Delays like this are, of course, nothing new on the ebook scene. It may just be that when you release a new device, you need to delay the launch a couple times in order to build up enough customer readiness. Only problem with that is the part where you don't keep your promise about the release date, which I call lying to customers.
Remember all of the delays at Intel with their chips? Some were far more than a few months late. Apple? AMD? I could keep going but you get the point.
