QUICK REPORT: CONFIRMED, P1 SPECIFIC HARDWARE COMING !
Well, I talked to a number of mail order resellers and none are taking pre-order's for the soon-to-be-released consumer portable from Apple computer, yet. One said "There's no SKU no# in our system yet" another said "We don't expect them till around Christmas!" I then asked if anyone had their catalogs ready with the P1 in it and all said No or wouldn't confirm. Looking for any other clues, I inquired if any of the catalog sellers would be selling P1 specific Hardware and two said yes, one said he had no info and another said if available yes! So we'll have to see what P1 specific hardware will be coming out of the pipeline !!!
