No need for the attitude, this could easily have been a comment on the “Availability and Price” thread. The only argument for this being its own thread is that the information being asked for isn’t given in any previous thread.
That said, I’m curious about this too. It seems like everyone who’s gotten a phone so far has either chosen a Broadmobi modem or hasn’t responded to questions about which modem they got. I have to wonder if people who are requesting Gemalto (now Thales?) modems are just being sent to the back of the line while Purism makes arrangements for putting the PLS-8 on a custom board.
