Cosmo Communicator Campaign - Week 37 Update

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/cosmo-co...or#/updates/all
And to make another useless post; I was apparently a few minutes late with my post about it  
(or should I say  )

Hadn't seen your post when I started posting...
Sorry Gymbo, I didn't mean to steal your thunder by four minutes, but bizarrely UK 'Planet time' seems to align very well with NZ 'Normal person time' for some reason.  
Then again, I had just spent the previous six hours staring at the indiegogo page while tapping the refresh icon on the browser.

OK, since you spent six hours staring at the Indiegogo page and hitting refresh (you must have gotten sore fingers...), I will forgive you

Thank you for picking that gem out of the mud. If their estimates in Update #21 worked out, Planet Computers should be receiving the PR2 samples approximately today, and the mass production should commence in eleven or so days.

Very good news, and interesting that they have arranged a Cosmo backers meetup in Tokyo - I believe there's a lot of interest for this device in Japan.

If they're rolling off the line at end of August, any wild guess as to actual shipment? I wonder how long the actual assembly takes in the factory.

The first Gemini PCB mass production begun around Saturday, January 20, 2018 (Update #44). Final assembly of entire devices begun on Thursday, February 1, 2018 (Update #45) and was complete on Saturday, February 10 (Update #48). The [a href=\'index.php?showtopic=34795\']earliest post I have found here on OESF[/a] from a user who received their Gemini, says it arrived on Thursday, March 1, 2018. I got my (X25) Gemini on Wednesday, March 21, 2018.

How these numbers might translate to the Cosmo is anybody's guess.

We can do a little bit more than guess, the run will probably be bigger than the first Gemini one as they only made ~1,000 Geminis on the that run (with the x25), the device is a bit more complex but conversely they have manufacturing experience with the Gemini which should transfer to the Cosmo easily enough.

So probably a little longer, assuming no serious problems in production, 6 to 7 weeks after all the parts are delivered to the factory.

All the Cosmo parts are already delivered to the factory currently, so production speed will be faster this time around.

My own wild guess is that it will be a big surprise, one way or another.

But you folks' number-crunching is fascinating to ponder.

Thanks for the heads up maki.jouni, I devoured those articles with my coffee and toast this morning.  
I was wondering how it went for the Planet team in Tokyo, but was unable to find any articles online myself.  
Keep those links coming.
