    I'm just going to post status updates on the crowd fund effort here. If you can't talk yourself into supporting this, I'm not going to try to in this thread. If you want to talk others out of supporting this start your own thread.

    This is just going to be for status updates for those who are interested.

    The campaign is here: https://igg.me/at/ceruleanmobile/emal/16395313

    You can donate any amount...

    Click the "Back it" button and then enter the amount.

    I see users giving various amounts from $5 and up.

    I've just received word that the ScreenBeam IS included for all Perks... It should be updated on the Indiegogo page soon.

    • Cerulean Moment for The Crew $5600, 0 of 500

    51 phones pledged for netting $14,608 leaving 8 donations totaling $997.

    Looks like we had a shift away from purely monetary donations to taking Perks. Perhaps some misunderstood how the Perks system works and changed how they donated?

    Remember, this is an actual phone that is ready for a production run, not just a concept.

    Also remember that every phone includes an Actiontek ScreenBeam Mini 2 Continuum Edition for your wireless Continuum setup right out of the box. I can't find that ScreenBeam device online for less than $53.99 including shipping and that is slow shipped with an estimated 1-3 weeks delivery time.

    Are you pulling back from this one?

    It has not changed in several days from what I have seen.

    I want to ask Greg many questions about his plans, the phone, etc. but it is hard to when it has not materialized yet...

    In my case, I needed the cash freed up to get a good price on what I want next. The Amazon page kept saying "One left in stock" and I wanted to lock it down rather than pay $30-$40 more later on.

    It's the @Daniel Rubino effect.
    A genius move. Complains about small userbase for Windows 10 Mobile phones, proceeds to tell users not to pay for Windows 10 Mobile phones.

    He must get some money from Apple or Google. Genius.

    I really do not understand the logic there. I listened to the pod cast on Friday. My take from it is it all ties into their views on how silent Microsoft is with mobile. I do not see how writing articles on non-windows mobile items or non-windows specific related items (Android/iOS) ties into getting Microsoft to come clean and announce something specific about Mobile. Let alone trying to get them to fork over 1M for the funding.

    It is not a game, and that is what it seems like from my perspective.

    Plot twist: WhartonBrooks actually has an investor, and all the money they need. At the (literal) last minute, said investor will "pledge" whatever is needed to hit $1.1 million. This way, they at least are guaranteed as many sales as how many devices were pledged in the crowdfunding campaign.
