Hermes predict I'll get my Gemini tomorrow - although the weather may play a part.

@thread

i received notification from UPS this morning that my gemini was shipping from hong kong via 'worldwide saver' -- which, i suspect, means it will be some time indeed before it arrives here in the US. but at least it's shipping! FWIW i'm order #87.

Congrats Eliyahu! On UPS' page, Worldwide saver is described as having "delivery within one or two business days from Asia, Europe, and Latin America", so you might receive your Gemini quite soon:

My order (#923)  is still showing as 'Order Placed' rather than 'Locked'. IS that because I went for 'The Gemini Bundle - All In' perk rather than just the device?
The order is still showing 'Estimated Delivery Date December 2017' so I have no idea of when I am likely to receive the goodies

Planet has recently commented that they have all the accessories for the bundle in stock, so the shipping at least won't be delayed because of them.

Did you get yours Rosie?

Snow seems to have held things up by a day.  We're not good with snow in the UK as we rarely ever get anything serious.  Hermes are saying tomorrow at the moment but we'll see.

Hermes have changed their mind and decided that today is a good day to deliver my Gemini.  I'm tempted to agree with them.  Unboxing photos on here if/when it arrives.

Mine too: it is saying "with local courier" at the moment. The snow isn't particularly bad right now where I am, so I may get it today.

And it has just been delivered, but I'm at work so I'll have to control my impatience and wait until I get home before doing anything with it.

Thankfully I'm working from home today, so in all their tedious glory...

The box, you can tell it's the box from its boxiness:

The actual real box rather than the Hermes one.  Please note considerable self-control demonstrated by Hermes packaging definitely not at all ripped off and strewn all over the place.

THAT picture, the clever infographic one.

And finally!  A view of the beast itself snuggled in its lair.

Last one.  Everything in the box unpacked and laid out.

Thank you for the pictures!

Obviously, when you're ready, we'll all gratefully receive more pictures/info - whatever you're willing to share about the Gemini.

Only that it's a bit fab really.  Better than I expected and I had high hopes for it.  The keyboard is great - I'm using it to type this.  I've mostly got it working how I'd like but it  doesn't seem to want to let me turn of the keyboard clicks and haptic feedback (yes, I have disabled them in the keyboard app).

Most of the apps I've set up so far work the only irritating one being the Barclaycard one - it doesn't scroll properly.  Next job is to put Debiam on it and give that a bit of a kick.

Rosie

p.s. Sorry, I know this one's a bit off topic.
