Google doesn't find anything interesting about them except their website and this forum.. Not press release anywhere...

Their website has been registered since March 2017 so it is not coming from nowhere, but not a single name of who is behind it on their website, only they come from Finland.

They present a Quad iMx6 as their CPU. So if they succeed to deliver something, it will probably be quite behind Purism (with its middle range iMx8, consuming less and with up to date peripherals and GPU).

My feeling? Too early to get behind this.

Obviously:
Availability: To be announced

By the way, I missed the twitter feed the first time : https://twitter.com/necunoscom
And found this pdf document on their website : https://necunos.com/rcm.pdf with this name on it :
Aleksi Suomalainen, CTO, Necunos Ltd
We know someone in this community with this name, mostly by is nickname locusf.
There is an old tweet containing the name of necunoscom that he retweeted so could really be from him.

That would also explain why the people who retweeted the 2 tweets from the account of necuno are from the Nemo community.

At least we have now an idea of who is being it, so may not be as big a trap as other were. We'll see what they propose in the future, but it looks like with a CPU that old that they only target people like on this forum, which so far lead to projects in small quantity with small team, so high price regarding performances and big delays. But would be glad to be wrong !

@locusf \o/ cool.

I had very good but short communication with him when he fiddled around with SailPi back in 2015.

More than mildly interesting i must say. Thanks for sharing Niel!
Did he tell you or did you find the info by chance?

I am going to shoot him a notice concerning this thread. He might be interested to share some definite info before speculation goes into certain unnecessary directions...

Blame this forum for that.

So yeah... I can read and know that it's to be released "soon". But my statements are in regards to how that usually equates to "concept not ready for primetime yet".

Here's to hoping I'm very wrong.
