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 47 (George Kaliviotis):|
I can`t speak for Don.
I only know that the product is not dead for him and is
currently only on a lower priority level as he`s 100% loaded
with work on future Metabox development.
The CyberstormPPC is not my card...only the the whole software
base belongs to me.
The HW design is owned by DCE which will probably start the
production again this week.
Sure that DCE board sales would directly be more financial
attractive to me but I don`t really think that both products
are really competing at the moment.
It`s up to every user without a PPC to decide if he wants a
product now or if he wants to wait for a not yet available one.
Frank Mariak and I surely plan to support the Amijoe with a
MorphOS port when it`s coming.
Besides that Don and I know us for about 10 years and we were
the initial Phase5 development team so there`s nothing about
competition between us which you may assume through the DCE
Phase5 products reissues.
