Looks like we're all in the same batch.

I ordered the convergence package to Australia on the 13th and I too got an email yesterday about dispatch via DHL from Hong Kong today.

I contacted Pine64 sales team yesterday to clarify the shipment status — they've already replied that a new batch of shipments (destined for those, who I believe ordered after Oct. 22) is in transit from China to Hong Kong at this moment. Additionally, a hour after receiving this reply, I also got a email with the tracking number for DHL shipment. So I believe people who ordered the device around Oct. 28 should start receiving the shipment emails, too.

I received shipment email with DHL tracking number this morning...very exciting...I ordered on Nov. 2

It's expected to arrive on Wednesday the 25th according to DHL.

It arrived 1 day early.
However, I had to pay 2200 yen for customs (first time I ever had to do so), which I didn't have in my wallet.
So I asked the delivery man to come back tomorrow, which he agreed on.

Phone arrived, customs paid.
The phone is gigantic compared to what I had over the many years, but I don't mind that.
The box was so packed with tape, as if the Pine team didn't want me to open it up. (;・∀・)

At first I didn't really understand the complaints about the kill switches being inside of the phone.
Now I do: because the cover is super firmly attached.
Not only that, the battery is so firmly inserted, I'm forced to use some pointy metalic object to just remove the battery, so there's no way to replace the micro SD or battery without having to cause physical damage to the battery.

That's disturbing. The battery on my pmOS CE phone is not an unusually tight fit.

I've got the same problem with my Manjaro CE. I have to rock the battery back and forth with a screwdriver to get it out.

My newest Manjaro phone was a bit 'tight' the first few times I had to remove the battery but it is not quite as hard to remove after a while.
I can easily remove it with my thumb nail now.

My Brave Heart phone had a very tight rear cover to start with, but it removes easily now.

With a few uses, it will get easier.

IF it was loose to start with, it may just fall off after being opened a few times.

I haven't been able to get software cenrer working but using pacman from bash does the trick, and I honestly prefer CLI for updates. Maybe a GUI for choosing software packages if they are new to me. I have had to enter an APN before, but don't know if it's somewhere weird or just a couple of clicks from settings. Only added that stuff under Android.
I haven't tried a SIM card in it yet, how are the standard phone functions?

it doesn't get happy
it doesn't get sad
it just runs programs
