Next batch?
#1
So after waiting months for the pinetab to be available again, I saw yesterday, that it's available and put in in my shopping cart. I was on road and the website said, the item will be hold for 12 hours. When I arrived home, I wanted to complete my order. But suddenly, my shopping cart said, the item is no longer in stock.
So that means, the item is not hold for you and can be "stolen" from your cart.

That is so disappointing... Is there a way to get a notification on availability next time or is there a time frame known yet?


Thanks!

The best way, abrring the monthly update blog posts would be watching the Pine chats and social media accounts. You probably won't see a concrete timeline right now, bc there's a shortage on LCD panels.

I asked about some PineTab updates recently: https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=12175

About the Pine store, from memory that can happen if you have network problems.

Regarding notifications that something is about to drop - I often first see some update on some place like HackerNews. It would be good if they did give the community the heads up though...

My suggestion for knowing about the next release is to watch Pine64 twitter & forum and also other twitter accounts that post about Pine64 products. I wanted the EA Pinetab so I reviewed Pine64 twitter & website daily. I also watched OMGUbuntu twitter daily which is where I saw the first tweet about the EA in the Pine64 store. But don't rely on a blog announcement-Pine flubbed that one up royally with the EA. It is more work for the buyer to monitor the availability, but it pays off.
