I unfortunately bailed out last year... I was naively expecting that it would have been ready a year ago.

Will be very interesting to see if it finally arrives!

Only clicked on this cos I thought the title was accurate and funny Was it on purpose?

It's nice that they don't keep us in the dark, though. Haven't seen that chart before though, has it been online long?

Pandora looks awesome, I hope they use matt finish on the screen, the shiney screens pick up dust and scratch so easily, looking at the videos on the website it seems to be a matt finish but I'm not 100% sure.
How much is the Pandora gonna be?

According to http://www.gp32x.com/board/index.php...an-email-back/ it's going to be 266.20 UKP (VAT included) due to the changing exchange rates.

Aye, it was a lot cheaper when it started off , and it was cutting edge last year. A year is a hell of a long time in mobile devices, but it's still pretty good value for money IMHO.

If they'd been a little more realistic on delivery times in the first place, I'd still be happily waiting.

I still hope it's a resounding success, and I'll be in the second or third batch!

I have some friends over at Armchair Arcade that pre-ordered them a long, long time ago. Good to hear some progress is being made; I think a few had concluded it was vaporware.

Great that its finally out, as someone already said 1 year is a long time.

At the time when the Pandora project started they compared it with Netbooks, now the Netbook phenomenom seems dead, instead people want Windows and big harddrives in their netbooks instead of SSD and mini-Linux.

So the Pandora needs to stand on its own feet IMHO.

From a scale of interest from 1 to 5, I am at about 2.4
