    I abandoned all this drama long time ago, but I want to know, did they cheated someone's money or they still didn't have the chance to do it?

    They set up their own preorder system, so they are collecting money on their homepage.

    PGS have made a project update, too long to fully quote, and it's worth a read. But here are some highlights

    They claim the XPphone guys who were building the PGS, scammed them. So in search of another manufacturer, all but one told them it was not possible and rejected them. But in the end they supposedly found a group who will do it - Haivomobile

    They claim they have raised $1.6 Million so far in pre-orders. They also say that if anyone wants a refund , they will honor it.

    They also listed a number of specs that will change

    Anyway, here is the bit about XPphone

    "XpPhone developers failure

    Entering the ranks of PGS each of us realized that the development of the most advanced portable device in the world is an extremely difficult task even for teams with vast experience and an almost infinite resource base, not to mention us. But we did not expect that it would be so difficult to push the industry forward.

    After a long search for a developer team we chose guys who had created XpPhone and XpPhone 2 - and that was a big mistake. Those people turned out to be scammers. They kept giving us false reports for several months in a row, creating the illusion of active work on our product, but the truth revealed: they tried to create their own product using our resources. Fortunately, they had lack of professionalism, and the common sense helped us suspect and investigate the case. A long court trial against the scammers is going to take place, but we didn't get upset, and full of determination we continued to search for skilled contract developers

    So, after the SmachZ and the PGS, is it now my time to reveal that the Pyra is just a scam?

    I was planning to do a newspost tonight, so that might be a good opportunity :D

    Hum, I just realized something...
    1. Put my wip piboy in a printed enclosure.
    2. Create a kickstarter.
    3. Gather lots of money.
    4. Disappear.
    5. Profit!
    Now, that is a nice plan!

    Did you hear about the Iphone8 being above 1000 dollar? The Pyra will be able to do all that the Iphone can (and cant)... because it is better, shouldnt it be pricier?

    haha... nice. Maybe will map it to the Pyra usr1 button!

    XpPhone guys scamming them seems very unlikely and fake to me (like most of the things about PGS anyways). People at XpPhone at least had a working product, and have gone to the way of making a third coming of XpPhone. Seems like some companies just have problems with the number 3...

    Edit : Seems like they're making a fourth one too.

    Pretty sure you can fit a GTX 1080Ti, i9 7900X and 32 GB DDR5 RAM in that tiny case and find a magical cooling solution after 3 days of non-stop office work! I wonder why PGS guys weren't up to these specifications...
