From the blog:
Quote:the Pinebook Pros from both community production-runs and a large portion of the ‘public batch’ have now shipped.

Does this mean if we're from the community production run, we should have received a notification of it shipping by now?

You should have. However, it's possible DHL hasn't processed your shipment yet.

The public batch shipments will go out for the next 7 days or so, but all community shipments should have been fulfilled

I received the email they were about to go out along about the same as the earliest posts here talking about the email, but I have heard nothing since then. At what point should I contact support about this? I have no problem being patient, I just want to know at what point I should assume there's a problem. Thanks.

If you don't get anything by Friday then please email: pinebook@pine64.org and CC: info@pine64.org 
Thanks - lets hope this is just a DHL mess-up.

Okay, will do. Thanks.

On the PineTab production pre-CNY --Yes, please. I think getting these devices into the hands of a broader range of developers will get an operational OS much sooner. Perhaps ship the same default OS as the PinePhone?

"As a teaser I attach an image of Manjaro running mainline kernel and Panfrost FOSS GPU drivers on the Pinebook Pro – pretty cool huh?"

Yes! Yes, very cool indeed! I'm running Manjaro ARM on my Raspberry Pi 4 - it's fast (2GHz overclock) and smooth. It's not my daily driver, but if I had a desk to have a permanent setup then it could be just about. I'd be totally psyched with a Pinebook Pro running Manjaro!  

And I guess the fact that it's running the mainline kernel means that it will be easier for developers to maintain? E.g. fewer device-specific tweaks needed?

I'm in the exact same situation, so they may have messed up more than once.
