I am with endso on this one. A lot of other devices have never been finished and thus also do not have those things. The Neo can hardly make the claim to be the only one

I think there may be a double negative hidden there somewhere

I actually almost edited right after I posted to add that the Librem 5 was perhaps another one, but I couldn't check that so I decided to keep it short.

I think the neo900 project should poll its backers now and ask "How many of the people who have pre-ordered would pay the remaining cost if the device was available to ship tomorrow?". I suspect the number would be very small. I pre-ordered, and I would not pay $100 more to have the device in my hand tomorrow. If, as I suspect, only a few of the persons who pre-ordered are willing to put up the rest of the cost for the device, then what sense does it make to continue the project?

well...
originally I spoke up in full support of the neo project whenever there were opposing arguments against it that could be countered.
Now ..years later..
with the advent of advancements in the field..
with alternative options hard and soft ware -wise...
with significantly lower end user cost...
and still no end in sight for the neo..
I just can't do it anymore..
I have no counter arguments left...
In fact ..now ...
I find increasingly there are arguments against a neo I just can't ignore anymore.

Whether the neo team or anyone else does a poll ..
I would imagine you are right Ken..
I think the numbers of polled preorder people who intend to follow through to the bitter end...will be small..very small..
In fact I suspect that many have moved on and won't even notice the poll...
Though I am curious ..
I do not think it anything but damaging for the neo project team morale to see those stats..

Some of my reasons may be or may not be shared by others..
I respect that ..
I may no longer agree.. but I respect their own decisions..

But me..
I just can't do this anymore.
Those who still are keen on the project , I do hope the best for..
For myself..
I have had enough, and await the refund process.
