Andromium, the makers of the Android Notebook-Shell Superbook announced a four month shipping delay due to necessary design changes and rising component prices. However, backers are getting some benefits out of the delay.

Andrea Jiang, CEO and co-founder of Andromium, makers of the Superbook, announced a four month delay until June of this year for shipping the Superbook to backers on Kickstarter. The Superbook is a notebook shell for Android smartphones that will turn a phone into a notebook using the shell and the Andromium app and can also function as a secondary display for Windows PCs or Macs. The project was crowdsourced on Kickstarter and was supposed to ship by February of this year.

The delay is due to necessary design changes for mass production and because key components have risen in price since the project started. To compensate all Kickstarter backers who supported the project, Andromium decided to pay for all customs and VAT fees for its international backers worldwide. In addition to that, all backers will receive a coupon code that will be valid for life and take $25 off of all future Superbook generations. It can also be given to friends.
