This is the third in a series of posts updating our progress in shipping through the backlog of mass-produced Librem 5 orders. If you have not yet read Part 1 and Part 2, I recommend you do so, as in those parts I discuss our current strategy of splitting the remaining Librem 5 orders into three production runs, E3, E4 and E5. In this post I will give a brief status update on our progress to date and what milestones are remaining between now and when we reach shipping parity with the mass-produced Librem 5. At that point the mass-produced Librem 5 will join Librem 14 and Librem 5 USA as a product that ships within our standard 10-business-day window.

Very excited about:
As the number of Librem 5s in the wild grows, we also continue to see more community participation in software development for the platform, which can only build in momentum as more people get their phones.
Also excited about:
early Q3 2023 seems achievable [for shipping parity]
That should mean no more “Where is My Librem 5?” posts - from anyone.
Wow, wouldn’t that be something. Then what would we all talk about…?
I wonder, if more L5’s in the wild or eventual parity will mean more resources shifted towards sofware dev side? Something to hope, maybe.
I’ll help them assemble phones for free!
In general, yes I think so. Delivering these phones is absolutely critical to us and the majority of our resources over the last couple of years has gone to this. I doubled-down on this in many respects when I took the reins of day-to-day aspects of the company last year. There are many exciting things we want to do, but many of them I have had to pause, for now, to ensure that our focus is on delivering these phones.
