We continue to extend our heartfelt wish that you all are staying safe and healthy.
We wish we have already shipped all Truly Ergonomic Cleave keyboard pre-orders, but most importantly, we wish we have a time machine to teach us valuable lessons so we don’t fall into another pandemic in the future that currently feels like an altered timeline.
The good news is that the manufacturing of the first batch of Truly Ergonomic keyboards is happening already. We reiterate that our products are manufactured in China, and along the manufacturing delays we have experienced due to the recent COVID-19 outbreak that closed or greatly delayed all factories in China, we want to mention that we have overcome the last hurdle.
The first batch of keyboards was promised by mid-January 2020, before the Asian New Years’ Holidays and before the COVID outbreak, but due to a minor error by the PCBA factory they could not provide the PCBA before the holidays/outbreak, and after they returned, they continued making small errors to the point that we decided to look for another factory to fully design and assemble our custom PCBA (Printed Circuit Board Assembly – being the internal electronics panel).
This entire redoing sounds awesome, as the new PCBA will be significantly better than the previous, but it means that we were forced to start the PCBA from scratch with the new factory. The worthy news is that the redesign has been finalized, the samples have been finalized, and that we are now manufacturing the new and better PCBAs that will allow us to assemble the keyboards.
We continue working diligently with all factories to provide your keyboard as soon as available. We now estimate this first batch will be ready during June 2020 and so we’ll be able to start shipping the first batch of keyboards immediately after.
It feels like is taking forever, we know, but we were finding ways to better the design and increase the quality of the keyboard with the side effect of taking longer to manufacture than originally expected, this in addition to the multiple manufacturers we deal along their multiple delays. Rest assured we will provide an outstanding keyboard with a superb design and the best quality available.
We will continue keeping you informed of the manufacturing and delivery progress of your Truly Ergonomic Cleave Keyboard, an awesome product worth waiting for.
