Folks lets be honest with ourselves here. Konstantinos has become a pathological liar.
How many Eve’s are there to ship, a few hundred or few thousand. They finished an audit that should have been over in one or two days. Lets talk about the components list, mainboard, case, kickstand, harddrive, screen, power adapter, power cable, add on circuit boards for camera etc. One person could could count 1000’s of these over one weekend, never mind a team.
This is all just more delay tactics. We were told there was a investor. Well any investor would most likely want the announcement to happen sooner rather than later in order to stop the PR nightmare that exists for this product now. That is if they wanted to protect their investment! It is old tech now, plain and simple, 2 years old for everything except the screen and the 1tb hdd’s.
All the bench marks mean nothing now with all the issues that have recently come out in relation to Intel chips.
Some of us are waiting for 2 years for a working device now. My guess is the investor we were told about is not on board as we have been led to believe.
The only group of components that was ordered in advance in large amounts were those that were needed to complete the HEB and EB orders, which still have not been 100% completed. Quiet a few of those orders are either waiting on warranty replacements or refunds?
Eve ran into severe cash flow problems due to the many many issues “that were outside their control”. They tried to use funds from the flash sale to complete the HEB and EB orders and this created more problems than it solved.
For the flash sale devices it is most likely these orders were fulfilled on a batch basis, by this I mean they ordered for example a 100 sets of components, delivered them and then waiting for the payment processors to release the funds just for those devices delivered, then “rinse and repeat”
Previous photos of Eve waiting to be shipped were just PR exercises to try to stop a revolt among the many waiting customers hoping they could stop the tide of refunds. The Eve team continued to accept orders on the website even though they have been unable to deliver on previous orders.
If you want a device that will actually be delivered and actually get regular driver and bios updates go with a dell 2 in1 5285 or 5290. The screen is obviously not as good but at least you will get the device if you order it. But other than the screen, both devices are far superior to the V.
There are many problems that have not been addressed with the Eve and are unlikely to be addressed until much later. Simply because there is no priority on updating drivers or bios, or replacing such simple things as faulty keyboards.
Then we must consider the Eve’s teams inability to ship the missing accessories to customers, accessories that do not require assembly???.
If you have been on this forum from the beginning you would now be well aware of the blatant lies that we have been told as waiting customers time and time again.
The modus operandi here is lie, then lie some more, make a new promise or commitment, break that, then lie some more. This pattern is very clear when you have been on this forum long enough.
If you can, go to your payment processors and cancel you order and get a refund. If there is a investor Eve will not need your funds until they actually have some V’s assembled and ready to ship. The so called investor, if there actually is one, should be able to provide the cash flow to assemble all remaining orders and warranty replacements.
The problem for a lot of us is we can’t go to our payment processors because we ordered 2 years ago, we must wait for the mythical promises to come true.
At this stage for all new purchasers it would be prudent for you to cancel your orders and get refunds through your payment processors. Don’t worry, if the investor is actually real then as soon as you see Eve start mass shipments that you can confirm from forum posts and the tech press sites then you can order in confidence knowing you will get the device you ordered in a timely manner. Reduce the risk to yourself before you end up like many of us HEB’s and EB’s.
I really wish things were different but they are not.
