In an attempt to gain further information regarding the release date of the AmiJoe I have been in contact with a variety of places. Read more below.
Blittersoft UK informed me that the units were ready and waiting on Haage & Partner (presumably for a license for the PPC 68k emulator+warpup). Bill Mc Ewen mentioned in a speech a short while back that they were working though with Met@box to lower the cost of the Amijoes to be around the 250$us or so mark by using as many standardized parts as possible. This still left the question of when it would come out so i then contacted met@box themselves, in which their international rep ("Susan") replied: "Please keep an eye on the website. I have no further info at present". Does anyone know anything more on this matter regarding its release?

|In reply to Comment 27 (Ben Hermans/Hyperion):
You hit the nail on the head there - the relative unimportance of Amijoe to Met@box is the key problem.
It's a small product for them and it's really not that important to them that it ever comes out. On the other hand the rest of the market depends on it coming out to a greater or lesser degree. It's not hard to see that there's a significant imbalance in negotiating strength between the parties involved, which doesn't tend to encourage quick agreements.
