I follow it on Youtube.
It is not done yet. And it will be pretty expensive!

Seems cool.
What do you mean with expensive?

I think he means like:
* Pyra Standard Edition, 2GB RAM: 500 EUR without VAT (=595 EUR incl. VAT)
* Pyra Standard Edition, 4GB RAM: 529,41 EUR without VAT (=630 EUR incl. VAT)
* Pyra Mobile Edition, 2GB RAM: 600 EUR without VAT (=714 EUR incl. VAT)
* Pyra Mobile Edition, 4GB RAM: 626,05 EUR without VAT (=745 EUR incl. VAT)

to me that's pretty steep, though perhaps fair for what you get. Maybe your pockets are deeper than mine though.

that's indeed pretty steep.
I think it would be more interesting if the prices where under, say 200 incl. vat.
The concept I like, though.

It is expensive but I think I may order one. Hopefully they will make another that is stronger in the phone functionality after this one. This one can be used as a phone as well but I don't think it will be convenient. Also a camera would be nice. Others have mentioned this also. And the pyra will be upgradable, cpu and ram.

I guess I can do a video review. But I've never done one before. I'm hoping some of the Podcaster will review them too.
