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.
Yes, Gemini update #45, from Thursday, February 1, 2018, said "final assembly of Gemini started today". The [a href=\'index.php?showtopic=34795\']earliest post[/a] on OESF from a user who received their Gemini, says it arrived on Thursday, March 1, 2018. Presuming Cosmo update #27 was written late on Thursday, September 26, 2019, in London, its "final assembly of Cosmo started yesterday" could refer to Wednesday, September 25. Four weeks after that would be Wednesday October 23. Last time, it took a few more weeks before all early backers had received their Geminis. Should that pattern repeat, some early backers may have to wait until November. However, as Planet Computers has previously stated that deliveries to Europe will be shipped via the UK, it remains to be seen whether the end of October might somehow influence their priorities.

Higher res versions of some of the photos from the chinese factory have been published on the Gemini PDA Telegram channel by one of its admins, I'm attaching them here with permission. Also, a chinese-speaking user has found an interesting info from the first photo: at the time the shoot was taken they were producing 300 units per hour. Planet has stated that 4000 units will be produced in the first batch, so they might well have finished manufacturing them by now. Just in time too, since a national holiday will start tomorrow in China (National Day: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Day_...ublic_of_China), which will last for 3 days, but most people will probably stay at home on next Friday too for the weekend.

Not sure where to put it but found a review of the device from 2 oct.

https://bigtechquestion.com/2019/10/03/revi...nicator-review/


Quote from website:

The first batch of devices literally rolled off the production floor in China last week, and naturally the Indiegogo backers will get theirs first. And due to a whole week of Chinese holidays, nothing is happening this week so it will be next week before Planet starts shipping those first units.

That means you'll probably be waiting until late November before yours will arrive, if you ordered now. I hope to get a review unit within a couple of weeks, and will update this review then.


(i "ordered" the Cosmo via Planet itself some months back  (because i had no credit card, but it is added to their "internal" list as igg perk)
So hopefully we will get some good news after the Chinese holidays!

Thanks for this review link, particularly like the sound of 'added functionality' for the USB-C ports and the 'support for an external hub with simultaneous charging'! Can't wait to have a Cosmo in my hand!

Out now...

...we miscalculated the extent to which the China National Day celebration would disrupt our plans. This year, there was a 7 day celebration period. As well as he production pause this past week, there was no possibility of shipping any units out of the factory during last week, as the freight services were also halted. Our CTO and our staff on the ground in China tried their hardest, but it was really impossible. Production and packaging will now restart in a couple of days and we now hope to have the first Cosmo perks reaching our warehouse in Hong Kong and be shipped out to backers during this week.

So they are shipping right now?!

I wonder how many they can ship every day? How many working days left until #3999 (yes I am a very late backer)?

I hope some of my questions will be answered later today in the promised update...

So they are shipping right now?!

Mostly it's the Japanese model that is shipping right now, according to the update. (They have a different keyboard.)

After the Japanese batch, next up is the EU/UK and standard US batch, so they should arrive in the EU in 1-2 weeks.

The final batch are the US Verizon model.

(This is down to these three versions having different motherboards.)
