So we shall add even more festure requests to the chenPhone.then we have to wait even more. Why not build a qwerty device in its most basic form and see if that works. Even that takes years. Jolla tried lots of stupid things and wasted our money on stupid things instead of building a tablet and ship it to its backers.

If chen manage to build one it much easier to build version 2 with extras. Both when it comes to finance and technical issues.

You are absolutely right, we just can't ask all the features that come to our mind. My previous posts months ago in this topic show how much I agree. I even believe I stepped against the Blackberry keyboard/touchpad in the past because it seemed just way too complicated to achieve. However I didn't think about optical trackpads, yet they look much simpler, easier to integrate, cheaper, and videos of Blackberry trackpads in use are very convincing. In the end, Chen will decide anyway and he already has is prototype in mind, we are not doing any harm as long as we are not falling into science fiction requests.

To be honest, I am not setting my hopes too high for this, but since there are real use cases and it's less fantasy/gadget than a solar panel or a subwoofer, it doesn't seem so unreasonable to discuss the concept. It would be a competitive advantage against the Gemini and many other phones, a solar charger or can opener extension, would not.

It seems the Ali Baba's cave for mobile optical trackpads is here: http://www.crucialtec.com/eng/busine...s_otp.php#tab3

Its performance has been proved by global customers such as Samsung, BlackBerry, HTC etc and shipped over 200millions.

y'know what you get when you ask all the features that come to mind?
that has already happened somewhere else...
answer : an unfinished neo
or a finished Homer mobile

Likewise! The pleasure is mine!

I wonder when/if Chen will announce the specs next year or this year. Or two years from now. Whats your take on that?

Possibly. But this project is top secret and the good part is that chen Manged to design and deliver the MotoQwerty so he has a trackRecord that beats the neo 1 vs 0. But OFC, a device is more Complex. We will just have wait and see.

He also have absoluty no obligation and can walk away if he finds out there is trouble on the horizon. The neos both relesed spec and collected money. Big difference. I think that is a key to success.

Hmmm... So no subwoofer? (Bummer)

Never heard of a subfoower before..
Are they substandard foower dancers...?
can't be ...why would Chen fit substandard dancers inside the device?
Must be "sub" as in "miniaturized" ..foower dancers...
that makes more sense ...
easier to fit a bunch of foower dancers if you shrink them down...or design them in the lab...
the ethical ramifications either way...
as well as cross border visas in each deice for all those "subfoowers"...
would be a legal and bureaucratic nightmare...
I can't see it happening...

Personally I can do without "subfoowers" ...
never cared for the dancing....

subfoowers may not be feasible with today's tech ...
but it certainly sounds cooler...

Love the username too...
The imagery it evokes...



actually...
you don't have an avatar catbus...
the preceding pic would be purrfect..."beep-beep!"
