Me and @Thor are @CES in the US now. Meeting all of our key parnters like Microsoft, Intel, Sharp, etc for Eve V project review.
Meanwhile as promised find key updates below:
1. EU Limited birds
We have just uploaded tracking info for the EU limited birds to Backerkit. You should receive an email with your tracking info. Also you can see the tracking from your backerkit account
2. Second batch limited birds + 1TB drives update
We are receiving the rest of 1TB drives this Friday and we have now received more housings to the factory as well. There are quality issues with the housing still (60-70% is good) but supplier understands that its their fault so they will send over more housings to us and we will then kickoff the production. We will share with you the production schedule as soon as we get it form the factory this week.
3. US meetup with community!
We would be super happy to see you. It will be fun! Now we have 2 options:
We can have a meetup lunch on Thursday 11th of Jan during the CES
We can meet on 18th evening in Seattle!

4. Flash sale delivery updates
We will be sendig out newsletter next week to flashsale guys updating with the latest production shcedule for their device!
The reason we are moving to email updates is because now we are having much more than just 2 batches of devices to deliver with different delivery times. Community is not designed to provide individual shipping updates to the users. We will use email as a clean and precise way to community order related updates.
Also as you know over the past year or so we used the community as a platform to communicate the status of the HEB and LB that backed us in Indiegogo. We did this because there was not much to do in the community in terms of crowd-developing new ideas as the V was already finished. However now with Project B as well as Donald Dock we’ve got projects in development that fired up the engines of the Eve Community again to full throttle. Also this year we will be working on the next big thing and we would like not to flood the community with identical support inquires that are better handled through email.
With this, we’ll be moving the updates about the Flash Sales away from the Eve Community to a direct email newsletter for buyers of the different flash sales - so e.g. people from the flash sale from the 4th of December will get the updates that are relevant for them directly into their mail.
P.S. I wanted to let you know that due to the time difference and really packed schedule for us here in US. It will take me more time to answer the PMs and community messages. We are in CES this week and in Seattle next week. I’ll make sure to spend more time in community when in Seattle.
Thank you all and wish us luck with US partner meetings
