There were also this quotation on IndieGoGo by HIB. So end of day tommorrow....

“Stock for some of the Cosmo orders has been allocated, even if it still in transit to the warehouse in Europe which will process our European orders. As Europe is home to most of our regional keyboard layouts, our factory prefers to manufacture the larger quantities first – US / Japanese keyboard units. Some of the regional layouts have been made, hence why some orders were locked. We expect to fulfil most perks by the end of November to early-December.”

I seem to recall that during the Gemini campaign, backers found nuggets of information using other outlets like Facebook.

It's so good to see that PC has learned from their mistakes and for Cosmo has prioritised keeping backers updated using the campaign platform itself....no wait...

Update #32 out now

The European shipment was stuck awaiting freight documents. It will reach the EU in the weekend, so they hope to ship out the first EU Cosmos to backers during next week. They've had more quality control issues than they expected, so they're only a bit past halfway through the run, scheduled to be done four days ago, but well, they're making progress. Also, there are a few new Cosmo Communicator How-To Videos.

Nice review, though I don't think the Psion Series 5 had a better keyboard. On both of my units, I had to hit the keys firmly and dead-center to get a consistent typing experience, so I prefer the Gemini over the Psion, and thus I have high hopes for the Cosmo keyboard.

Anyway, since this "Indiegogo" thread has become "latest Cosmo Coverage on any platform", here's any unboxing video the YouTube algorithm threw my way today: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7p3DgWdjQYA
It's purely an unboxing, followed by showing a powered OFF Cosmo - serial number [prefix]000014, it seems - from, basically, every angle. Oh, well. There's also this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVBxVVw85LM
It shows some supposed Cosmo accessories (the usual hub, HDMI adapter and extra charger). Their boxes says "Gemini", which might be how things are right now, but then the reviewer shoved the Cosmo into a Gemini leather pouch (and, somewhat later, also identified it as such), seemingly unaware of the Cosmo-specific pouch. Not sure the latter video is worth watching, but, well, it's a 50-subscriber channel. Gotta start somewhere.

Psion 5 keyboards varied a little. I used about 6 over the years, but for me, ALL were better than the Gemini I'm typing this on! (Though I think they vary a bit, too; mine's a second-batch one.) The Gemini's keys are slightly too loose, and wobble too much; they're fairly forgiving of being pressed off-centre sideways, but less so of being pressed above or below, especially below. (The space bar gives me particular trouble, though quite a few other keypresses fail to register.)

OTOH, the Psion keyboard is a very high bar; the Gemini's still better than any other small keyboard I've seen! And I gather Planet have made improvements, so I'm hopeful about the Cosmo.
