I wouldn't bet on that just yet. It could be a very limited release that is priced sky high. Basically they can claim it's available, just that 90% of the people who would want one are turned off by the initial high price and then a couple of months later in Q1'07 they can release lower priced variants after working out the kinks. Marketing game. Nothing new. AMD has done the same thing.
