That's logical, after all. The fact that they could take this strange decision this far in he process clearly shows that not a great number of devices have been made so far. Even if they'd began full scale production today, there's no way in the world for a large number production in roughly ten days! They'd have to test all those readers before shipping them off. That alone would last more than two weeks!
