  1. We have very high end 3D-printing facilities in our University, which students can use. Has anyone tested out some models which could be production ready? Not that I am experienced 3D-printer, but this might be a good starting point to learn when you have some already validated models to use 🙂
  2. From what I have noticed, the side without the second arm is not as firmly fit (or because the upper part is supported by the other arm) and that's why the clacking happens. For me, when the keyboard is open in landscape upper left corner is completely still, but right corner is able to move just a little to make clacking noise. For me it seems like that the fit between the bolt holding the arm in the screen and arm in the base could be more finely tuned or the second arm should also exist in the bottom to generate more pressure to keep the screen balanced. Since the spring really do through a punch 😄 I almost dropped the phone the other day when I tried to open the slider one handed.
  3. Got my phone on Monday, but I have been super busy. Just now I have started to set it up. Tbh, I am little surprised that it even arrived 😄
  4. Probably a combination of all with different weightings on each: Type of device, receiving country, payment date, order date. I didn't put too much weighting on actual payment date since I paid almost immediately when I got a notice. I would doubt that they base it completely on exact timing of payment. Even though it's probably easier to do. For example if 2 people paid during same business week, I would assume that some other metrics are taken into consideration than exact payment timing. Loosely based on the conversations with the support, I think I would have gotten my device earlier if it were just a normal QWERTY. (They always talked about some QWERTZs being in the next batch since probably the start of this year..)
  5. Interesting. My pre-order was placed on June 25th. Maybe it's even smaller batch than I anticipated or they made a really small batch of QWERTZ and the rest are normal QWERTY. Or they haven't allocated all devices yet (I wouldn't keep my hopes up though). In some of the previous cases allocation has gone over a couple of days. I would double check inbox + trash since website's Order Status has never been up to date until the device is actually shipped.
  6. Based on the Tracking number thread. Atleast a few QWERTZ devices have been allocated for distribution today (mine included). In general, it would make sense that the rest of the pre-ordered QWERTZ devices were now made in this small batch. I assume that there were not too many of those left whom did not have their QWERTZ device yet. Maybe some later pre-orders were still not made, but at the same time they need to order certain amount of parts and I would assume that they would use all of them (i.e. they do not order [as an example] 87 keyboards, but 100 since that's the smallest batch that they can order / make).
  7. Got a notification 4 hours ago. QWERTZ for me as well. : ) Maybe it's late April's Fools. It's not the first time when fxtec has been late with things.
  8. Xperia X Compact is a different story since it's based on the same socket as other Xperia Xs (Snapdragon 650). XA2 are using Snapdragon 630. As I am not an expert on porting I'm not sure, but as I have understood, the socket is pretty much the most time consuming part of the porting process (i.e. fixing the compability bugs). Alien Davik is however closed source and Jolla has done some tinkering into it for the latest Android kernels. Android support for community devices has been in discussion multiple times, but so far we have not heard anything concrete. Best effort was and idea that some community members would sign an NDA and help Jolla with it, but it had it's own problems as well. You can always raise the question again in Sailfish community meetups. Next one is coming this week and you can propose topics here (nothing really proposed so far): https://together.jolla.com/question/54157/sailfishos-open-source-collaboration-meeting-planning/
  9. Linus made a video about the phone on his new channel. Camera quality probably the most significant negative.
  10. When delays start to be this long, you are bound to be hit by factors that are not under your control. Not that it changes anything, but it's 6 months since payment was due. I just wonder for how long can a company survive with such delays. In tech world, in half a year not only does your hardware grow older faster, but it also kills all future sales if you cannot provide the product 2-3 months after the general availability should have started. Not that I care about the specs personally. I'm still using a phone from 2012.. On the positive side Sailfish port will get better day by day 🙂
  11. I received a payment request on 2nd of August for my June 25 preorder (Paid straight after the notification was received). I have not received stock assigned notification. Might be because it's QWERTZ, hard to know. I guess I'm still waiting for some time.
  12. That's a Github organization which contains repositories, each pretty much required for phone to run properly and they usually take care of different things on the phone. Repositories are ordered by modification date, and you can see which one has received changes lately. Repositories contain issue -trackers (https://github.com/sailfish-on-fxtecpro1/<REPOSITORYNAMEHERE>/issues) where developers (or porters in this case) can add discussion and notifications on what is left to be done or what bugs they have encountered. Sometimes there are pull request (https://github.com/sailfish-on-fxtecpro1/<REPOSITORYNAMEHERE>/pulls) which are incoming work where developer request feedback/review from others. Sometimes organizations also contain projects which further can help you to track down the progress and see what people are working on. They include Kanvases and other simple project management tools. However, if you are not a developer, these won't generally tell you much. In general Github / Git is kinda advanced topic to touch on.
  13. I think I placed an order 25th and it was then mentioned to be still valid (if I remember correctly, it was supposed to end within a week either 26th, 27th or 30th). Though I wasn't able to find a post that mentions a specific date that it ended. However Waxberry still mentioined about it within a week of my order. And I scanned through Facebook and Twitter and there is not specific mention that this offer did expire at that time (i.e. no "This is the last day to order to get these nice bonuses").
  14. Forgot to add that you can track the progress of the port here: https://github.com/sailfish-on-fxtecpro1
