We soonish will change the http://neo900.org/#donate display to show count of "preorders" which is the really relevant value in this phase of the project funding campaign.
This is a "131" now (including some doublettes from those who want to concatenate multiple donations into one rebated device purchase, so the actual number is a few clicks lower).

I still have hopes that we'll reach my inofficial private deadline of 200 "preorders" on 2014-01-01. The calculations of device price and feasibility been based on this number of devices preordered.

Here again the phases as we see them:

Phase1: collect 5000EUR__[check]
Phase2: collect 15000EUR_[check]
Phase3: collect 25000EUR_[check]
Phase4: 200 preorders (100+EUR donations)
Phase5: 1000 preorders (100+EUR donations)
Phase6: 1000 preorders on a regular schedule (like: every 8 weeks)

We need to start the promised public discussion what you want us to do with the "excess" donations amount.
if we get more budget, we discuss with the community to build more prototypes or add features etc. or use it to make series production cheaper.
My idea for now is to use those funds to preorder hard-to-source components so we don't need to buy them expensive in a hurry and then wait 12 weeks for them to arrive, once we want to start with mass production. Particularly I ponder about the N900 spare parts which get shipped from Asia and can take quite a while to arrive. What do you think?

Sweden chipping in a donation / preorder here!

I would personally Love to se dual sim capability, or I would have to go back to carrying 3 phones again :/
I know this would probably not happen, but it's a nice dream!

Keep up the great work, I really miss my n900!

Thanks for donation! :-)
We had dual-SIM on our list of features already, but we removed it when it became obvious that Option801 is no option (SCNR). We'll see what we can do, I'm also considering dual-SIM a killer feature. Maybe we should actually add it again to the feature list and simply plan for a solution independent from modem supporting it.
However no single-modem solution with external circuitry to get 2 SIMs attached can provide Dual-SIM-Dual-Standby (DSDS) functionality. It's always just a "Dual-SIM shift" convenience thing to simplify "swapping the SIM". For DSDS you need support from modem, and so far we only know of Option801 to offer that.

cheers

Please do so (begging, begging, begging)

Clear.
Or just -even more simple- keep mini SIM tray (reminder: so using adapter os possible).

of course real Dual SIM would be killer!

Courtesy of our awesome frontman Sebastian (Dos1) we have a significantly improved progress bar already. Check it out!
[edit] we have a completely redesigned donation page section now, and I think it looks awesome and transports exactly what we need it to transport.

sorry for what ??you guys are already communicating beyond levels seen before btw bluetoot ? Seriously Yep i get it that can be set to always lisening but dont you think range is beyond acceptable levels 200mts without interference max and it would be useless when powerd off . I was thinking of some hf lisening module or using the permitted am fm range of frequencies for the message .That way it can be tracked activated if light years away actually it should be direct as soon as you put the battery it comes to life

From an egoistic point of view, I see best-feature-set-possible "board-only" Neo900 (where you cannibalize own N900's parts) as a much more important goal, than "basic" Neo900 sold inside aftermarket N900 cases, already.

So, from my subjective POV, using exceed money for more prototypes/cheaper series production later/whatever is more profitable than sourcing N900 parts (unless we're talking specifically about parts that *need* to be integrated on board, like screen connector port).

I wonder, what others think, especially, people that pre-ordered already (unlike me, sadly, so their opinion is more important IMO)?
