    Really good suggestion. I don’t understand why they don’t have this, considering how open they are about “based on demand we will provide other layouts”, but there is no way for us to create that demand right now.

    Pre-Ordering with a layout selection will most likely not work on a legal scale.
    Your pre-order would not be valid if the layout does not match. No matter how clear it was stated.

    But a poll would be a good thing for sure.

    Why wouldn’t it be illegal? Considering you don’t have to pay anything before the actual final shipping, and you can cancel your pre-order at any time before that shipping, they could easily then send out a message that “We are sorry to inform that the order amount for your keyboard layout of choice did not meet the minimum demands and won’t be produced as of this time. Please inform us if you want to cancel your pre-order or if you accept receiving the phone with a standard, US QWERTY layout instead”

    Or something like that. And when you do the pre-order they could easily add that paragraph about orders having to meet a certain minimum demand etc. :D

    But yes, a poll would be the best. I am kind disapointed that they haven’t done that already, whilst constantly acknowledging that there are interest in other layouts.

    IF they would do it like that, that would most certainly work (not a lawyer). But this would mean, that everybody who does not get the wished layout has to explicitly accept the new pre-order. A lot of people surely would. This means that the pre-order count is a worse indicator for how many device they have to produce, which is all that matters about this pre-order button.

    No they dont have to accept the new one. The paragraph example I wrotr said they can either choose to cancel or accept the US type.

    But yeah, first step now would be for fxtec to properly investigate the actual interest in different layouts.

    The reason for why it would be good if they added the choice in the pre order section, is because not all who pre orders can be bothered to come to the forums. I have been following this phone for a while, but it took me until 1.5 weeks ago to actually register and jump onto the forum.
