The project seems well prepared, according to Dirk pledges are starting from 100€, but for people willing to bet some more money on this, like 140€:
Get a fully assembled Jolla TOHKBD in your custom colours!

Dirk schedules the delivery goal to April 2015. He's about to push it through with Andrew Zhilin in just half years, if everything goes as planned. Of course, that's all up to the trust of customers - this will be a kickstarter project launch, not a product launch.

Also Jolla started to gather pre-orders and money half a year before their actual product was delivered to the market. Looking at that, the schedule seems ok. But the question is: Do you want this enough to join the party? You have few days to think about that before it goes live - maybe you're the first one?

Few more teasers:
