With the decision to sell the V4 SA yourselves, are you still planning to offer sales through retailers? I see the one I pre-ordered through has taken their pre-order link down. If you are still planning to offer them through retailers, any idea when a large enough batch will be available to start satisfying the backlog of requests? I am aware of the limitations (very small team, niche product, small batches) so am not expecting miracles. I'd appreciate any thoughts you could pass along.

Same question from me. I have been on the waiting list with Vesalia for a long time now without any info on delivery dates...

Everywhere I look the pre-orders have been taken down. Any word on when this will be available?

Really? Selling via partners has been stopped?

At least as of today there is direct sales only.
The reason for the direct sales has been explained here:
CLICK HERE 
The direct sales has the following advantages for the users.
  - Available for list price (and not over list price)
  - Offered as complete, ready to use system
  - Direct Support from the Apollo-Team
  - Being invited in V4 Support channel, email information on important updates, etc...

The V4 and AROS is today in an early phase.
There will be very regular updates and there will be issues to solve and to explain. There the direct contact and support to the users is pretty important. And this level of technical support needed in the early phase is more than resellers are generally able to provide.

Hi Gunnar, I am a real Vampire fan, but communications about this could have been better. I have been waiting from the beginning for a fair chance on buying a V4. Now I am back in the line.

Gunnar,

I know this is a new product and not ready for retail sale. Do you have insights into production batch size & shipments going forward for the V4 SA systems?

Quick question.  I registered here weeks ago for the V4 but haven't had a confirmation email for registration.  Should I expect one or just when I've been allocated a unit?

I've not seen one either, though it's only been a few days in my case. I don't know if there's supposed to be an automated reply - but I certainly didn't see one.

Thanks for the response.  At least it's not just me.  Happy to wait but I would like to know I'm on the list.  Fingers crossed!

Hey Tim.  I looked through my junk mail but couldn't find it anywhere.  Are you saying you received an email confirming your registration?  If so, I'll try and register again or follow up with the team.  Thanks.

Weird. Havenít received any confirmation either and my e-mail address does not yield any result. I am sure I filled out the V4 form above and sent it.

Ciao Eugenio,
the confirmation page is only for the V500, V600 and V1200.
For the V4 you should receive a mail from Biggun / Miri

Claudio,

Is there any other way to check?  I've entered my information 3 times and can't find anything in email.
