There always seems to be word after someone gently prods either here or on website. I just got the email from the website saying delayed another two weeks.......disappointed but not surprised........

its a pretty p*ss poor letter from motorola... i'm not happy at all with the way they keep fobbing the pulse-eight team off, maybe we could have a mass movement to boycott motorola until they deliver OUR remotes

In today's world economy, parts acquisition can be tough, especially with so many companies adopting "Lean" manufacturing practices. Many component manufactures no longer make parts and keep them in inventory until they are ordered, it costs too much.
First, Pulse-Eight orders the product from Motorola based on pre-order sales and projections.
Then Motorola gives them a tentative delivery date based on the lead time of all the parts that are needed to build the device and manufacturing/assembly/testing time.
All is takes is one parts supplier to bump an order down their que (maybe due to larger orders worth more $$$ or their lead time of raw materials getting delayed) to delay the whole project.
Better to arrive latter than expected and in good quality, than right away with sub-par parts.

+1 for boycotting Motorola
Also getting pissed off. Paid for this remote back near January sometime & still waiting. Wife is constantly on my back about being ripped off & who can blame her.

January? Geez, how were you not in the first few they sent out!
I thought my waiting since April was bad enough

Whoops, checked Paypal - paid 1stMay not Jan. Been waiting so long I'm getting dementure!! Wait after paying is still unacceptable though.
