    We can discuss all we want about who said what and what they meant. The undeniable fact is that HS was not and is not ready for the demand for this phone. Slice it any way you want, there was a back log of orders in the beginning and that is still a reality. They do not have enough phones to go around.

    To make things worse they haven't even started to offer phones for one of their largest customer bases, T-Mobile customers. You will see then what kind of delays we will be facing. On top of that, many more hardware problems because of the pressure on the manufacturing line to churn units at a higher pace. There is nothing so far or in the horizon indicating that HS has changed their ways from what happenned on the initial Treo launch.

    The bad news IMHO is that HS is having their last chance to stablish a beach head on the smartphone land. They will be killed when the big boys catch up, and it will be entirely their fault for their inability to meet the demand for the great products that they design.

    Expect the worse.

    It is a crock to think that shipping bottlenecks regarding the Sprint CDMA phones are causing delays with the rollout of the domestic GSM models.

    They are built on different technologies.

    HS has had NO problems with the GSM rollout outside of the US and there are no indications of supply limitations from Orange customers or from those willing to pay steep prices for foreign market unlocked, carrier non-specific GSM handsets.

    This whole thing SCREAMS that it is nothing other than HS's failure to coordinate the customizing its US carriers require that is the source of the delay.

    There can be no other reason, unless you are willing to accept obvious lies as truth.

    Yeah, this Nov 17 date seems more like a situation of where Cingular is getting ready to handle support calls for the product.
