Long-awaited FrogPad2 seems to be released. FrogPad page in Facebook said FrogPad2 will be released soon. FrogPad2 was scheduled to be released in 2012, but the release was postponed because of funding issues.
In 2012, I ordered a Frogpad2. I paid the money via Paypal. I was waiting FrogPad2 to be released, but the mail has arrived from Linda.
Hi FrogPad Innovators,
I speak with you as clients and also as true supporters of FrogPad2.
There is a delay in the FrogPad2. And it has been caused by a funding issue. Suffice it to say, we were given a commitment for funding and as occurred last year, the funding was replaced by a strategy to control the company.
Bottom line, the funding we did receive allowed us to develop the industrial design of the new Bluetooth/USB FrogPad2. The balance of the funding will come through a private placement which will occur this month. With that we will resume manufacturing in June-July. And we are at least able to continue to offer software versions of FrogPad on our store.
We cannot in good conscience continue to hold your money. PayPal is holding the funds until we ship, so we can immediately refund your gift certificate. I am grateful that some of you have offered to leave your gift certificate in place, yet I will immediately refund you if you so chose.
I will make this announcement on Facebook and update the web site, yet I wanted you to know first. Please, if you need additional information, do call me directly at 713 960 9611. Also, to have you completely informed, I am sending to you the latest info on FrogPad below. Thank you again, especially those of you who have waited patiently for 3 years. We will never give up!
I was disappointed. It seems that the money will be refunded If I want, but I want a FrogPad2 not the money. I waited patiently, but the e-mail came from Linda again.
I have to find another way to get funded so I can build FrogPads, and I, in all conscience, could not continue to hold your money.
I promise we will keep in touch.
I would like to introduce myself, my name is Andrew Taylor and I am the new CTO and Founding Partner of FrogPad2. A couple months ago I was introduced to a lovely lady named Linda that was the original creator of the FrogPad device. When she showed me the FrogPad device I immediately fell in love.
