Jeff, I fully understand that a final price and delivery dates may require details to be resolved. I do think it reasonable for indicative or target prices and dates to be provided at a launch.
Obviously shipping, tax/duties, handling charges will vary, most people are used to buying things directly from all over the world.
I can’t see why a channel uplift would be put on these devices - it would by far be simplest to buy them directly (not via channels who may add no value). Certainly for early adopters and experimentation.
If the idea is produce a consumer product that competes with other consumer oriented products on the market and to be sold in volumes (and held in inventory by channels/distributors) then perhaps the issue of channel margin is more of a factor. wienkegiezeman said “… we want to share open code and innovation on how we think a LoRaWAN device should work. … to allow anybody to create a version of the Generic Node. …” So I had the distinct impression its purpose was to accelerate adoption and best practice - not to turn TNN into a consumer device company. Maybe I am wrong.
