There’s been a decent amount of buzz surrounding the TREZOR hardware wallet, but very little excitement as to how long they’ve taken to be released (we’re still waiting), but Satoshi Labs released an update on the highly-anticipated devices last week, and they say things are “on track” with the Classic version of the wallet.
SatoshiLabs writes in their blog:
One of the first plastic cases for TREZOR Classics has been presented to us during our visit of the production facility today. We’re glad to confirm that our new producer is in line with our ETA announced in previous update.
In that previous update, the company had informed their customer base that the initial manufacturer they had selected to produce the cases for the TREZOR Classic ” turned out to be less professional in the real production,” missing a number of deadlines and not delivering satisfactory results.
But things are looking up for customers. SatoshiLabs says that shipments for pre-order backers are going to be shipped by the end of July. And as soon as they have more of the devices in stock, they say they will be opening their e-shop for regular sales.
In following days the first testing batch of 100 pieces will be produced and completed. Then we are going to put the devices through environmental chamber testing. They will be tortured with extreme temperatures, humidity and vibrations and once they prove to sustain standards for high quality electronics, we’ll give the green light to production.
So there you have it — just a little while longer! (via CoinDesk)
