Being manufactured now. But, actual shipping is anyone's guess. I was told by FRS Sales "sometime in December" for shipping to start. We shall see!

As it stands today, we anticipate the beginning of production "M" model shipments later this month or early December.

Initial order shipment in the first run have not began at this time as far as I know. I hope units are shipped this month as we have been told, but who knows?  Shipment times have lagged many months now so it maybe 2018 before shipment begins on the first run, thus March for the second run would only be a guess........

Besides, my non M 6600 order was placed 5/19.
Can't get any better than that.

I hope your correct, was hoping for nice Flex 6400M under the Xmas tree but looks more doubtful every day that goes by and no news of any shipped or anyone contacted for final payment..

I guess that's how small companies ramp production. I'm used to working for companies that can ramp from zero to hundreds of thousands of units per month very quickly, so it's frustrating waiting months for something after the first units start shipping, especially when you didn't get in first round of orders.

I would love to see a few new pics of the of the 64/6600M. I'm interested in what the new case design looks like. The only pic we have seen are the early proto-type case.

Fred, since you have a pending order, I recommend you contact Sales on Monday and inquire about your order status.
