Did a bit of my own research. There is a really good (and really long) thread over at http://www.howardforums.com here is a link to the page with the answers I was looking for. It's really a great thread for anyone interested in this phone.
"The Motorola MPx is expected to be available in the second half of 2004."
Just Europe? Japan? Possibly the technology deprived North America?

Darn good question... wish I knew, too... I am ASSUMING that we will get it in the US because everyone from Mr. Rodgers to Bill Gates has been showing this thing, including in the US, and its created quite the stir... If it isn't released here in the US, its because none of the cell carriers want to deal with, what they will undoubtedly consider, a complicated device.
