with chips you need custom shield to fit pcb layout -> extra cost.
Nope, for now we're looking into cinterion module (family), see http://talk.maemo.org/showthread.php...93#post1385493 We're already designing a first "dummy" that fits into the N900 case and has a PHS8 (PLS8 not yet available), so we can test the module with our PCB footprint and the N900 antenna. (Of course the PCB serves other purposes too, like general size and mechanical verification and checking the switches we found. Maybe we'll test GPS too, already). We hope to showcase that dummy at Nov 30 OHSW

if you count the excess money raised (36230-25000)/700=~16, youre getting fairly close to the projected 200 {16+151==167}.
{edit: 168 was a typo, not an arithmetic error. shut up dont judge me}

This calculation is incorrect. When we had 100 donors each donating 500EUR then we had 50k obviously, but we need to ship 100 devices for that money plus 100*difference-to-sales-price. So zero "excess money" available anywhere in all this.
This calculation holds no info at all. we need to build - at least - 200 devices to make fab operate in (semi) economic range.
It would differ if we had a donated value of >700EUR per donor, then we actually could talk about "excess money".

right, this was nonsense from not having slept last night.

the 'excess' i was thinking about {and still not a meaningful concept} would be better calculated as 36,230-151*100=>21130-25000=> -3870.
if that number were positive and large, then you could divide it into fake preorders, assuming everything else goes perfectly.

OK, big news for some few of you: we evaluated our options and decided that probably we eventually can publish the full EAGLE project files. ;-)

cheers

What does that mean? EAGLE files?

We ordered PCB for first "dummy" ('only' phone/data function and GPS, mechanic verification) today



We hope to demonstrate this frist real hardware on OSHW
30. Nov. - 1. Dec 2013: www.ohsw.org - Open Hard- and Software Workshop in Garching (Munich), Germany.
Not much time till then, we however hope we make it in time. :-)

cheers
