Eve Technology, the company behind the crowdsourced Eve V Windows 10 tablet, has been working hard to complete development of the device. Now, the Eve V is hitting production and the first batch of shipments is scheduled to begin next month. The initial release date was sometime in February, but it did not happen.

The device is the result of continuous input from the Eve community, with funding collected through an Indiegogo campaign that started November. Eventually, Eve reached the target amount an hour later. Now, the company has raised more than $1.4 million from its initial goal of $75,000.

Eve kicked off the first pilot production on April 25 and the company plans to ramp up toward large-scale production later. Ideally, the production stage takes approximately 10 days plus up to 3 days of assembly prior to the shipping. Here’s the company’s statement:

We will start production of second batch of units immediately after first batch is produced. Second batch production is as before planned to be done in 30 days. We are considering splitting up production runs for the 2nd batch so like producing 500 devices first and shipping them 2 weeks after the first batch, making 500 more and shipping them few days later and so on before all 2000 devices are produced. This would help us to ship part of the limited birds faster than in 30 days! The exact timeline of the second batch will become clear after the first batch is produced.
