After about a year of intense fine tuning Digirig Mobile went through nine revisions and it is now ready to graduate into higher volume production. Let’s take a look at the specifics.
The test batch of Digirig Mobile is all sold out and enjoying high grades from early adopters. Now the new revision 1.5 is publicly available with ample inventory. Let’s look at the changes and improvements…
With Digirig Mobile getting all the attention, let’s not forget about its larger sibling Digirig Shack. The new prototype is built and looking sweet. Let’s look a the changes.
