As the title states, here's a video of the Turing Phone running Sailfish 2.0.

Hoping that this turns out to be a good high end offering.

Yes, the email also states that they will also ship phones that run SD 820 as the processor

I want this phone too. TRI lost already a lot of preorders and this community can help them if they prove that this device will become reality. What scares me most is this statement "The first batch of Turing Phone(s) will be shipped as Evaluation Unit(s)" as we wish to upgrade you to the Snapdragon 820 Edition (free of charge) before the end of 2016." Swapping processors is not a plug and play thing. You need to design a new pcb layout that match 820 requirements, interfaces, power dissipation, antennas etc. TRI, if you follow this forum and I think you do, show us first batch of phones before packing. Give us some real, final, specs. Show us detailed pictures with phone internals. Show us display pixel arrangement. Finally make an offer to this community for 1000 units as Jolla did with Jolla C. I'll be first to throw money at you.

and tell the final prices ... the last info I found is more than one year old... I would be interested in a phone, even without the supermetal casing... I just want a new device because I'm not sure how long my Jolla will still work properly
