The Question i have to ask: Do whe allready ordered the other parts for the first few hundred Pyrae ? I know the Coating Company is now closed until next week from the Post of EvilDragon,
But the Heatsinks got a Leadtime of 5 Weeks, so are whe allready in this 5 Weeks or will they start after the Coating? ..

And what are the Plans to make the Massproduktion "Corona Free" ? Although i dont think the Chance that you get the Virus from a New Pyra would be that big..

That might be something ED could check in a future video; wiping the painted case with 70% alchohol soltutions and checking whether the paint comes off.

The heat sinks should not block the cases being painted, so I suspect ED will send the cases to the company as soon as he gets them, providing the company is open. And I'd be very surprised (to answer the actual question you asked now I read it again) if they haven't been ordered before the first post was made. Practically the only way you find the lead time of an item is when you search for it on farnell or aliexpress or wherever you're actually buying your bits and pieces from, and then you're only a couple of clicks from actually ordering it, so I suspect he pushed the button and started the process.

For me, I canceled my preorder 3 years ago I think, maybe more. I was tired of waiting and now I am waiting for the Pyra Phone, but my main concerning with all this circus is that the Pyra was outdated one it was presented, 7? 8 years ago? So imagine now. The only possible way to turn the Pyra interesting again not for me, but for the general public is to release it, sell all the outdated devices and start working right now on a updated PCB. I am realistic and I know that no all PCBs are ok, but something with maybe 2-3 years frame should be the way to go.

Better consider Librem 5 or PinePhone.


I bailed out too, maybe will continue to hop in the forums once in a few months with the hope of any news for upgraded CPU board and updated external ports .
Meanwhile, I wish happy life to all "special" folks (they know who they are) while experiencing their reality check. :p&|a:

That has got to be the stupidest idea ever. Do they really think that printing extra money can solve anything? What are you going to do with all that money once everyone is loaded with money but no one has any goods to sell? No wonder that China does not want Dollars anymore. If this keeps going the Dollar won't be good for anything except playing Monopoly.

The same thing could happen like whe dit allready 100 Years ago: Inflation, everyone will be a Billionaire but you need a Push Cart to get the Money for a Bread to the Backery ..

I don’t think whe need to desinfect the Pyra, as it’s not that big danger that they gets infectious..

Also a reason to get the Pyra soon: whe this whole Money get Worthless, but the Pyra will keep its worth, as the Gouverment can’t Print Pyrae ^^


Whit best regards, Matthias

There's no need to disinfect my Pyra. I'm not afraid of a bit of fever. In fact fever makes for a great detoxing experience if one does fasting or intermittent fasting with fruit only. I'm actually looking forward to my next fever because of how greatly my health improves afterward. Too bad I do not get fever often anymore. I used to get it more often but back then I did not know how to benefit from it.

The Pyra has utility which helps it stay valuable. Especially for people who want it now because those people do not care a lot about hardware being outdated compared to modern standards. Though if you really want to store value in a safe medium then you should consider gold. It's retained it's value for thousands of years now. That's a good track record. Personally I also like Bitcoin but it's not as safe as gold.

Drink hot beverages and/or soup, put on warm cloths and yourself in the bed with lots of covers. Don't forget that you'll lose salt, thus need to take in extra.

If this happens some commercial services will stop existing and all the fancy devices depending on those services will become worthless.
Then some people will be happy open-source stuff exists and some devices can actually be repaired.

Everything faster than my Pandora isnt outdatet, whe dotnt need to compare the Pyra to a Modern Smartphone, or an 60.000 € Mac Pro..

Shure the Omap 5 is pretty slow and old, but im optimistic that this Pocket PC can make some impressive things..

Why? For one time, you should give a logical reasoning and don't throwing random objetive stuff as you always do.

Yes, but I like the way that HNS does his stuff, that's why I'm interested on it (that doesn't means that I am going to buy or not one, just let see what he does).

I just think its lying in the Ey of the Beholder (??), if the Pyra is Outdated: Personally, i was stuck whit a 2011 Thinkpad Notebook, fast enought for GTA 4, but pretty Outdated, even Itunes stutters a lot,
The GPD WIN is actually my fastest "PC" even if its just a Tiny Pocket Device..

I was using my Pandora for some Office Work back then, and even whit its Single 700 mhz, it just worked fine because the Software where optimazed, and there was just the OS on the NAND, not that much Data "Müll" like on a Windows PC..

So i think the Pyra will fit my Needs pretty good, even if it could be a bit slow for some tasks..

But what do i want it to doo??
Playing Ported and Optimaced Software, a bit "Word and Exel" Libre Office Writer / Libre Office Calc.., listen to Internet Radio maybe, Watching Youtube, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Disney +

Even whit this Omap 5, i dont think i will rann in too much issues..

I know its "überoptimistic", and i expect too many from this Tiny Pocket PC, and maybe i am a bit "blue Eyed" on the Project, but well, "ist halt so"

Well, most of the stuff you mentioned works fine on my Prototype.
Office stuff is fine, web browsing id fine.
I have no sound, no HDMI, no 3D acceleration, the old bad WIFI chip and have 1GHz as max clockspeed and a broken housing.
But except the Multi media stuff most things do work.
And as soon as I get a finalized mainboard and housing I don't doubt it can do the basic things you mentioned.

For me it might be too slow when it comes to programming, as it's really not fast at compiling compared to my Laptop.
