In October we got an email from a company, Peppercorn (not real name), that had reached out to Hatch over a year ago about making a custom Android tablet for them.

After the mass production is over, your products are ready to be sent to their destination.
Before the shipping occurs, the balance payment for the Android devices is made.
After the mold has been produced and the trial of mass production has successfully been performed the real mass production can start.
Before any mass production begins there’s another deposit to be made. Its level depends on the quantity being produced.
In order to make sure that everything goes smoothly, a trial mass production is launched imminently after the mold is finished, tested and validated.
Trial production is an added part to mass production that happens only during the first mass production run of a product that is being made for the first time. This is the case for any custom Android device.
After this stage the project is ready for the mass production phase of your project.
Production of a mold is required only if a custom case is needed, otherwise we’ll source an existing case for your product.
Meanwhile, whether certifications (FCC, CE, Bluetooth, Wifi, Android Compatibility tests etc) are required (which get done after mold is finished), the process to obtain it starts.
The working prototype is shipped to you for review. You send us your feedbacks and requests for modification.
Once the modification are made and your expectation satisfied you give your validation to start the next step: making the mold.
