If the dev/team doesn't share any information what so ever about the current progress of development (such is the case) people will lose interest. A way to keep people interested is to release a beta, give a rough indication as to what the process is currently at or at least provide information as to what YEAR it will be released.
your letting your lack of experience with peoples interest show.
the thing is, just because you might like testing a buggy beta, most people wont, and just because you saw a short video of it working doesnt mean its ready for the masses, in fact, what he showed might be the ONLY things that work, and everything else crashes the phone, but you dont take that into consideration
if it was released as a beta now and it didnt work right people might be turned off by it and never come back. its best the way its being done. but more updates i think would benefit this thread by leaps and bounds. in the op it needs an "whats working" and "whats not working" kind of thing.
