Nope. FB page says that the press release was done (?) but as usual everything is delayed again without any new date set...

They might release something, they might not, but's what is for certain is their PR is shambolic.

His webpage was updated with a link to his Facebook page (nice purpose of a website!) + a lot of legal numbers (who does that? It's like he absolutely wants to prove his company is legit which creates the opposite effect)
BUT the red flag comes at the end: a link to this EU site:

https://webgate.ec.europa.eu/odr/mai...me.show&lng=EN

Online Dispute Resolution
Quote:
The Online Dispute Resolution website is an official website managed by the European Commission dedicated to helping consumers and traders resolve their disputes out-of-court.
WTF? mentally preparing you to get ripped off?

Imagine any other company doing that on their landing page, would certainly scratch heads with a lot of people!

In Germany if you are doing business you have to link that site, so nothing odd with that. An the legal numbers are the legal information wich are all required for a business in Germany. If you do not provide them be prepared to be admonished and to unnecessarily pay a lot of money.

But interestingly there is a phone number whose title is purchase hotline. Would be interesting to see where this leads. Guess i might call it on monday

Normally the legal information aren't on the frontpage but hidden under the term "Impressum" but as his website is only one page, where else to put them.

Yep. Saying he's too busy for giving people actually info they want, and instead posting 3D versions of the old P5 logo nobody cares about. Very busy indeed.
But maybe he will reveal all today, as i noticed he has now 666 people who like his page

hello. I´ve direct contact with Salvador Fernandez.

I´ve asked some questions to him for our Spanish Youtube Amiga channel "Amigawave" and he has answered all our questions:

[ Show youtube player ]
from 2:15:25 until 3:26:00

A lot of interesting information (In Spanish, sorry) but maybe the more relevant points are:

- Prototype PCB's were given from Wolf Dietrich & Gerald Carda to him for free.
- Li Zhang, Christian Keller and Gerald Carda were the main programmers for all PCB's and Logic Units. Nobody more.
- He had found a solution for the weird 150pins A1200 connector.
- He are in contact with several suppliers for MC68060 and there´re no problem.
- Launch date: Dec.2016 / March 2017.
- Example price: Blizzard 1260 about 399€-599€ with new cplds.
- You´ll can buy directly to phase 5 or via resellers.

If anyone know spanish and want enumerate more interesting points, go on!

Greets.

This thread is conjecture. Quite likely something will arise from this phase 5 business - wait and see.

Thats a bit of a unfortunate thing, he was trying to sell off prototype boards at huge prices at German meetings. That seems a bit unfair if he received them for free as gifts IMHO.

Well If you asked him he'd probably just say he's raising funds for this P5 project any way he can
