I worry less about PC and more about the effect of a crash-out Brexit on Cosmo production and shipping.

As payments were handled by Indiegogo in the US, the factory is in China and the main warehouse is in Hong Kong, I doubt the crowdfunded Cosmos would be affected much, though shipments to the EU would better not be routed via the UK. What might get nasty post-Brexit, I think, is if EU customers has to order new things from, or have faulty units repaired in, the UK. Planet Computers has a partner for the market in Japan. Perhaps they'll also need one to handle repairs and further sales in the EU.

Disclaimer: I'm not a subject expert, there may be issues I can't think of. I'm just sharing my thoughts, while waiting for the next official update.

Thank you for a more optimistic approach than mine. I like yours better.

FYI
QUOTE(Cosmo Communicator Campaign - Week 42 Update)
Questions about importing into Europe

We plan to import Cosmo units on bulk into Europe to the UK (before the latest Brexit deadline) and ship them out EU backers from the UK. So there should be no extra duties payable.

Hopefully this puts Brexit concerns at ease a bit.

Update #25 is out, telling that the Cosmo has been approved for Google Mobile Services, meaning it will be able to run the licensed version of various Google services and apps, such as Play Store, Maps, Search and what not.

Are the Google Mobile Services the same as on the Gemini?  If so, was there ever any real doubt about them?

I think this has more to do with formal approvals, rather than anything related to actual functionality.

Back on Nougat, my Gemini used to say, somewhere in the About phone section of the settings, something akin to not being approved for Google services, yet they worked just fine all along. Currently, on Oreo, my Gemini, claims to have a serial number of 0123456789ABCDEF, which, obviously, is inaccurate, be it in a, mostly, irrelevant way. As a nerd or geek, I can live with that.

However, as the Cosmo, reasonably, aspires to be a "real", if fairly niche, mainstream product, rather than the pioneering device, for the specially interested, that is the Gemini, Planet Computers reasonably has to get from "well, it works" to "it works well", as selling a device complaining about not being properly licensed or showing a serial number, suggesting the device might have been hacked, or something, probably wouldn't be very well received among a more general population.

Hi guys (i'm new here happy.gif )
I just received a mail from Planet stating they expect the Cosmo will be ready for shipping end of this month (Order placed in Juli) so the brexit wont be an issue. They will send us the tracking details once it is shipper. So fingers crossed that there wont be a delay rolleyes.gif .
