That’s fine @admin, but I’d just like an idea of when I could expect it. What’s the current shipping estimate? When I hear “few”, I think “3”, should I expect it in the next month or so? Or maybe 3 months from now, in June? I don’t need specifics if you don’t have them, I just want a rough estimate.
Unfortunately we had some supplier quality control problems last year. Two of the factories were unable to meet IBM’s exacting 1980s tolerances and I had to cancel their contract (as noted on the project updates page). The new factories are working on the remaining parts (keys, inner assembly plates, springs, and compact cases) and should be finished in the coming months. The other parts are completed and waiting in boxes at the factory to be assembled! I will not sacrifice quality and ship a substandard product to save a few months of wait time – everyone will get a keyboard that meets my quality standards!
