I just had to follow up with Pure support re the T1 variant.
It is NOT dead in the water. Please see the reply below to my email (sorry don’t know how to do the fancy quote thing in a box)
All I can is to re-iterate (and possibly clarify more) what was already said on forums: we are working on this, there isa a probability that we will offer T1 variant but as of now we do not have any ETAs and we cannot promise this for sure.
I will talk to our CTO today or tomorrow to see if we have any news on this front and we will notify the community in time.
The official confirmation will for sure come before production build starts shipping, so I suggest you not to cancel your order until then (you will lose your place in shipping queue in case you change your mind and order again).
So, there is still chance. I’m sure its low on the “to do” list, but it sounds like its still alive which is different to it not being offered at all.
