PINE64 said that it will be offering future PinePhones that cost $100 more that come with a standard warranty and support. This could mean that there will be that no more PinePhone Community Editions that cost $149/$199, and you will have to pay $249/$299 to get the PinePhone in the future. That will make me sad that I waited too long to buy the Convergence Package.

Another possibility is that PINE64 will continue to sell something like a "developers edition" with a one month warranty and zero support for $149/$199 that won't have the logo of any distro on it, but I don't think that is likely.
Yes it will be a shame if you can't buy a PinePhone at the same price points. The community editions was a nice idea to give back. It also seems apparent PinePhone success is dependent on Phosh from Purism and a donation to their devs could help improve Phosh for everyone.

I'm hanging around to see what is in the next Pine64 news update, hopefully another window to buy PinePhone again.
