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.

I may well have inadvertantly won that one. Got mine last tuesday. Typing this outside (in the cool) at night in Brisbane. The backlight is amazing and I am still able to easily type this in near total darkness.

I can report that the cosmo keyboard is close to perfect. A bit more "clicky" that the gemini, so it has the feeling of a mechanical keyboard rather than buttons. The space bar issues of the gemini are a long lost memory. I am touch typing this with my usual closest finger method and thumbs on the spacebar without missing a beat. Oh, and to rub it in, I am sitting outside in the cool air in near darkness typing this on the backlit keyboard smile.gif

Seriously though, I've had the gemini for over 18 months, and can honestly say that the cosmo keyboard is better.

Short summary of the just released update, regarding the schedule for my own configuration (Fin/Swe)

few quotations from update:
"following quality checks"
"We hope to complete... ...assembly and packaging... ....by the end of next week"
"This also means smaller language quantities"

So all Cosmo perks should be assembled and packed at end of next week. (This should also include quality control). After all perks are at pallet (Including few rejected and reassembled unit) pallet will be shipped to Hong Kong. And in few days it will be sended to UK. At UK it will be few days at customs and in few days all perks will be at distribution center and from there dispatched within few days. And looks like last mile carrier hand it over, within in day or two.

So looks like I might receive my Cosmo:
best case scenario / (worst case scenario(disinclude weekends or holidays)).
7+(5)+2+2+3+2+1+1+(1)=18/(24) ->
assembly & packing + (reject & reassembly) + transport to HK + dispatch from HK + transport to UK + UK customs + transport to dispatch center + last mile carries short route + (long route)

10th/(16th) December, and I didn't count weekends or anything, just days.There might be change that I might be wrong… Let’s hope that I will, just little more patience…

After all, Thank God Planet Computers have taken enough time for QC and QC have been wide enough, that they spotted flaws at end of the assembly line. Though it means that my relatively rare combination (Fin/Swe) is still "placed" on IndieGoGo.

If you guys at PlanetComputer read this thread, Thank You and Keep up good working... It's good to hear three pallets are already importeed to UK.
