Online curated consumer electronics store Grand St. has announced Grand St. Marketplace, a new initiative that focuses on presenting potential customers with different hardware in three distinct stages of: Pre-order, Beta, and Consumer. In a similar way to how Grand St. previously managed their homepage, they will be showcasing the best of all three categories.
For reference, a Pre-order item is one that’s already in the manufacturing process with an eye to hit the Consumer side within six months, Beta products are still in development and changing thanks to user feedback, and Consumer projects are finished and available for purchase. The full explanation of these categories, and how to get hardware included in them, is available on the Grand St. website.
