During this year's CeBIT at Hannover (Germany) I did another Q&A session with Saygus and asked them your questions. Even though I had to skip or combine some of the questions, to keep things short, we got answers to more than 25 of them. Thanks for all your questions and your support!
There is no final dealine, the pre ordered VSQUARED's will be shipped as soon as they are ready.
As already mentioned here, the planned bonuses for pre orderers are: SqGl ear buds, an additional protective cover, a spare battery and 50% off on the next generation device.
The FCC certification process will be started with the recently built devices in the next weeks.
Yes, there will be a beta testing before the final devices are shipped to the customers.
Some media outlets will receive a review unit first. Customers will be receiving their VSQUARED at the same time or shortly afterwards.
Yes, certification issues and other unknowns can still certainly impact the release schedule.
Yes, but you will have to properly unmount the SD cards before removal. Otherwise you risk damaging your SD card and its filesystem.
The behaviour depends on the operating system you are using. On Android you can choose between charging only, data transfer (MTP) and photo transfer (PTP) mode.
Assuming that you're battery is sufficiently charged, you can expect to watch your Full-HD cinema movie until the end without the need to charge your phone in between. By lowering the phone brightness and minimizing background processes you can further extend the battery life of your VSQUARED.
Yes. With such a docking station you can have monitor, mouse, keyboard, speakers, external drives and even ethernet connected to the VSQUARED through the USB 3.x port.
Yes, USB 3.0 also brings faster charging, better connection options to other devices and a faster transfer speed. In addition to that the connector is more durable than the previous ones and can be also plugged in upside down.
Not really, because the capacitive screen technology is recognizing water contact as a touch and can't differentiate between the water and your finger.
Yes, it will be safe to submerge the VSQUARED, even with the back cover removed.
It is possible to operate the VSQUARED under the shower. The water splashes don't affect the screen as much as a constant stream or full submersion do.
Saygus guarantees against manufacturing defects. Any other warranty has still to be determined.
The VSQUARED supports booting other OS'es, which have been adapted for it and it depends on the software provider, if the device will be supported by a particular OS.
Yes. The SD card sacrifices speed and reliability for cost effectiveness and storage space as opposed to the internal storage. The internal storage uses a different technology than the SD cards and is connected directly to the board.
Removing the SD card during operation will not damage the phone, but you should be aware that the card and its filesystem may be corrupted.
Yes. You can only run OS'es which have been adjusted to the VSQUARED's hardware and include proper drivers for each component.
Android requires you to choose one of the two SIM cards as a default data line. Other OS'es may offer a different solution for this.
No, this is not possible with the standard Android OS.
There isn't a significant increase of battery usage when using the dual-SIM feature.
Yes, they will be available after the release together with other accessories.
The Saygus VSQUARED supports all common capacitive type stylus. The next version hasn't been completely planned yet, so it is still uncertain, if it will have a built-in stylus.
The design of the VSQUARED allows that kind of upgrades.
Yes, there is a lanyard slot (or camera strap hole) at the botton of the device.
The VSQUARED is using an IPS panel instead of an AMOLED screen, since the IPS panels are expected to have a longer lifetime and more realistic colors than AMOLED screens. The successor of the VSQUARED hasn't been completely planned yet.
