I am not sure if this thread is already outdated… anyway, I am so excited about my arrived Librem5 I have to share the news
Ordered: 15th September 2017
Shipping estimate email: 26th January 2021
Shipping estimate: within 2 weeks (27th January - 10th February 2021)
Received: 22nd February 2021
A note to the shipping: It got shipped on the 5th of February for the first time but DHL returned it to Purism right away (might be because I ordered a spare battery and DHL had problems with the Li battery declaration). But the Purism support kept me informed and finally it shipped again on the 18th of February.
By the way: it got delivered to Germany. Customs was not an issue, DHL handled everything. DHL emailed me and I had to pay in total 134.53€ online for VAT and handling fees (24.4€). The VAT also includes the taxes for my accessories order (92$, spare battery, screen protector, 64GB SD card, PGP card).
Now I only need more time for doing some development on it or at least help somewhere. How I would love to be a student again and have all that free time for projects (I don’t want to say students don’t work hard, I just had more time back then than now…)
