Craig has posted new pictures of the transparent case and the final battery on the official blog.

As usual, click on the images for larger versions…




  1. First to post 🙂

    Some progress is good.

    Hopefully it’s the last mile now.

  2. Looks great! I am excited about them..

  3. oooooh….

  4. Well those are nice and all, but as usual I’m left wanting more. Maybe that’s very ungrateful of me.

  5. nice!

    no offense but isn’t craigs thumb nail a little bit long? 😛

  6. The transparent case pic is from MWeston’s album, does that mean that he has the case now?


  7. That’s not my thumb!

  8. As totally pessimistic and fed up with the pandora as I am right now, those pictures got me really excited
    you’re my dream, mr. short, dark, and matte

  9. Not sure about that battery.

    Those contacts aren’t very well protected. If they’re copper, they may scratch away easily if you’ve got a spare one that’s not in the Pandora.

    Otherwise, cool!

  10. the second symbol in from the right looks like a straight up swastika

  11. It’s the standard recycling symbol in many parts of the world.

  12. Doesn’t the one on the left look larger? Or is it just two different pictures of the same casing?

  13. Spare batteries come in a special cover to protect them.

    The idea is you swap batteries over and put the one not being used in the protective case.

  14. I want to see an assembled unit, damnit! 🙂

    This is getting me excited.

  15. Just sent in my info for a preorder today. I’m all giddy. 🙂

  16. Yes, MWeston got the case, as he recently said himself:

    “The cases finally arrived a few minutes ago: http://i198.photobucket.com/albums/aa99 … C01163.jpg

    The keymats, however, will probably not be here until next week. They’re on their way to Craig this time. This gives me time to put things together but unfortunately nothing special coming from me this week. Craig will be able to swap out the proto keymat for a real one on his unit this week so that will be nice. Look for demos to come from him soon (TM).”

  17. I want my pandora now dam it

  18. during all of this i have suffered frustration at the way things have moved, some of the lack of info, some of the info given out, some of the info not given out amongst others and i assume this is the same for others here.
    However every time there is a reasonable update i feel invigorated again and gloss over the frustrations.

    i therefore name this handheld the Peggle of the hardware world!

    Damn Peggle, damn Pandora… ohhh Ode to Joy

  19. Giggity giggity goo Warner?

  20. sexy 🙂

  21. No worries about the battery connectors. My HP Jornada 568 has a Li-Ion battery with the same flat copper connector and it’s been about 8 years since I bought that and the connectors are just a shiny today as when I bought it (same with the spare lower capacity battery that has rarely ever been in the device and I never kept the battery cover on)
    The batteries have outlived the device!

  22. Great news but what about the boards? Any info on how well testing is going for them if it is already started?

  23. I wasn’t worried so much about the connectors. Just the way that they’re not sucken in or protected at all.
