    Im from the US, I’m trying to pre-order and they sent an email with a confirmation #, but no payment of $30 was required. Did anyone else get this notification? Are they sold out???

    stevenhanagan,

    there is no pre-payment needed currently, if you read closely, as a bonus for pre-ordering you get some acessories worth 30$ on top of the device. Your payment information will be requested as soon as the shipments can be prepared.
    You can check the status of your pre-order here: My Account/pre-orders. They are not sold out.

    As said in the other thread, you don’t need to pay anything yet and the $30 is the value of free case and earphone given extra for everyone who pre-ordered. Payment info will be requested only when shipments are about to start.

    What’s probably going on is that they’re gauging interest for the device before ramping up production, but in such a way that people who followed the Livermorium debacle don’t feel like they’re throwing money down a drain. I quite applaud this approach.

    Yeah, it’s a great idea. I’ve never pre-ordered anything before this in my life because trust issues, but the way fxtec handles it convinced me.

    I’m with you guys on this, a very nice and decent approach to test the interest to know the scale of the production needed, and then not requesting the money before everything are ready for ordering.

    I hope it does not mean that they only produce the pre-ordered numbers, as I’m sure that when we flash the devices in real life, we will make more people interested, and I for one could consider buying one or two as a spare also, but would like to have actually had the device in my hands before ordering additional specimens. And others might feel the same way.

    The pre-order process is spot on. I pre-ordered the other day because they didn’t ask anythin upfront. I wouldn’t of otherwise as they are a new company.
