Are you sure they did just "just so they can claim they 'sold out'"? Or, could one of the reasons possibly be that after announcing the product, and promising it to end users, they subsequently bought out a company with an existing OS, and decided on a new roadmap? That they then produced a few for special orders in an effort to fill orders for those that still wanted the device in spite of the newly announced roadmap?
