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?

Dear mister Schmidt, ofcourse I know that Metabox AG is listed on the Neuer Markt. I work for an investment company.
I won't dwell on that although I could give you a nice lecture on Neuer Markt valuations.
What most interested me was this:
"then you better *rethink* again who is handling the sw base for the hw you need for your amiga game sales."
What this is (a not particularly) veiled threat? Because if it was, you are not threatening Hyperion as most of our income will come from Mac and Linux sales but in fact the remaining Amiga users who would like to enjoy our games.
You might want to check with your current employer Herr Dellert about this wisdom of making such threats.
