First, I think this is great that things are progressing beyond ideas and discussions. Da Blitz and all of the involved, thank you so much for doing all this!

I cannot help you with any technical stuff but I am eagerly watching and am ready to spend the money to get the toy designed by your team. I am sure that there are others like me.

I don't want to take any of your time but could somebody who knows explain to non-techies how we will be able to obtain a device designed by you.

I've read that you are only working on the motherboard, and that we will be able to order the separate components from different companies (reasons: no distribution, no body design issues for Da Blitz, and no FTC approvals). This means, that somebody will have to design the body. Does this mean that I will separately order the motherboard, screen and the body (anything else?) and then will have to assemble it myself? How much expertise would be required for that? Will soldering be required?

Alternatively, Da Blitz may sell the design to some company that we will be dealing with. This company could be Sharp. If this does not work out, could somebody here help put these devices together for some profit for the rest of us?

So, basically, I would like to know whether those of us who have not progressed beyond mere users will be able to enjoy this fantastic (from the discussions it appears to be so) device at some point in the future. If any assembling is required, will mere mortals be able to put it all together?

If this is too early to talk about the end users, then I can wait.

i dont see why thats funny, i think its a good idea

do you now how hard it is to get a screwdriver on a plane these days, you Oldies back in the good old days had it easy. now days we have to go on 20 hour trips with no gadgets and we enjoy it!!

always wanted to say that, anyway i dont think that a screwdriver in the stylus is such a bad idea if we can pull it off (i think i ahve other things to worry about first) with the size of some of the screws i will be using it would be convinent to not have to find and buy a special screwdriver

actually instead of watching just throw more wierd ideas at me, so far we have had some that will push the device into the relem of PDA icon smile.gif
