At this point, we do not have confirmed information yet for ES07DCA and ES07D01.
This concludes the recap! Drop your comment below and let us know what you think.
Any idea when we’ll get our shiny monitors? I’m currently borrowing a monitor off of someone as I bought a monitor while waiting for my monitor and that has broken and to be honest, I’m beginning to get a bit fed up with monitors.
Yes that is correct. It will not make it for December anymore.
Since we have done similar development for ES07D03 > ES07DC9, from what I heard is that the process will be much faster. Although I haven’t got any confirmation yet on this, so I can’t say anything more.
Production will be enough to cover all orders currently on the backlog and then some.
I think in another post they mentioned that December shipping doesn’t seem likely. I kind of agree because they show us the production is happening I. December, then they most likely are going to do a quality check and if that comes out well then they ship out the ones but it has to go through customs which takes a lot of time and then deliver to the warehouses in respective countries and then ship out from there. So I say January the most
At this moment we don’t have an update for ES07DCA. While it was promised that ES07DCA update was to come after ES07D02’s mass production, we have yet to hear any news/developments coming from our partner.
Sorry that you are still waiting for your unit. Yes ES07D02 will eventually ship. We have units already in mass production.
