I ordered mine a few days ago and they are saying it's not even going to ship until late august!

What the heck is taking so long getting this thing to market? I mean if they can get something as cool as the iPhone out can they not get a little BT headset out as well?

Maybe they're using a different supplier or maybe they had to wait until the iPhone development was completed before designing the headset.

Based on no insider info (just connecting some dots), I would think that maybe the delay in new hardware is tied to a need for a BT update which would come as part of a "v1.1" software update.

I'm not sure about that. If that was the case, I doubt Apple would say that the Bluetooth headset will be shipped in a few weeks. Normally they don't constrain themselves to time like that.

It is like any new Apple product, it takes some time to stock them before they open the floodgates and release them.

I'm sure we'll see them being delivered soon.

I hope that's the case, but those dates aren't set in stone. If there is a delay, you will get an e-mail with revised ship & delivery dates. I know this from past ordering from Apple. I hope you get your's as stated, I'm looking forward to getting mine soon too and keeping my fingers crossed that there's no delays!

When I was getting my iPhone, a guy that works for Apple (not in the store, but something else pretty high ranking, from what I could over hear) said to his friend/co-worker that Apple had some sort of bug in the BT headset and it was delayed until August...

Eh- take it for what it's worth. Just something I overheard...

Mine says ships by 7/31, delivered by 8/3.

I guess we will just have to see what happens.
