"Buy neo900???"

Better understand the definition of the word "Buy" first.

NONE of those examples come CLOSE to the situation of the neo900.
Let alone "Buying" one.

To "Buy" a neo900 would mean that it was or is being physically "ACQUIRED" for a form of payment.


The closest the neo900 comes to "buying" ...
is ....
"pre-buying"
In anticipation "OF" the COMPLETION of the future product.

And in the time line of "pre-buying" it is sadly lacking.

YEARS ago I "pre-bought" half a neo900 ....

So where is the neo900?

Take a good hard look my friend at this LAST updated timeline....from 1year and 3 days old.



So where is this magical neo900 that I can "buy"?

After ALMOST 4 years now...since it started... of support and belief in the project...even my patience is done.

I am glad I didn't "prebuy" the total cost!

When / If ever the project is declared dead...there is a good chance the "pre- order / investment in devel"
that all have put in ...that everyone has been "gaining interest on" ...will end up being a zero...in return ...or possible close to it..."sans the cost for work and parts on the project..." of course... and I understand time needs to be paid for ...others may not..
yet again...who knows?
Perhaps IF it fails there will be reasonable refunds..
Perhaps IF it succeeds there will FINALLY be a product to "Buy".

But...

Buy neo900???

Sorry man...it is a little late in the day to be a "booster" for the neo.

It's a little late to be handing out bowls of crap and trying to convince it is tasty chocolate pudding.
