[2] any chances that you will be selling HTC Typhoon in your online shop? if yes: when approximately?

[3] Arne, come on, we are waiting - when are you going to have the Typhoons for us?

[3] Unlike other shops I prefer to announce it if I have a confirmed ETA (Estimated Time of Arrival) and it's fascinating to see that you are bashing me today in your latest article that I've still not pre-announced it (unlike expansys and we know how often they pre-announced items in the past they never delivered or not delivered in time) while you've bashed before Jason for having pre-announcements on SmartphoneThoughts.

So what's up? Should I pre-announce wishes or facts?

[4] I see your pain and I share it with your but it might be good idea to pre-order it at expansys (because you can cancel pre-orders there anytime). Depends on who is faster while it is not a race for me but still a service for the community!

[5] Arne, my robot is ill and I am not viewing all websites myself. It is not matter of pre-announcing or pre-ordering, it is a matter of clear statement: "yes, I will have htc typhoon in my shop. Don't know whenn, but I will have it". Typhoon is so good that this time you could earn much more money if you only could keep up with orders (and not force customers to wait several months for delivery).
