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?

No, AmiJoe is not a primary product for Met@Box, their STBs and JoeCards are. Being as such, that means their high priority projects will recieved their full attention. (Goes to figure, since it's not their primary source of income). Met@Box is hiring more Engineers so that should relieve Rudloff (once those new engineers are in place) to finish what little has to be done to the Amijoe cards.
Since Met@Box has had a bunch of coders for years now (primarily for their main projects), I'm just wondering who's 68K emulator is going to be used now...
