Have to agree with @joseserrano - I'm certainly not an insider but the most I've heard is rumors that they're getting ready to ship a handful of units to beta testers (or maybe have shipped?) Either way I haven't even seen reports of people with them in their hands. Realistically I would think 3 months at a minimum from the time the beta testers get them until the units ship. Realistically 6-12.Nearly a week away from December. Going to see these for Christmas?
If you look at Neptune's hardware roll-outs for comparison, after they have sent units to their 'insiders' for beta testing, it has generally been several months from the time they do that until the time the hardware is released. From a manufacturer's perspective, part of the beta testing is making sure there are no hardware issues. You'd be insane to actually place an order with your supplier and commit to a final hardware design before doing the beta testing, so they need enough time with the units in the testers' hands and then enough time for the manufacturing to occur.
