be over on 22nd of January. We have met Emdoor’s management at CES and made sure they understand that Vs have to be shipped before CNY to the end users.
As for the 1TB upgraders all of the 1TB SSDs are at the factory floor. We have received SSDs directly from Samsung distributor. We are using 2 SSD models from Samsung for production PM961 and PM981 that offer same in terms of battery, performance in the V. Around 80% of the SSDs are PM981 the rest is PM961. Samsung told us that we would need to wait till March to get more PM981 as performance is the same we can interchange them. We are mentioning this as transparency is what got us so far and will stay Eve’s core value!
2. CES so far
We have met bunch of our partners already at CES such as Intel, Microsoft, Sharp and Samsung and they are all very excited about V and our next projects. We are having their support and they will help us push Emdoor. We have all agreed that one of the main challenges for production is the ODM new to premium supply chain. Also it seems that most big companies have similar struggles with production delays but they are not made visible.
