Firstly, The product looks fantastic and can’t wait to get my hands on mine once it arrives.
I think the communication from electric imp has been a little poor and fragmented. I only randomly came across availability on Sparkfun, there was no “news” on the website, the last blog was from July and couldn’t find any mention on twitter.
There seems to be too many communications channels, and all seem to be different news. Even the homepage has remained pretty much static since the imp was announced.
Even the “Stay in the loop” mailing list has been stale- I don’t think I have received one email from imp.
Moan over - I hope this is just due to early days and the team being overloaded to get the product out there.
