German Blog UpdateApril 30, 2009
The GP32x forums are down and we haven’t had any Panda updates in a good while, unrest is brewing. Fortunetly, ED has updated the german blog, while we don’t have a proper translation (if anybody would be kind enough to make one for us, that would be great). We’ve got a quick “free” translation. New translations, thanks polossatik, LastPucho and Lafazar .
“So now I have ask around and I have more info. The TV-out cable is almost finished. The batteries are going into mass production in a short while (running so far with no problems).
The transparent case was sent from the factory to Faith, but it arrived too late (After Faith left for South Korea). That’s why it’s not with Michael (Faith has to mail it on to Michael) . Michael opened an UPS account because the last time they were not able to send him directly the parts because he didn’t have one (UPS account).
He needs some time to work on the TV out cable then work on the small parts – foam for the speakers, microphone, etc. and work together with some coders on the last bits of the drivers (partly pay by us) so in the end phase can completely dedicate to the Pandora. So when the boards are finished, they will be almost production ready and the internals can be tested.
So, it looks like we’ve got another logistics problem and it won’t be resolved until monday. At least, that’s what I’m making out from this poor translation.
We’ve definetly got a logistics problem, that won’t be solved until monday. It seems MWeston is working on various other components while we wait. Hopefully, he’s been looking for decent components, similar to how he’s handled the TV-out (gold plated, 10ft). Here’s hoping for gold-coated loudspeaker foam!
Thanks for the tip LastPucho.
