    @Carl you said early members would be priorizised. You give away many invites to people who came to the pop up events and a lot of by the contest and OP2 too. Have all of them get the invites or will they geht them also with a delay? If they already got them..its unfair :) many couldnt come to the events who are here since you openend the forum.
    I hope you Start rolling out soon :rolleyes:

    Why launch if you ain't ready? and now all these excuses. you had a long time to make it right and now after all the hype you put us back in the waiting seat. hmm

    People will speculate under all circumstances; because they can.
    As someone who was going to be in the initial list for roll-outs, ive been expecting it really soon. What this post does is to make waiting for it okay.

    A fine example of a high profile marketing flop. If you over HYPE thats the risk you take I guess.

    Thanks for the information, at least there won't be any new threads regarding invites for few days. But hope that issues get fixed soon.

    "We released beta hardware and the reviews are calling it crap so we'll delay the product even more."

    ...um, no, it's summary of what happened last year.

    @Carl, I think it's amazing what you and your company has done. I talked with you at length at the NYC pop up event and I appreciate the fact that you took the time to talk with us all. It's obvious you are passionate about this space. But I will say, this statement about logistics does worry me. Coming from someone that has said that they see a world with 3 major phone makers, Apple, Samsung, and OnePlus, isn't logistics and the ability to deliver when promised something that you should have nailed down? The question posed to you was simply about anticipated ship dates and current delays. Being the 2nd phone you guys are launching and the amount of promises you and your company have made, these types of things are something to be expected from a Kickstarter. Apple and Samsung are experts in consumer electronics, marketing, and logistics. Your products and viral marketing approach are not going to get you anywhere near the top three if you keep disappointing everyone because you can't deliver on logistics. Apple and Samsung are extremely precise on logistics.

    Disappointing, but sadly not a great surprise. I'd rather get a fully functional device, I suppose.

    what this post does is make me worry that the first batch of phones could have many issues (like the OPO)

    No, but some kind of a discount, or one extra accessorie for free, would be nice, to have, for the delay.
