I sure can believe the low number of per-orders, as it was already evident when the other thread was still open. There was the number of about 700 given, and also quite some time later the talk was at about 800. Would be nice if the team could give some more concrete numbers/update though.
You can currently still pre-order a MEGA65 from Trenz. So I assume at least that not all 1400 units are gone yet. But I can't find more information about the pre-sale or any problems with it.
