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?

Spamming? Real income projects?
Typical. I don't think requesting information about a project which was due to be released in December of 1999 constitutes "spamming".
I guess that explaines why Phase 5 never answered any e-mail. I guess it was considered spam to request information.
I also object to the notion that this is not a "real income project". At least 5000 of these cards can be sold and would allow Metabox to offload a bunch of old G3's.
Since they enjoy a monopoly, they could charge whatever they wanted. Unlike the Mac market which is every competitive.
