On the Saygus Website under Terms&Conditions it says: "The Saygus V2 Device is expected to be ready to ship on or about March 30, 2015, subject to reasonable delays in manufacturing and/or delivery."
In the Wireless HD demonstration Video, there is a red LED blinking. See here: http://youtu.be/vzjkt2kl2ng?t=3m37s
And if you take a look at one of the official images (you find this on different sites on the internet: http://images.derstandard.at/2014/11/13/saygusfeatures.jpg), there are two LEDs lighting up next to the upper speaker.
Before someone asks:
I'm just really, really interested in the V² and can't wait to get my hands on this awesome piece of hardware.
I am no employee of Saygus and I don't get any money from them for "promoting" their phone or anything else.
I emailed them over a week and a half ago. Heard nothing yet. I bet i get a sharp response when I ask to cancel!
I do think that they are dealing with tons of questions and are most likely swamped with emails from around the world. Most of the spec's along with brief information are listed.
so I'm just curious what are some of the main questions people are trying to find out? If its that important why not call Saygus.
U can cancel the order even when you get the option of shipping it's States it clearly on the faq. If anyone isn't happy with the prices after certain taxes are appliedI admit I am getting slightly cold feet about my pre-order. I expect once I factor in delivery to the UK and add VAT to it all, I am looking at around £480 for this device. I thought I should mention my doubts, since I was the first on this thread to announce my order.
£480 feels a bit high for a 32-bit ARMv7 device at this point. I sort of want to encrypt all my storage, but am worried that the performance just isn't there in ARMv7, even if Qualcomm supposedly has some open-source driver support for cryptographic acceleration (qcedev). I am not too clear exactly how things stand performance-wise with that driver on Snapdragon 801 - does anyone know? I know a big deal was made of the crypto module in SD 805 (Nexus 6 does not take advantage on stock Android because Google didn't include Qualcomm's open-source driver), which makes me concerned for the situation in SD 801.
I am also hoping to hear more about the device, perhaps even a review, before I commit myself to buying it. I need to know what the screen is like, how the camera performs, some impressions about the fit and finish of the final hardware, and maybe some other details.
I'll give it another couple of weeks before I make up my mind, but I'm tempted to just ride out this wave of early 64-bit catch-up on Android by picking up Intel's subsidy on the Asus Zenfone 2, which should be out in a similar time-frame. Feel bad even saying that as I'd love for these guys at Saygus to nail this device, which specs-wise is definitely taking things in a good direction.
Anyway, maybe I'll offer my order to someone else if there is any demand in the UK.
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.
