Nice guess, but the main reason for my site being "outdated" is the lack of noteworthy news and the fact that I'm currently having exams.
i read that saygus did a tweet that we should all stay tuned for big news on fcc certification. do not hold your breath, though. care to wager a guess on what the big news is? my guess is they have resubmitted phone and just need to wait to hear back from fcc. same thing they did last year.
I just checked and you're correct. If anyone else wants to check to confirm, note that there are 4 grantee codes for Saygus that you need to search: XP3, 2ANBX, 2ANBY, and 2ANBZ. (I found these by using the "Grantee Search" for all companies in South Jordan, Utah). As of this post, XP3 is the only grantee code that yields any results (4 of them, to be exact), and all of them are from 2009. So yeah, either they're lying or perhaps the FCC site just doesn't list grants until they're finalized or whatever. Who knows?
I certainly am never buying a phone from this company even if they do ever manage to actually make one, but I can't stop watching this train wreck out of morbid curiosity at this point.
Tim Darkinsaw (Droid-Life.com commenter) said:I take the train that stops near their office every day. Because I'm one of the people that paid a bunch of cash on a pre-order I got curious and tried to go talk to them. I figured it'd be a bunch of people crowded around tables getting stuff done. But their office has been empty and dark every day I went (and I tried a lot). Finally I asked somebody that works in the same building about it and they just laughed and said that their offices are almost completely empty, that they paid a huge amount of money to lease enough space to get their name on the building but that they have almost nobody working there.
After I heard about their "FCC Approval" I went and looked for it. Nothing is there. There's no phone and no FCC filing. This company has been misleading everyone. It would be one thing for them to say, "We failed. Sorry". It's another thing entirely to spend a ton of pre-order cash to lease a ton of building space and then not use it and then keep telling lies in order to string people along. And all along they aren't even showing up to their own office to work! This sounds like a lawsuit in the making.

Thank you for the retort.In fact I expressed '+1' and Smileys in confirmation with the postings of @porkandbeans and @Boom515.If they have any objection in it I will wholeheartedly withdraw them.I think internet has introduced these shortcuts in order to make communication easier.And in xda even many eminent and well known developers are using them.However if you are feeling any kind of irritation in having used them by me I beg your pardon.And I shall make it a point not to use them in my comments relating to your posts.

As we approach four weeks to ship date without any announcement from carriers about compatibility, without any FCC info, without any info on beta testing, the risk of this being vaporware increases and with that increase, risk of losing the whole $550 outweighs the reward of saving $50-150.
