Well, seems like Snail holding up their end of the deal. They have it up for preorder now. I admit, the black and gold design is nice! http://mall.snail.com/item/2096-426-0.html?jz_flow=1846
Taking a look, I see the supported data bands, and they seem to be the same as the W3D, which kinda scares me, since my W3D doesn't seem to connect to the towers out here. But works fine everywhere farther away........still no clue why.
Anyhow, price is confirmed at ? 1799 ($267.00) so that's a plus. I don't see an official release date though, but it seems Belchine.net has it listed, and on Belchine's Facebook there's a date of August 15. So where has Diabloutinbouky been with this info, lol!
