I wanted to give you all an update from the Particle team on the progress of our upcoming Particle Mesh line of products.
When Mesh was announced in back February, we targeted a ship date of July 2018 but, with current product development timeline, Particle Mesh will now ship to preorder customers in September 2018.
We’re committed to providing as much transparency into our development effort as possible throughout the spring and summer, so we’ve created a list of public milestones that will allow you to track our progress towards final delivery.
So why has the ship date slipped?
The Particle Mesh family features cutting-edge communication protocols like Thread, Bluetooth 5, and LTE M1/NB1 which require entirely new silicon that, in some cases, has never been deployed in a product before. There are benefits to working with these powerful new technologies for both you and our team, but it also means our engineering teams are working through new challenges — limited access to hardware samples, quickly evolving chipset SDKs, and unexpected firmware bugs.
We hope you’ll follow along with us as the team works to bring you Particle Mesh. If you have questions, please feel free to ask away here in our community forums — our team is here to help out with answers.
