Update #47:

"Dear Gemini backers!

A quick message that perk prices will be going up today.

As Gemini is now in production, the price of the Gemini perks on Indiegogo are going up to USD $499 for the WiFi and USD $599 for the 4G+WiFi Gemini perk. Anybody wishing to contribute to the Gemini campaign at the current perk prices should do so in the next few hours.

We will also send an additional update from the factory with pictures and videos shortly (also today).

Best regards,

Team Gemini"

"Anybody that has received an email stating that there is a parcel from or to Robin Parker from Hermes, rest assured that the correct address has been used. "

Also, a reminder to fill the keyboard selection sheet and to provide your telephone number in your order, if not already done.

Update #51:

The Perk/Order Checker Tool has been released! You can check your order here:

http://planetcom.co.uk/checker

Other news:

"We believe that the main issue is the inconsistent quality of the keyboard mat component. We are instrumenting further quality checks on the keyboard during the current production run."

The camera add-on is now in production and they'll be shipping it around mid-April.

Gemini will be supporting Android 8.1 in the near future, running kernel version 4.4, for all the produced Geminis!

I have to say with all the visits to the factory in China, quality control is not impressive! If the main selling point is the keyboard, we need something better than wobbling keys and a spacebar that requires precision to get it working. These major issues should have been sorted out by now!

Great news if only for the Android date bug that Google should have fixed years ago!

Do we know where Lineage OS is re. kernel, etc., and Gemini support? I would just as soon *never* boot into stock Android. Lineage OS with Fdroid and the non-Play Store and with no Gapps would certainly be my choice. This until Debian and/or Sailfish OS are usable/available.

Posted by: WG91 Apr 3 2018, 10:07 PM

LineageOS is currently in functioning beta build smile.gif https://forum.xda-developers.com/gemini-pda/development/rom-lineageos-14-1-geminipda-t3770821. RIL and some other stuff not yet working, please check second post to see what exactly.

Final update for 2018 released: Android 8.1 - Oreo for the Gemini being tested by Google, open beta of Sailfish 3.0.1 available in early 2019, updated Kali to be released soon, new version of TWRP released:
