  1. Thank you, this is exactly what I needed! I didn't realize I had to tap into the "English (US)" option to get different keyboard layouts.
  2. I have updated my Pro1 X to official LineageOS 21 with root. My only problem with the update is that my keyboard mapping seems to have changed slightly. On LOS 20, my key mappings matched what was printed on the physical keys. Now they more closely match a standard en-US keyboard: I get a semicolon (;) where the key says question mark (?), I get a question mark where the key says pipe (|), and I cannot get a pipe at all. This severely limits the functionality of terminal emulators such as Termux, which I use regularly. Does anyone know of a fix for this issue?
  3. My Pro1 X just arrived about half an hour ago. Luckily, my device doesn't have a depleted battery, but it came out of the box at around 10 to 15 percent. I'm guessing some units were close to dying when F(x)tec checked them, and they fully ran out during transit.
  4. It's finally happening! Just got a notification from IGG that my perk has shipped, with a USPS tracking number (I'm in the United States).
  5. I've moved to a new address between the last update and now. When I saw the most recent update, I sent a e-mail to F(x)tec asking if I could have my shipping address changed. Interestingly, they responded and changed the address very quickly, and I even got a message from Indiegogo that the shipping address on my order was updated. I mention this because I've heard people on IGG claim that they couldn't change their shipping addresses with F(x)tec. The fact that I could do it quickly feels like an indication--albeit a small one--that they genuinely are hopeful things will work out this time.
  6. That's good news for me; it's the exact model I ordered. The bad news? My ID is 1874. No dice on this allotment. It does make me wonder, though: might I (and others who ordered that version) be prioritized in the next contributor batch as well?
  7. I ordered via the IGG campaign (#1874) and purchased the pre-early bird 256 GB perk, with a QWERTY keyboard, no engraving, and switched from LineageOS to Android. I am located in the US. It appears some orders from batch 1 are arriving in the US now. I haven't inquired as to what batch my order is in, but I have not yet received a shipping notification, so I assume mine is not in batch 1. That being said, the number of confirmed orders I'm seeing is rather small for a 707-unit batch. It's possible that my order is indeed in batch 1 and it's simply shipping slowly. If that's the case,
  8. I believe there was a thread at one point where people would post their order number for the original Pro1, the country their order was shipping to, and when they got a shipping notification for the device. This allowed people to infer information about the order of shipping. Does that thread still exist? If so, we might start using it once we get notifications, or start posting such information here.
  9. I own the Gemini PDA, a predecessor to the Astro which was also made by Planet Computers and that has a similarly-sized keyboard. I have relatively short and stubby thumbs, and I find it somewhat difficult to type on the Gemini using only my thumbs. For me, it's much easier to set the Gemini down on a flat surface and type as I would on a regualr keyboard. I do not own a Pro1 but am slated to receive a Pro1 X. I can give a more detailed comparison of the two devices once the Pro1 X arrives.
  10. I don't own the Cosmo Communicator, but I do own its predecessor, the Gemini PDA. The 4G model of the Gemini can be used as a phone, but it's really not designed to be a phone--it has no outer screen and is essentially built around its keyboard. I bought the WiFi-only model of the Gemini PDA knowing that I had no intention to use it as a phone; I always intended to buy the Pro1 / Pro1 X or a device like it to use as an actual phone. To that end, I installed Debian Linux on the Gemini and use it as a full Linunx UMPC. The Gemini is now 5 years old and is definitely showing its age. I
  11. The first mention of an upgraded camera sensor was in F(x)tec's February 2021 update on IGG, the same update in which the SD662 chipset was revealed. F(x)tec appear to have come through with this. The first image of the new sensor was in their June 2021 update. Mentioned again in their August 2021 update, and most recently in their October 2021 update: As final assembly is beginning now, I assume it's safe to say they have all the sensors now, and they will be included with the Pro1 X.
  12. I'm located in the central United States, near the Kansas City region.
  13. November 2020 backer of the Pro1-X and first-time poster here. F(x)Tec's February update on IGG says they are due to start manufacturing when Shiyan, in the Bao'an district of Shenzhen, "come[s] out of covid lockdown next week." I found this post on Baidu (in Chinese) stating that many restrictions in Shiyan were being lifted on 20 February, now two days ago. I think the speculation that the February update was written in relation to last week is correct. It's also possible that F(x)Tec really was expecting restrictions to be lifted next week, and it turned out they were lifted early
