Default Where is the Oly P-440?

Is the Oly P-440 a real product? I have not seen it for sale in any store. Amazon.com says there is 1-2 week wait. Even the Oly web site doesn't have it for sale (but they still have the business version of the P-400 up) and they don't have the product info availible for download. I want one for Christmas, but can't tell my wife where she can find it! :evil:

Any ideas about this?

Carl

Here it is:

I see that Amazon has reduced the price from 499.99 down to 449.99
A few days ago it was at 499. and apparently is on "sale".

It isn't "real" yet - in other words it is not available at this time. Neither is the the P10 printer. I think they are having either parts or production delays. We have been waiting to get both of them for review and we usually get things like that well ahead of their availability to the buying public.

Thanks Steve! I thought it might be something like that.

Thanks for the update on the price! I had one on order for $499, so I just cancelled it and entered a new order...for $449.

I wonder how they are able to sell without the item being off the assembly line?

Amazon states (of this product) "Usually ships within 1 to 2 weeks"

I can understand pre-orders but insinuating that it will be available to ship 1-2 weeks? Unless they are able to get away by stating, "usually".

FatNoah, I've done the same as you Have you, by any chance, written to Amazon asking if they will have this printer soon?

Steve, if you usually get these products well ahead of their availability date...this may be bad news for folks like FatNoah.
Is there any chance that this product may hit the market before you've been able to review it?

I haven't asked them yet...though I am hoping that the price will keep going down the longer the printer is delayed!

You're terrible...but then, so am I! :mrgreen:

If you are in no hurry in getting your printer, your wish may come true. lol

When you do get it, be sure to post a review. If you would.

I heard back from Amazon...it was basically they're normal canned response. To the best of their knowledge, the printer should be arriving from the manufacturer in 1 to 2 weeks....i.e. they have no idea!

When (if?) I do get the printer, I will post a review.

For those interested...my P-440 shipped today from Amazon, so I should have it in the next week or two. I'll post a review when I get a chance to see it in action.
