  1. Already mentioned and linked one page earlier ;)
  2. Yeah, would be awesome if a surprise mail with the tracking details came in ;) But I rather don't count on it and prepare myself for a few more weeks of waiting time.
  3. I am not sure which message you are referring to. But on Twitter F(x)tec answered to people, that asked about the availability of the phone, that they can order, but that it needs 4-6 weeks until it arrives because they will fulfill their preorders first. Also the latest reported payment date of somebody who recieved their stock assigned message (if you don't count in the IGG coupon orders) was around 20th of August from 1(!) person in the Netherlands if I remember correctly. So as most of us probably paid right after recieving their payment mail in the time from 31st of July to 1st of Au
  4. Where do you see normal orders delivered?
  5. Isn't it just for nothing if you refund now? I do get the frustration about the delays and lack of communication, but I don't really understand why you would drop out after such a long time. Does one or two months more really still matter at that point? Especially as they are shipping now. Slowly, but they are.
  6. Then you probably were until that batch was shrunk by the light leaking issue. I suppose you should be in the third batch now.
  7. I have to admit I didn't scroll that far back... just checked the last few recent photos ;) By the way I don't mind the cutouts, I just found it remarkable that they were covered in the photos. But thanks for pointing out that that only applies for the latest ones. Although I still think they did it on purpose for better aestethics.
  8. Did you all notice that on every of those advertisement posts on their official twitter some fingers are blocking the view to the keyboard cutouts? I begin to wonder if the fingers are included in the device. https://mobile.twitter.com/thefxtec/status/1191784773796147200/photo/1
  9. One had to fill a form to change the order to QWERTZ layout when that became available. If you didn't do so, you should be getting QWERTY regardless of your location. But if you write them a mail as EskeRahn suggested, you are going to be on the safe side.
  10. @waxberry : Now that the test production has finished and (apart from the misplaced raises) looks fine, can you already tell if QWERTZ will ship at the same time as QWERTY? I wouldn't really mind if it will later, I'd just like to know as you said you are trying to achieve this. And as the limited offer for headphones/case expires soon (or already expired?) and the release is coming nearer I think it would be good if you could give us some more information on how the orders for QWERTZ will work. When and where can preorders be changed? And when will the option for QWERTZ layout be added on the
  11. Is it possible to disable autocorrect? On the Motorola Milestone (2) it was possible to have the suggestions displayed but not have them inserted automatically. That is something I would consider important for a keyboard phone. On the BlackBerry PRIV you can't turn autocorrect off and it happens to me a lot that I have to rewrite words that were correct but the software didn't know.
  12. Oh and as there are some here that seem to be unhappy with ~ printed on n, I should maybe add that (of ° and ~) tilde would be the symbol I could relinquish easier. But the degree symbol is something I would really like to have printed.
  13. Both the degree symbol and tilde are standard on german keyboards. ° (which is troubingly hidden on my PRIV, by the way) is usually called by pressing "Shift" + "^" and ~ by "AltGr" + "+" . I would prefer to have them both printed on my keyboard. And as you eliminated the third print on every other key by moving the symbols to keys nearby it would totally make sense to do the same for ~. One could also place it on L to have it nearer to its original place, but as someone already mentioned n is more intuitive as it is used for well known foreign words like Piñata there.
  14. Thank you for your answer. Would it be possible to post a picture of your updated layout in good time?
  15. It would be great to hear of @Waxberry if the latest suggestions got noticed and will be adapted. I'm kinda worried as there haven't been updates for quite a while.
  16. My priorities are 2>1>3>4 and 12>13>14>11. And I also want to once again endorse the proposal of raphaelcno (thanks for the explanation regarding '/# by the way).
  17. Either the apostrophe ' or accent á is missing on this version. Losing a symbol compared to prior layouts would be sad. I once again would suggest using raphaelcno's version but with # and ' swapped because for me it would be best if the ' is placed on the ä key. What I don't really mind is the placement of backspace \, rhombus # and tilde ~, so you might place them more similar to your suggested layout.
  18. As the layout seems to be mainly for German users and only additionally for Scandic/Swiss etc. I would favor choosing German Strg/Entf etc., especially as some others already said they don't really mind what's printed there. But I have to admit that's easy to say as a German ;) As you can see above I personally prefer Strg over STRG/strg but that's one of the less important things. Regarding the positioning of symbols I like raphaelcno's version a lot, but would suggest swapping ' to the ä key and # to the ü key, as I need ' way more often. Or are there arguments for the current placement
  19. It is really cool tro see how you're implementing more and more design wishes =) As someone already pointed out: It would still be nice if there was a downward arrow instead of Caps. [attachment file=12599] And as also someone said before: If the SYM button stays it would look better if the print was reading Sym instead of the all caps version.
  20. I just created an account only to say my opinion to this topic. I've been using smartphones with hardware keyboards with QWERTZ-layout for a long time now. What slowed me down most while typing has always been to not have the umlauts directly accessible. So I strongly support dedicated buttons for them. FN+(a/o/u) would still be okay, long press simply takes too much time.
