Interesting, this is all news to me, which it shouldn't be.

What is news to you?   The Checkmate case initiative and Kickstart? 
Or Trevors comment that the Tabor will be ready by May 2019?

??

So it is now may of next year and no news. The checkmate ase is looking really nice and I would happily buy one If I knew there was an A1222 coming that I could fit in the case. I wrote A-EON a couple of weeks ago but have recieved no reply. I do hope they make some official announcement soon.

So...I guess it's still wait-and-see mode right now? Or was it indicated that this wasn't going to happen, in the end?

Same  news posted on www.a1222plus.com/?page=progress.

"Following the successful proof of design, the Early Adopter batch will be manufactured and it is currently estimated that delivery will commence in the second quarter of 2021.

Please note that due to the complexities of the project the estimated timescales are subject to change. Further official updates to this project will be made here.
"

Obviously they did not make this happen (since we are near the end of the forth quarter of 2021).

Perhaps they are waiting on Hyperion to finish a port of OS4.

Time for my yearly question regarding the A1222 Tabor.
Another year has gone by with little to no information provided.

  • Is this thing still being worked on?
    Will it ever see the light of day?
    Will Trevor ever update his Amiga Blog?
These are the things Amiga users need to know..
Please advise

The last thing I read about the A1222 was the following on amiga-news.de on January 13th 2022:

A1222plus motherboard

- Hardware works as expected, including network and audio
- DVD drive support still problematic at the moment.
- Board now can boot Workbench
- Performance like the original beta board: all popular software (e.g. Odyssey and IBrowse, but also the latest DVDPlayer version) as well as A-EON's 2D and 3D graphics drivers including the latest Enhancer 2.1 release are supported.
- The A1222+ uses the latest uboot firmware written by Mark Olsen, which provides additional variables such as reduction in the number of Boing Ball animation and generally faster boot time.
- Production start and planned availability not set yet: currently preparing early adopter production depending on component availability


Source: https://www.amiga-news.de/en/news/AN-2022-01-00041-EN.html

The production of the Sam460LE has started, so it looks like it will appear on the market before the A1222 does.

After what I can see, the A1222 web page (http://www.a1222plus.com/index.php) was last updated in December 2020.

Amikit have taken over the 'product delivery' phase hence less updates. Trevor is focusing on his book with David Pleasance.

... presumably the Early Adopters will get their A1222Plus machines this year? The rest of us would be better looking elsewhere. And that's why the ACube Sam460LE exists IMHO.

We have all heard your opinions for years now.  Please don't comment if you don't have something constructive to add as anyone reading this thread has already heard the negatives for about a decade now and we are still going to hang in there to see if this thing ever sees the light of day.

The only opinion of mine that remains constant is "when it's done" is not a release strategy. The A500 Mini's release date slipped 2 weeks after the launch was announced. This is tolerable but the lack of solid release date and lack of updates is intolerable for the A1222Plus. They can't JUST blame the pandemic and it is also sickening that A-EON kinda views it as a soft launched product already because Beta Testers had them years ago!
