We had a similar thread in the Gemini's subforum, I guess we might open one here too!

New update released yesterday: agreement with the Chinese factory now signed, they have now chosen to keep the P70 as the Cosmo's CPU instead of switching to the new P90, they'll attend CES 2019.

New update #14 is out:

PCB now working with the internal display, external display now works too, mechanical mock-up has now been approved.

Yes, and the tooling has started for all metal and plastic mechanical components of the Cosmo.

Hm, I used to joke about the apparent 11-day weeks of Planet Computers... but in 22 weeks, we've gotten 14 "weekly" (as they call them) Cosmo updates, which actually is, on average, one every eleven days... Oh well, it'll come when it's done.

Update 15 is out:

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/cosmo-co...59#/updates/all

They may have mentioned it earlier, but the outside screen has a separate processor, and they claim that it makes it independent of the OS in the main screen...

I'm guessing that'll make it harder to customise, control, &c…?

They also said something about defining what kind of "messages" the two parts can send to one-another, and if that is "known" by the OS, then it should be possible? In terms of customizing the LOOK it should be quite straightforward?? And sending over buttons or menu items should make "toggling" the "right" switches possible in the OS, so it should be possible to do almost anything, unless it is restricted by f.ex. the size of items sent (watching a big video on the outside screen might be impossible, and would be kind of impractical anyway...)?

But anyway, update 16 is out:

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/cosmo-co...59#/updates/all

Don't really remember much about what they said, but of course, you (all of the maybe 200+? people reading this tread) might have different preferences than me, and find all of it very interesting! unsure.gif

In the video they are making an emergency call... I hope that the antenna was attached to a network simulator with the device being registered on it and not on a live network smile.gif

Either that or in the next update video, we'll see the fire truck arrive and put the fire out on the Cosmo.......

Based on the status bar of the main screen, they had no network coverage at all. I'd guess that's why they were dialing an emergency number, as the Cosmo otherwise probably wouldn't even have botherd trying to making a call, while dialing an emergency number probably forces any smartphone to try anyway, while looking for any network. As the text of Update #18 points out "that the Cover Display is operating in debug engineering mode", it could also be that the Cosmo didnn't actually try making any call, and that 112 was a simple number to dial in the demo.

Were they to dial any other "real" number, at least some of us would certainly try calling that number, just to see who, if anyone, would answer. Since Planet Computers, as far as I know, have no published phone number, they'd need a burner phone or a network simulator, and also make VERY sure nobody actually has, or might soon get, any "real" number they'd dial. Since "everybody" knows what 112 is, I'd guess it's convenient for that reason too, as long as they don't actually dial it for real.

And for those who have selected "Other" as their keyboard layout they now have an online form to fill inn with your actual choice, AND they want you to fill it in before 1st of July.

The same goes for those wanting/needing the Verizon version for USA...
