Thanks for the info guys, really helpful.
Just curious, would anyone be interested in a sort of group buy for a VGA
breakout board? Looks like I would be able to put together a full kit for
about $10-$15 each with US shipping (not sure about international) assuming
~10 people would be willing to go in on it. If you already have the
components you might be able to do it cheaper yourself, but should save a
bit of money for those of us without a stock pile of components.
Let me know if you are interested, and if it seems like there are enough
people I will pursue putting it together.

The shop owner can not access the internet for the past 3 days. Now he
is alive again. All the first batch of boards will be shipped after
the holiday(Oct 6th). About 20 orders are already shipped today.
Keep simple, stay foolish.

+1 for moving this project to Kickstarter :) It would be awesome!

even if crowdfunding is a nice idea, kickstarter in particular is
US-only, and this project is chinese. pre-ordering or crowdfunding
will only work if the chosen service does smooth and inexpensive
payments to small entrepreneurs in mainland China.

I don't see the point. The project is already off the ground, it's something that's done in spare time. The creator(s) already have full time jobs and throwing more money isn't going to change that. This project is already up and running, what is moving it to kickstarter going to achieve, except inundating the creators with orders, that they're already struggling to keep up with.

Exactly that's why.
More funds = able to increase production through various means = lower
delivery and production time.
Though that requires the ability to manage all that, which could cut in the
time used for R&D.

One member of the Kickstarter team has to be a US citizen. That
requirement has something to do with credit card processing laws and
preventing Kickstarter from being used for laundrying drug money.
Any one can buy from Kickstarter. The rest of the team can be from
anywhere too. Your company does not have to be US based, you just have
to have one US owner.
However, CubieBoard is only suitable in its current form for highly
technical people. You'd end up with a lot of unhappy Kickstarter
customers if you did it now. To minimize problems the kernel needs to
be in good enough shape that it is checked into mainline. Same for
Android or debian/ubuntu builds.

True, would be a good idea to wait a few batches until the worst problems &
niggles have been ironed out.

yes, this is what we think and worry about. First we ship about
hundreds of boards out and listen to the feedback. If the hardware is
proved stable. We can start massive production. Now we are looking a
factory which can manufacture enough boards when we really start
