    you would now know
    exactly-How many to make for the first batch(pre-order+)
    exactly-How much cash you will have coming in.
    Oh and while I'm here, where is all the secret tech?

    There better be more than 100k devices available.
    Otherwise the forum will be pure hell.
    Second though, probably not that many, too much hype and can't meet its demand.

    Well, the referral system becomes their extension of the advertisment. This really came back to bite their own behind because they wanted to save money on advertisement. I understand, but @deuse is right. You guys would have known the scope of the production is required. Pre-order would have become a small startup fund for faster manufacturing decisions

    i dont understand why people are complaining about phone smashing. if you are not interested then don't sign up just because you don't want to smash your phone doesn't mean others want the same. like carl said almost 100,000 submitted application for smashing their phone and say 2/3 of them fake or duplicate but still plenty of people. so seat back and relax soon you will be able to buy the phone. hope i get picked can't wait to distroy my galaxy s4 :D:D

    Excuse me Carl! How is that possible? 100.000 wants to smash their nearly new phones for a one? We have 25.000 forum members and many do not like the smash action....(me too).

    I am patient. Hope I can purchase a one soon.

    PS: Nice Phone!

    Because it's irresponsible and cheesy. Companies pride them self on how green and environmentally responsible they are now days, and this company is working everyone up into wanting to destroy shit and be wasteful, not to mention potentially hazardous if someone has a battery burst or whatever. It's just pure wasteful when the phones could be donated to charitable organizations. It's seriously cheesy too. Would a reputable company like Apple, Samsung, Sony, etc ever do a stupid contest like this? This just shows how amateur their marketing strategy is. When I see this contest for what it is, I actually facepalm, because it takes an idea and company that I had a lot of hope for, and now makes me wonder if this company is competent for the long haul.

    A good market analysis prior could fix some problems in the beginning and many users would not be so applied

    Congrats!! :)
    And thank you for the update.
    I'd be glad, if more details could be announced in the near future.
    I'll be waiting patiently.

    Waiting for some more news before deciding but generally a bit disappointed about the whole campaign. Maybe you should've waited with the launch until you were closer to production. Just a thought.

    I'm quite confident it could still be averted if they act fast and start making this ship look a little more polished. But if they keep taking the non-transparent-cheesy-"it works in China"-route, they are just going to alienate them self from what the Western world expects.
