The Bluetooth-powered lost item finder called Tile, which last summer raised $2.6 million via crowdfunding, has finally begun shipping, the company now claims. Early backers may be a bit skeptical, given the delays the company experienced since raising a significant round of funding many months ago, then not being able to deliver in a timely manner. But over the Memorial Day holiday here in the U.S., Tile’s Twitter account has re-tweeted photos of at least one happy customer’s receipt of the Tile device as proof of the shipments as well asotheraccolades, and promises to publish a more complete ship schedule soon.
For those wondering when their own Tile will arrive, the company notes that it will ship in order by the date the pre-order was placed. Or in other words, Tile’s earliest backers will receive their devices first, as it should be.
