    We'll have to wait one more day. Some very important family business is consuming my time today. Please bear with me and I'll update this tomorrow. Respectfully - mikey

    MIKRADLE EVOLUTION X is here!

    Hello and sorry for the long delay. Sometimes life has a way of throwing you a few curves..

    But it's here! The MIKRADLE EVOLUTION X Series! For tonight - no photos, but they will follow either tomorrow or Thursday. A rendering is attached to give you an idea of the style, which is basically an EVOLUTION on steroids. It's larger - 1/2" wider and 3/16" higher. Same chrome pegs, but spaced differently. The horizontal inlay is now, well, an X! :) Why? Because this is the EVOLUTION X, that's why! The left side of the back rest is recessed 3/16" for the bumped out back of the upper portion of the Droid X, where the camera lens is located. This enables the phone to lay flat. This is the basic difference in this dedicated model, mostly the recess and the inlay X.

    I've had such an overwhelming success with the styling of the EVOLUTION, I did not want to stray from the overall design - it's collected more compliments and kudos in two months than the original Classic did in eight months. My Dad always told me - when something works - go with it. So, like I said, we've employed subtle changes to accommodate the larger size of the Droid X, as well as the recessed portion of the backrest. Black felt continues to add protection - the aluminum X inlay is still recessed as on the original EVOLUTION.

    This model includes (standard) a magnet (hidden behind the felt backing) to induce the proprietary Multimedia Mode installed by Motorola. I am (as stated) selling the usual MicroUSB cable, but for now am not offering an HDMI cable. This may come down the road depending on how much call there is for it. I have no pricing yet for this particular cable, but will know within a week and will post relevant information at that time.

    That's it, other than, unfortunately, a price increase. This dedicated EVOLUTION X model has a much more detailed backrest and as such is more labor intensive. Because it's a larger model, all new jigs and templates had to be constructed. As a result - I've had to increase the price. So, here's the deal. The new price will be $45.99. To include an extra long 6' MicroUSB cable an additional $4.00 needs to be added. As always - shipping is free. I'm taking orders as of this post. Simply send a PayPal payment to my account name: lubrich@optonline.net and be sure to include your choice of color, which is as in the past, Cherry, Mahogany, Oak, Walnut, White and Black. If you want the 6' MicroUSB cable, be sure to include an additional $3.00.

    I have right now 25 black models that will ship out beginning Thursday. Another 150 are about ready for spraying in all colors - these will begin shipping out Saturday. Be aware that the first 25 are already spoken for, so any orders placed tonight will start shipping Saturday. Those first 25 will receive an email tomorrow advising them of their shipping schedule.

    I will continue to offer custom options of any color imaginable, choice of inlay colors and materials and as in the past, peg choices are chrome or brass (for now). With a prayer and a whisper, my way, way, way, way overdue website will be up and running next week with numerous photos of options available for this model as well as all the others. :icon_ banana:

    As stated, I will have full color photos within two days. I did not want to wait any longer to post availability as the e-mails are pouring in clamoring for a start time for ordering. For those with questions - either post here or e-mail me at: mikey06@optonline.net

    I thank you all for your interest, your enthusiasm and hope this new model suffices for your needs. I apologize for not having pix ready for tonight - but will post them within two days as promised. Thanks all, mikey :)

    A Sneak Peek - the MIKRADLE EVOLUTION X Series!
