Maybe trying to remind the world that they're still around while all of these other OEM's are launching product? I don't know. I guess I didn't realize it was a 3 month window from announcement to availability. Must have glanced over that part. Seems really early to try and make your splash. Maybe some people are excited enough to wait. Maybe some people that are excited get sick of waiting and move on to new launches that are already available. Either way, it feels to me that they're poised to miss out on all of the positive buzz the announcement created. And, it would seem to me, that they're not exactly in the position to afford to do that.Interesting launch.
There has to be an assumption that players will have these out on tour in the bag already, otherwise what would be the reason to launch 3 months early with no pre-order.
