I think there were plans to open new sales in November, but because of the LCD shortages, it was postponed.

As for the software, I think the pinephone and pinetab share a lot of similar architecture, so improvements in e.g. the lima graphics driver will also improve things on the pinebook.  I think the device is supported by the mainline linux kernel, so the best way to get improvements would be to directly work with upstream developers (kernel.org, the mesa project, etc.)
I don't want upgrade my Pinebook, I want can use my Pinebook. I know that Pine64 only does the hardware, but hardware must be done with criteria. For example, if I put speakers in a laptop, I want hear something with It. Or if I put a HDMI output, I want conect a external monitor.

Also, in this thread you can see how the development of the Pinephone kernel has replaced the Pinebook kernel and when replacing the LCD drivers the screen on the Pinebook has stopped working. Yet another example of poor hardware development.

What you say is correct cross the board, apparently.  Out of sight, out of mind, rather like children let loose in a toy store-- no discipline.
