Opz looks pretty fun but struggling to evaluate its actual worth/benefit. Especially for people that aren't interested in the video aspect. But Op1 is something that only totally reveals its value once you have it in your hands so maybe Opz will be the same. Just seems possibly a little too niche/fashion over function for me. Not sure the fun factor warrants buying in to its limitations. All depends on price tho..

Yeah depending on the type of browser (mobile or desktop) it will show September 2017 / Late 2017. I don't know if it's a bug or if they keep changing their minds. Either way. Its getting close the end of September so I doubt it's coming this month. I bet the wanted to avoid the iPhone release because they are using iPhone screens for the OP-Z. This will give people time to buy their new iPhone which they will use as the OP-Z screen. The new iOS 11 update made a lot of changes a few days ago and I am sure they need to thoroughly test their app with the full iOS 11 release and not just the Beta. If the OP-Z shipped around the same time as iOS 11 and it somehow broke the app everyone with an OP-Z would be shit out of luck for a screen until they worked out the bugs. It makes sense to me at least . This is my biggest problem with the whole BYOSomething. Devs start to rely on the fact people have things like an iPhone and it almost becomes insane to think about buying both just to use the OP-Z to it's full capability. Especially for someone that uses Android. I don't but this type of stuff locks me into iPhone, like my Apple Watch and Apple TV does. I could never get rid of my iPhone. It kind of feels like what ROLI is doing with their new controllers being heavily based around iOS as well.
Just saw this on Reddithttp://kitmonsters.com/blog/teenage-engineering-x-prototypaIt says "due out early next year" :-/
