La livraison des kits de béta-testeur avait été annoncée pour fin janvier, mais l’annonce s’avère être erronée et due à une confusion interne à Evovelo entre les pré-séries et les kits de béta testeur, dont la livraison est maintenant annoncée pour fin avril 2018. Ci-dessous le communiqué en anglais de la société Evovelo:
As many of you have already know, we made an error in announcing the delivery of the Pre-series to beta testers. We’re sorry about this, there was an internal misunderstanding. Pre-series is not the Beta tester series, they are in fact the prototypes for technical and manufacturing purposes.
Beta tester kits are actually estimated to deliver by the end of April, where we can finally enter into the long anticipated testing phase. We apologise for this error and for getting your hopes up! We know how long a wait it has been. It’s been over 3 years of work and tackling many obstacles but we are so close to the final line. We need 3 more months to get you these units and we are not giving up. Thank you very much for all your patience and support, we wouldn’t be here without it.
