Prelaunch.com is a new site for established brands like Epson and Scosche to offer their latest products for pre-order before they are released in the traditional channels. Each product has a specific pre-order period that ends prior to the product being available in stores. Prelaunch.com also works with brands to offer limited edition products, brand-sponsored contests and exclusive offers that you might not see elsewhere. And best of all, unlike with some other crowdfunding sites, Prelaunch.com does not charge you until the items on your order are ready to ship and you have the opportunity to cancel your order before it ships.

    The founder of prelaunch launched a kickstarter campaign for a watch which raised over 300 000 USD. It was supposed to be delivered november 2012 but they havent shipped yet!

    Not sure what that has to do with anything…but for what it is worth, I do think they are shipping. It seems that they had production issues and he did not want it shipped unless it was right. I would rather them be late than shipped a poor product. IMHO

    That’s actually incorrect, Noah.

    The Kickstarter exclusive was mailed last week, and people on the forum have been reporting they have tracking numbers on their stainless steel band units. Considering you followed the link that Justin Mitchell posted, and all of that information is right there in the forum, you know that.

    Alex,

    I just thought it wouldnt sound as good if I said
    “The founder of prelaunch launched a kickstarter campaign for a watch which raised over 300 000 USD. It was supposed to be delivered november 2012 but only a few of the special edition kickstarter green watches have shipped!”
