Just hours ahead of its end, Eve has announced that the Indiegogo campaign for its Eve V 2-in-1 tablet has been a pretty big success, and has even set an impressive record. Specifically, the Eve V was the fastest crowdfunding campairng to cross $200,000, the company says. As it stands, the campaign has raised nearly $1.4 million at the time of this writing, blowing away its initial $75,000 goal.
Here are some of the tidbits provided by Eve:
- Fastest crowdfunding campaign to hit 200,000 USD at any time across any platform
- Devices sold across the world with US, UK, Germany and Japan being the biggest countries
- 30% of buyers are switching from Macbook to V
On top of the campaign, Eve has also scrambled to put together a crowd-developed protective sleeve with the help of backers. Mozo, who is known for making some pretty attractive cases for Microsoft products like the Lumia 950 and 950 XL, will be behind creating two sleeves, each of which is currently available for backers to order for $29.90. After the campaign, the sleeves will go up to $39.90.
Lastly, Eve recently held a Reddit AMA where the company answered questions about the Indiegogo campaign and the tablet itself. If you're interesting in learning more about the initiative, you can check out the full AMA on Reddit now.
