Welcome back to another Pokit Pro weekly update! Here’s the latest news from the past week.
Following on from the delay mentioned in last week’s update, our manufacturers are asking for special permission to transfer the Pokit Pro units that they have ready for the next batch of orders to our fulfilment centre. We are hoping that these will leave the manufacturers by early next week. These units will mean that all Kickstarter orders up to backer 2250 will have their orders fulfilled. These orders will be fulfilled shortly after the units reach our fulfilment centre.
For Kickstarter backers, once your order is fulfilled, you will receive a tracking number via an email from CrowdOx.
Thank you all for your continued patience as we roll out Pokit Pro!
These "weekly" updates has become more and more like a joke... Firstly because they come whenever pleases you and by no means regularily, which is honestly kind of disrespectful to the people who bought your product expecting delivery 2 years ago.
Secondly, these updates contain zero useful information. How about you share some actual updates? How many units have you produced? How has the delay affected the delivery schedule? Show some aspects of the production, to encourage your backers to stay and wait instead of asking for a refund, because you are unable to keep your promises over and over again.
I'm a backer in the first 1000, but I added another Pocket Pro later when doing the survey, so now I'm at the end of the list of the last list of lists or something.
1) that wasn't clear when I added that I would be sent to the end
2) when/where am I now on the list if at all, after all the backers?
Hi Frederik Bjørholm, thanks for the feedback. We typically aim to have the weekly updates published on Wednesday afternoons or Thursday mornings Sydney time. We will look into adding additional production information such as what you have suggested here.
Hi Jason Mads, if your Kickstarter backer number is under 2250, your order will be fulfilled in the next batch of orders to be fulfilled. We have received word from our manufacturers that the lockdown has tightened and they are unsure when they are able to return to work. Here are some excerpts from a recent ABC news article:
"Two years on, it's now sending tens of millions of people into lockdown in the entire northeastern province of Jilin, where 24 million people live, and the southern cities of Shenzhen and Dongguan, with 17.5 million and 10 million, respectively.
The lockdown and outbreaks threaten manufacturing and tech production in Shenzhen, known as China’s Silicon Valley.
“It seems the lockdowns will be shorter this time with more tracking, which means a short disruption of work and production," Tang said. "If it ends up lasting for weeks it’s another issue, including inflation risks.”
We will keep you updated on when production is able to resume in our weekly updates. Thank you for your ongoing patience as we await the resumption of production.
Ooh, getting excited. I'm probably in the next batch!
