Out of the loop: Librem 5 pre-order? Hasn't it been shipping for a year?

I’m not following every breath of your venture but my last memory is Librem 5 shipped last year. Or has been shipping since last year? And now there is a pre-order page on your website for Librem 5. It doesn’t say it’s new hardware. OK, I could go on the Internet Archive and check whether last year you offered the same processor or you are now taking pre-orders for an updated model, but come on: you could certainly explain these things more clearly on your site.

It doesn’t say the hardware is finalized yet, but curiously it doesn’t say anything about physical dimensions. Am I the only one for who physical dimensions are integral hardware specs?

The Evergreen batch (mass production batch) of the Librem 5 is going to start shipping this month.

Hopefully all web pages are updated soon to reflect that it is actually going in production.

The earlier batches were small, and used to refine the hardware. As a result of testing in Dogwood, Purism actually increased the size of the case.

Check this post :slight_smile:
