For a month now, we are familiar with a plan of Republic Wireless to reopen Beta testing this summer but now the process itself has begun. On its blog, Republic Wireless gives details on how to join Beta testing, explaining that it relates only to those who have already signed up, back at launch, to their email list.
Sending emails and letting potential users know about this process is already started. After this email, each of them will receive an invite to claim its saved place in line. They will have a week to figure out if they are still interested and to respond. Those who respond will be organized in beta waves and will be notified when their turn to place order and receive the phone comes. They, of course, will be notified a week or more before the actual purchase.
Those who placed an order in the first round of beta testing but never got the chance to realize it, have advantage this time while those who signed up for email notifications, come next.
Regarding new handset announced for this month and others for later, it’s obviously not the right time yet to reveal which they are but Republic Wireless is certainly “stoked about what’s coming” our way.
