Special mid-month update - shipping status of PBP ; PT and PP

I have no doubt that the demand will be grater than what we can pump out this year. The PinePhone pre-orders will be sold on a first-come first-served basis - people will get a week or two heads-up via social media etc.,

Unlike the Pinebook Pro pre-orders, there will be no prioritization of PINE64 community members. There are so many other partner-projects communities involved in this particular project, and we cannot alienate their user-base (nor force people from their community to join this forum). So, pre-orders will be open to all.

That said, even if the interest will be very big, the phone should not sell out within 12-24 hrs since the batch will be quite sizable. I imagine that it will be at least 2-3 days before pre-orders run dry. But I am guessing, not certain of this. This guess is based on previous experiences, which  may not apply in the PinePhone. Truth be told - we do not know (and no one knows) how big the demand is - its not like there are many other Linux phones out there.
