Emails are going out (atleast i got one that shipping will begin in february). I assume that does not mean everyone gets it in february,i ordered somewhat late compared to a lot and i hope mine ships in february but i can see how they would ship mostly in order of when you paid. Thats only speculation though.
This is a link to the blog post https://puri.sm/posts/librem-14-update-shipping-starts-in-february-with-extended-battery/
And this is what the email i got read (i excluded all the info thats in the blog post and my name):
"Dear John Smith
In short: Shipping starts in February with extended battery.
Before shipping you will be contacted by email to verify the shipping
address. A shipping time frame for your order will then also be provided.
Please read on for more details and reply to this email if you still
I hope people who ordered had/have a bit more patience.
My post stirred up a great deal more passion than i neccessarily intended, i mainly wanted to know if there were updates i had missed or if they could update us on delays etc ( i know someone who used to work high up for dell,acer,plantronics etc but all supply chains across various industries are affected ). I feel like i got that information clarified earlier in the thread though people took offense to the word “Toy” i think it was not meant as anything demeaning but rather how everyone who is into their tech,IT,or other interests cherish their product beyond what average joe or jane does.
No matter, I am pleasantly suprised with the update and the email, i had personally thought initial deliveries might be delayed to late spring.
On a personal level i have recieved a great deal of help with previous orders and good communication from the team so i hope nobody here got riled up to the point of anger,or being offended.
Thanks for all the feedback everyone, and it seems that even though we all want things to move at warp speed,despite the issues with chokepoints like chips and other parts that have only one or a couple manufacturers/suppliers, People might see their librem 14 in february sometime,and people like me who backed a little later may still see it shipped in february, but if not, likely not far behind.
