Hi guys (i'm new here  )
I just received a mail from Planet stating they expect the Cosmo will be ready for shipping end of this month (Order placed in Juli) so the brexit wont be an issue. They will send us the tracking details once it is shipper. So fingers crossed that there wont be a delay   .

Welcome to the club!

To clarify, think Planet said in recent update that the 'first batch' of Cosmos will start shipping by end of the month. However, depending upon the total number of orders and where you are in the order queue, you may or may not get your Cosmo from the first batch. If not, yours could be from the next batch.

And to be clear, I'm not saying whether you will or won't get one from the first batch. Just trying to explain how this works for you and otheres.

Hope this makes sense.

And more info from Planet's recent Week 42 Update....

Based upon them saying they have 4000 PCB's, assume it means the 'first batch' to ship out will have 4000 Cosmo's minus some used for testing or don't meet specs, etc.

So, if your order is within this number of units, you should be getting one from first batch I think.....

We shall see.....

Production has started!

Big news! We have started production!

Production has indeed started this week, with 4000 Cosmo PCBs being produced this week.

First Cosmo units are now scheduled to be assembled next week and the assembly and packaging schedules will continue during all of September.

We now expect that the first Cosmo Communicator perks will be shipped out to backers in about two weeks.

Have placed my order in November last year, (#8xx) and got no mail yet. So, I think the shipping date may also depend on keyboard selection (some keyboard layouts might have not been delivered to Planet yet).  At least it has been this way with the Gemini. My keyboard layout is German. What is yours?

Firsts, not all, Cosmo units are under assembly and packing. Assembly and packing will continue during all of September.

Planet must be near a black hole or something (or maybe we are?): They actually kept the "deadline" for the update:

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

Really nothing more than a "things are progressing more or less according to plan", but that in it self is quite positive...

The pouch has a holder for a stylus... I wonder if there will be an official stylus from Planet? Love the new site layout too.

So here is few highlights from our last update...

First, something about schedule... Sorry about that I'm reading this update like devil reads bible, but reading these update between lines, you know what is going on.

"There was a short delay"    
"this has taken a few days longer"        
"last part finally arriving today"
"First Cosmo mass production assmebly is now due to start at the beginning of next week"
"First mass production packaging of the Cosmo is to follow shortly after"
"hoping that the first backers to receive their Cosmos in the last week of September / first week of October"

So Assembly is starting next week, that is also last full week of September. And at same week "hoping that the first backers to receive their Cosmos in the last week of September"

So I think we can assume that first Cosmos can be received somewhere 2nd or 3rd week of October, or something like that?



And update contained few teasers also...

"
Our CTO, Dr Davide Guidi, will be travelling to China this weekend and visiting the assembly plant to oversee the first Cosmo mass production assembly and packaging.

We will be on the ground providing updates next week

"

So it says updates, not update... sounds that we have exciting next week containing few updates, sounds good...



"
Tomorrow we will be filming several How-To videos about the Cosmo that will act as introductory online video tutorials on how to use your Cosmo.

These will be posted on-line in a few weeks

"

in a few weeks there'll be also few videos where they are showing Cosmo in fully functional and playing around with it, sounds good...



And also regular "More news from us from next week" -signature at the end

"
More news from us from the assmebly line next week!

Oops... I guess mine will be in batch #2.
Maybe this is a good thing, so I can have fixes for early issues in mine?

Cosmo Communicator Campaign - Week 45 Update

Dear Cosmo backers!

Here is our latest update from our factory in China announcing exciting news...

The first mass produced Cosmo Communicators came off the production line yesterday!

Here are photos from the factory floor and the Cosmo production line , sent by our CTO:

The pictures say it all!

We are very pleased that we have reached this milestone.

The Cosmo release firmware has also been signed off this week and has been flashed into the produced Cosmo Communicators.

We are now going through a set of quality control checks on the Cosmos produced this week.

Following the quality checks, the first Cosmo will be packaged, sent to our warehouse in Hong Kong and then sent out to backers.

More from us soon.

Best regards,

Team Cosmo

Yeah, I could have been a bit more "positive" about the previous update, but other than the pouch, the "new" perks were actually just "recycled" from the Gemini...

But now update 27 is out, and THIS time it really is a "things are progressing more or less according to plan"-update. And I believe it was on time, AGAIN!:

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

Which should mean people should start to receive their Cosmo's soon???

Very good news... reminds me of the "first Geminis produced" update a year and half ago  And yes, I guess we can all be more positive now.
