Hi- Please could you help set my expectations on where I fit into the timescale of deliveries when the Next is finally shipped? At the time I became aware of the Next project, I had missed the window to directly contribute to the crowdfunding exercise, but I was still early enough to purchase a Next as they were still available from the website at that time. I am clear that providing there are no serious unexpected challenges the Next should be available to ship over this summer, but I am not so clear on how long after that my order might be shipped? I assume that original crowdfunders will be shipped first, but am not aware how fast Nexts will be coming off the "production" line, and more specifically, where I am in the queue and how long the queue is? I would appreciate some guidance on this, so I can set my expectations as best as possible?

It goes without saying that i am eagerly waiting for the day

Thank you

Paul

I was kinda hoping it would ship by my birthday, but seeing that's less than a month away, I'm not holding my breath.

I do not think they plan to artificially delay orders from the store given the delays (this I picked up from informal conversation a long time ago).

How they ship may be a practical matter. When the boards were shipped, they were grouped according to destination country so all the paperwork would be the same. It makes sense they would do something similar for the cased Nexts but since there are a lot more of them, maybe they would be doing multiple batches.

Anyway it's not like I know anything about it and I don't think anyone can really answer your questions yet.
