Has Your PopSlate ePaper iPhone Case Arrived?

Has Your PopSlate ePaper iPhone Case Arrived? e-Reading Hardware Open Topic After two years of waiting, PopSlate announced almost a month ago that they were gearing up to ship the iPhone case which will add a secondary 4" epaper screen.

Does anyone know if that has actually occurred?

I've been following PopSlate since it launched as an Indiegogo campaign in 2012, and I was thrilled to announced a few weeks ago that they were getting ready to ship. But far as I can tell, that hasn't actually happened yet.

My order isn't scheduled to ship until February (I only placed the order a few weeks ago) so I have been trolling Twitter, Facebook, and Indiegogo in the hopes that I would be able to read what early adopters thought.

But I can't find anyone talking about the Popslate, not even in the comment section on Indiegogo (there are a large number of backers who want an iPhone 6+ case, though), and so I amopening the floor to feedback.

Has Your PopSlate ePaper iPhone Case Arrived? e-Reading Hardware Open Topic Do you have a Popslate? If so, I would like to hear what you think.

There are a lot of unanswered questions about the PopSlate. Sure, I can tell you that it adds a 4" PlasticLogic display (with a screen resolution of 400 x 240) to either an iPhone 6 or an iPhone 5, but I can't tell you anything about what can be done with that 4" screen.

Given that no units have made their way into customer hands, we know very little about the software features, and I am hoping that someone can help fill in the holes.

If you have one, please leave a comment. There are a lot of geeks waiting with bated breath for news of the PopSlate.

  1. Same here. Bought after you, and the informs are that it ships in February, but have no clue about the software. Asked about ebook reading in twitter, got no answer.

  2. Here’s some information for you. The guys who started this company started an Indiegogo campaign and sold more than 200k worth of Popslates. The promised delivery date was June 2013. Until today, not a single one of these has been delivered. Not one. Many of the backers are furious, some of the early ones that requested refunds received it, others didn’t. Some fools have held on and have changed their order for the latest iPhone (through 2 model changes). All of this can be verified on the indiegogo site. The company does not respond to emails, provide updates, or anything. Once every few months they put out something that promises more and doesn’t deliver.

    I am taking legal action against them because this constitutes fraud. There’s a lot more I can share about the founders, but I’m leaving you with what is verifiable by you on the indiegogo website.

    Wow! I’m so glad I read your comments before ordering. Why is their website taking orders? What a scam! Their website says they are shipping in four weeks, initial supply sold out, but they don’t give a date! They have a 30 day money back guarantee posted. I sent an e-mail to the address provided on the website as to when I can expect shipment if I place an order. I see one used PopSlate available on Amazon for $165.00. Too bad-this would make a great gift for a birthday for someone special.

    • I haven’t had a reason to follow up, but PopSlate’s new PR rep (who is, FYI, a really pushy and shouty person) is saying that the Indiegogo orders are going to ship by the end of this month. The website orders will ship later.

      I’ll believe that when my review unit ships.

      And I’m not sure that item on Amazon is real, either.
