10 | Aug 5 2014 | Introducing Backer Plus and Portable All-in-One Support!
It's the last week for Console OS on Kickstarter. We're aiming to keep the news rolling right to the end of our campaign.

Backer Plus

Everyone really wants us to hit that stretch goal, and we aren’t giving up just yet. We’re also in talks with a few app developers to give us some major last-minute contributions. But we can't close the deal without you.

One of the top pieces of feedback we’ve gotten was that (a lot of) people were more than willing to increase their backing from $10 to $25 but wanted more in return.

So, we’re rolling out the Backer Plus tier, which adds a couple cool things for you to enjoy.

Specifically - Backer Plus adds the following: 

1) One Month of Spotify Premium - available via the Amazon Appstore (Spotify's already working great on Console OS, by the way!)
2) An autographed pre-launch handout - same ones we gave out at the GDC, and at the Intel booth at AnDevCon Boston
3) A nifty Console OS laptop skin / bumper sticker

We realize this isn't necessarily $15 worth of goodies, but that isn't the point.

This is a way for early Console OS backers to upgrade and give the team a way to raise more funds, and get back in the game for a fighting chance to hit our $125k Stretch Goal to support the (entire) Surface Pro™ family of 2-in-1 tablets from Microsoft.

We want to thank everyone for kicking in thus far. Combined with the influx of last-minute backers, we're hoping that we can count on our early backers to upgrade your contribution to Backer Plus. Every dollar at this point, helps us make Console OS work better with more hardware - and we intend to keep working on Surface Pro even if we don't hit the stretch goal.

To increase your pledge:

Just head to the main Console OS Kickstarter page (click the home tab above if you're on the site right now), and then click the Manage Your Pledge button on the right. If you already have kicked in $25 (or more), you'll be automatically upgraded to Backer Plus

Portable All-in-One Support

Console OS is expanding - we’ve already tackled laptops, desktops, netbooks, tablet’s, and 2-in-1’s.

Today, we’re announcing the next step, the Portable All-in-One. This is a new kind of device that gives you the best that an all-in-one multitouch device has, with the portability of being able to go from one room to the next.

Think of a Portable All-in-One as a giant tablet, with a small battery that lets you move it between rooms with ease.

Some of our original R&D for Console OS was done on portable all-in-ones… we even mounted a Sony VAIO Tap 20 in a car. Yes, that means with a little ingenuity, you can give your car a larger touch screen than a Tesla Model S.

We plan to support most Portable All-in-One models on the market. There are numerous variants, and time is short - but we've tested enough that we think we can support a majority of models in Console OS v1.0.

Oh wow.  I totally forgot about those Plus bonuses!

I hear the handouts are worth three times as much with the autograph!  Big Grin
