But what do you think of the reasons for the delays?

well who knows really - but this below sounds worrisome

Clive has a list. A list of people that says he’ll see to it won’t get a MinIon when it comes out. I can’t tell if he’s joking.

that only makes sense if they do not actually have a product to sell and if they are still operating with the mindset of having to raise more investment rather than demonstrate the feasibility of the product.

it does. but I am a little bit amazed by some of the apparent naivety about... “We didn’t even know that long reads were so important to people until after that AGBT presentation.”

It looks like this inside info was supposed to be "off the record": http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-03-07/oxford-nanopore-s-gene-sequencer-facing-technical-delays.html
