The NexDock is a promising device that’s gone through some pretty big setbacks on its road to release. The device’s goal is to transform your Windows 10 Mobile device into a laptop through Continuum, and it was a major success on Indiegogo. After getting 121% of required funding, everything seemed like it would be fine. Then a fire destroyed the first shipment of devices.
Thankfully, however, NexDock has recovered from this and is producing new units. These should be ready to ship in the middle of August, and you can check out the company’s official statement below.
Here is a quick update on the (re)manufacturing of NexDocks.
After having checked all boxes one by one, our ODM concluded that none of the units that sustained the fire are in a condition that can be restored to pass the odor and color tests. Therefore, you will all receive newly manufactured NexDocks.
One of the main reasons of why (re)manufacturing of NexDocks takes 45 days is the lead time of LCD screens – it’s rather long due to manufacturing being backed up. There’s a bit of good news though: Since there were around 900 LCD screens that have not been affected by the fire, our ODM will be able to expedite 900 NexDocks, which are now expected to be shipped by mid-August.
The rest of the units are still due to be shipped at the end of August as we previously reported.
The NexDock looks really interesting, and there hopefully won’t be anymore issues before they ship.
