New update coming before the end of the day tomorrow!
Looks like one more hiccup:
Quote
Hence, there was a pause in production early last week and no shipments of Cosmo perks since then.

Cosmo production restarted 3 days ago, on the 26th of October, using the re-supplied components.
But we're almost there
Seems like it is an advantage NOT to be in the very first production run        

Link to the update (for easy access for those not having the IGG page open in a tab constantly, like I have   ):

I'm pleased they stopped the run. There were a few fit and finish issues with early Geminis so glad to see the focus on quality this time round. A few weeks will be worth it to get a decent Cosmo.

While it was true for the X25, non-e-sim, keyboard challenged first-batch Gemini (I still like mine), since they've been checking quality quite a bit more thoroughly this time, I would presume they haven't been letting early Cosmos through with dodgy components, but rather found the rejection rate of some of them to be so high that, in order to not run out of stock, they either would have had to accept parts that weren't quite up to spec, or order more and wait for them. Apparently, they chose the latter, which I think was the right choice.

While a six-month project running six months late, cannot be okay by any metric, doing things right is far more important than trying to save a few days. When it ran late, they tried rushing the Gemini, at the expense of quality. At least, it seems they're not repeating THAT mistake again, but before even considering a third device, I think they need to get to the bottom of these delays. If nothing else, they may have to humbly accept that a project like this takes about one year, and plan any future crowdfunding accordingly.

Yes, I don't have a problem waiting, either, and can only hope that Daniel W is right, that the problem was intermittent and easy-to-spot and our Japanese friends didn't get screwed.

Mine (#623, UK) is still at ‘Contribution Placed’, so don't hold your breath.

Does anyone have idea what courier service they are going to use for shipping?

Finnish postal workers are going on strike starting next week and it'll probably last at least 2 weeks....so hope it's not via post at least.

is there a prize for the first person outside Japan to get their Cosmo?

I've been locked since Sunday - no cigar yet I'm afraid!

That's a relief that you are receiving Cosmo by UPS. In Finland regional postal office is starting strike, worst case scenario for strike is about two weeks. And after that it will took a while until flow of packet will normalized again.

Same here.  Order 7xx.  They seem to be moving right through the orders now.

I'm number 329, in the United States (New York, about 30 miles north of New York City).  My Cosmo (AT&T) is supposed to arrive on November 8 (tomorrow) via UPS

And mine is already showing up as being in Anchorage Alaska.  Tomorrow evening arrival might be a real possibility.
