I will provide a versions which hopefully sounds a bit better here in a few minutes and open this up for further improvements.

So, here is my proposal (I changed a few bits and also the order of the last sentence):


Quote:Sehr geehrte Zollbeamtinnen, sehr geehrte Zollbeamte,

bei dem PinePhone-Smartphone handelt sich sich um ein Entwicklungsmuster und nicht um ein fertiges Produkt. Sowohl die Hardware als auch die Software sind noch nicht fertiggestellt. Deshalb wird das PinePhone derzeit nicht an Endverbraucher sondern ausdrücklich nur an Entwickler verkauft. Diese Zielgruppe beteiligt sich im Rahmen eines Open-Source-Projekts an der noch lange nicht abgeschlossenen Entwicklung (einschl. Test und Evaluation) des PinePhones.

Die Zertifizierung des Geräts gemäß den für die CE-Kennzeichnung notwendigen Kriterien sowie der eventuell notwendigen Erfüllung der FuAG-Bestimmungen läuft aktuell noch. Das im PinePhone verwendete Funkmodem ist bereits gemäß dieser Bestimmungen zertifiziert.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen

PINE64 Community-Team

Comments and suggestions welcome.

The form of address in the original letter from PINE64 ("Sehr geehrte Zollbeamter,"), is weird and wrong, and should 100% be changed. Your proposed correction is better, but I would either address the the reader directly: ("Sehr geehrte Zollbeamtin, sehr geehrter Zollbeamter,") or just put both genders together, more indirectly and boring: ("Sehr geehrte Zollbeamtinnen und Zollbeamten,").

The rest of the original letter is no poem but completely fine in my opinion, your corrections make slight changes in the meaning, which might not be a problem, but maybe they do. The original letter for example says that the phone is intended to be sold to developers, but in your version it says that it's explicitly not being sold to consumers, which is a much stronger claim.
