453: Can we configure/order in May?

The rumors have consistently pointed to late May or early June for US configuration and first-ordering. Does anyone have an update or confirmation of this timeline? So far, MBZ seems to be hitting its key deadlines correctly, so that makes me believe that we'll actually be able to order a 453 in a few weeks.

What does your local smart center say?

453: Can we configure/order in May?

They hope for late May or early June, per my original post. I'm looking for an update or corroboration from our other resident smart specialists.

Oh, and to you, too.

I think the brand reps (if any are left...) at the smart centers will know before any of us so if yours doesn't have any info on ordering I'm sure the others don't either.

The brand reps are as much in the dark (at least I am ?) as the rest of you?

I pester HQ at least once a week.

Last official word from Mothership Montvale was ordering would be able to start "about the end of April", which would mean NOW?

Maybe Monday?

Seriously? One other brand rep already heard from, and I can confirm the rep at smart center Cincinnati doesn't have any ordering info. Hardly " Kill-A-New-Thread Day"....

AFTER I lock in my personal order for the first 453 to be delivered, then I will let everyone else on the planet know ! ! !
