When do you think your Iliad will arrive?

As you can see, i'm back to my old tricks...^^

We have a few members who have received an invite and are now waiting for their Iliad to arrive.

This Poll is targeted primarily at those few. However, even if you haven't ordered one, feel free to participate and post.

I voted for August or later, but then again, I haven't received an invitation yet, apparently because of the big water between here and Eindhoven... if only there were a convenient way to cross it...

I chose second week of July. Because i think they will have the devices in stock the first week of July (which means the latest OS update, that Henrycat is waiting for, will be applied. if not there will be more delay i guess). But i am crossing my fingers that i'll have it before July 7th. Would be a nice birthday present.

I'm guessing August or later. Small company, big hurdles. But if they get it basically right, that's better than just trying to meet an arbitrary date.

BTW, I love those creative avatars with the Iliads! We should probably have an e-ink avatar contest.

They better not delay again. Not for the developer orders. That will give them a really bad reputation, especially because they mentioned the bad software and made you acknowledge it. For the general release, it might be December before that.

And thanks for the praise of the avatars.

If they delay again there will be some very annoyed people who have shelled out money for it.

I can accept delays with products before they take my money, but they have taken it and given a timescale of 3-4 weeks...

That gives them until the 2nd week of July to start shipping.

Incidentally, because I have been mentioning the iLiad at work so much, there is a good chance that others will buy it. (specifically, comments like "Gee that looks good. If it's half as good when your arrives I'll buy one" from various sales and techies)

--edit what edit? ;-) (Thanks Commander)

Riocaz - are you saying that they have already charged your credit card, before shipping the product?

That is fairly unusual for preorders, in my experience (e.g. preorder of MacBook Pro). If they have, I agree - it ties them into the promised time frame even more.

If I havn't then I have spent 500 quid I hadn't thought I had.

Though it was on a debit card, and I havn't had my statement to be 100% sure.

Hold on while I call my bank.

-- Got off phone to the bank:

having checked.

470 came out of my account on the 22nd of June. Paid to Irex Technologies.

My order was a week earlier than that. I was worried for a bit, as they couldn't find it. I knew I was 300 quid overdrawn so it would have been slightly worrying.
