Kickstarter Pebble Clears $10 Million

Pebble has cleared the $10,000,000 mark on Kickstarter, and the opportunity to get your Pebble FIRST (and before Xmas) is nearly over. BlueTooth 4.0 is being supported on the new Pebble as well, it is suprising that "Pebble did take on some seed funding from Y Combinator but weren't successful at raising YC capital". The founder of the Pebble watch Kickstarter project did an AMA on Reddit yesterday providing some insight into the idea. Here is a summary of his questions and answers on Reddit.

Latest update for the Pebble Bluetooth Watch on Kickstarter Watch has limited the Kickstarter rewards to 85,000 Pebbles. See the update from Kickstarter below:

"We're limiting Kickstarter rewards to 85,000 Pebbles...Just wanted to let everyone know that our current plan is to limit the total number of Kickstarter rewards to around 85,000 Pebbles. As soon as the total exceeds that, all rewards will change to being 'sold out'. Right now you have claimed 75,000 watches, that leaves only 10,000 more before Pebble is sold out!"

Did you get yours yet, I backed this project on day 2 of Kickstarter...advertising for the Pebble has already begun.
