No. NO! I hate December 6th! So I'll guess optimisticly it's gonna be December 5th 2016 - my hope is that it'll be released before Christmas 2016, so anything before December 23rd 2016 would already make me happy. As long as it isn't December 6th.December 6th 2016
As much as I'd like to have a Pyra in my hands this year, as those projects go I wouldn't be suprised if it takes another year to get all the kinks ironed out, have feedback from devs and prototype users, integrate those, stumble over some last minute changes and opportunities, and get the production running smoothly.
So my guess is June 1, 2017. Incidentally the final day of my current day job project, and the point in time after which I'll have more time to spare
I cant help but think more products in the space is a good thing. Clamshell UMPCs have been a dying thing, let alone gaming clamshell UMPCs which was restricted to one. Interest has waned massively.
I don't know, maybe I'm envisaging a scenario where one restaraunt in an alley fails, but multiple restaraunts in the alley become a success as the alley gets known as a spot to eat and attracts a large crowd. The analogy being one product may not cut it as something to be noticed, but more than one migh spark intrerest again.
Ha, December 6th is my birthday! That's why I picked it.No. NO! I hate December 6th! So I'll guess optimisticly it's gonna be December 5th 2016 - my hope is that it'll be released before Christmas 2016, so anything before December 23rd 2016 would already make me happy. As long as it isn't December 6th.
My official date for the non-existing raffle: December 5th 2016.
Comparing the state the pyra is in compared to the pandora I would say this year is probable for the first units.
(in other words when the pandora was at this stage it hit the market in a few months)
When Craigix was running the show, or when ED was building them in Germany? When Craig built the first units, it was a very slow drip feed of units out, and I'm sure we can't use that as an indication of when hundreds are likely to be sent out. When ED built the units there was no plan to modify the case or the PCB, while there is still refactoring (of the case at least) to be done here.
But yeah, I'd hope also for some time later this year. I can't immediately see what could happen to stop that.
Why would the first batch be 200? If the preorder queue freezes where it is up until the release date (as unlikely as that is), the first batch will be 500 units, with the next batch following on shortly. If we can build up to 950 preorders (just another 158 preorders) then the first batch will be 1000 units.Dec 3rd 2016 for first 200 batch. 800 preorders to be fulfilled by April 2017.
