With that in mind, looking at your other post again, I wonder about this statement:
Sold refers to the preorder purchases already made
Is that referring to people "making" orders (which is what I first thought), or does it have to do with how many devices (or at least the parts for the devices) you have actually manufactured ("made")?
If the latter, it would make sense and be very interesting. As an example, say you have 100K orders. But during the spring months you make or purchase all the parts for 50k and you expect to make 50k more in the summer months, thus new orders would be for October, etc.
Or it could go a bit further. Not just that many parts to make complete units, but also actually that many parts assembled into fully functional TextBlades, other than the need to update with the latest firmware.
In either case, it would be very important update info as it would mean that ALL the hardware has been locked down for GR since you wouldn't make such large numbers if you weren't totally set on the hardware. If just parts, the new paint may not be done yet, but that should be it. The main points would still apply.
Now we just need clarification.
