Happy Sunday to everyone:slight_smile:
So when it comes to the timelines here’s what I have to say:
We are sharing information as we get it. We learned that the best thing we can do as Eve is to tell the truth to people who made us.
Based on previous experience we try to withold from making assumptions regarding timelines.
What I mean is that when we get delivery timeline from Sharp of up to 4 weeks we say as it is instead of telling that they will come in 2 and then coming up with excuses. When we don’t have information to share we don’t share it.
The fact that we did not have concrete information up to this point does not mean that we are not doing anything We are having talks to Sharp and all the partners daily to make sure we can get our parts as soon as possible.
The main reason Sharp screen delivery takes a while is because it is a slow process. That’s it. We expedited it as much as possible and we now finally have delivery timelines.
As mentioned before a lot of the struggles we are having is partly to the fact that we chose not to have investors in our company telling us what to do. As a result we can’t throw money at the problems. But all of this experience makes us as a team much more prepared for whatever there is to come. So we are sure that as long as we have this awesome community behind us we will change this industry for better!
When you think of V and compare the Kabylake R devices the main advantage V has is the battery life (and amazing screen now) . I really can’t wait to see the battery performance of new Acer device.
Guys remember that soon we will have devices shipped and internet will be full of V reviews this community will be working on the next project and many more exciting things will happen.
No amount of frustration will affect the outcome right now. We will deliver a great device and then have fun going though pictures of community members around the world using V!
I agree that it is very hard to not have clear dates. So here is what we can do about it
While the timeline that we got from Sharp now is delivery in up to 4 weeks and as Eve we can’t tell more as it would be speculating.
I can tell you my personal opinion. In my personal opinion Hyper early birds will get devices shipped in around 2-3 weeks after we receive the screens. So after we get screens in 2-4 weeks it will take another 2-3 weeks to ship.
After shipping Hyper early birds we will know how much time exactly it will take to ship Limited birds.
Meanwhile we are all waiting let us know what else you would like to know.
Have a great week ahead everyone! I hope we will have some amazing news to share this week!
