When will this new radio be available? I've preordered on Amazon, but there is no estimated date of availability.

Hello and welcome to the Forum.

Just exactly how would the Forum answer this question? How would Logitech answer this question? The unit has been released by Logitech and just needs to work its way down the distribution chain. I can't answer this question either but I can tell you how it probably works.

One makes a pre-order. The order goes into a queue. Amazon will receive inventory from Logitech's distribution chain. They will bill the credit cards in the pre-order queue and ship out Squeezebox Radios.

So as a partial answer it depends on when Amazon receives its stock and where ones pre-order is in the queue and how far away one lives from where they ship from. So I will take a SWAG that one might get it in the next two weeks.

On a side note, one should have ordered from Logitech because they are going to ship first and they usually give some sort of free speedy shipping on pre-orders.

That's a long reply considering that Logitech essentially did answer the question already:

Actually according to this thread http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?p=463511#post463511 Amazon should get it today or tomorrow. I think the OP wants to know when AZ might get it.

Technically the way it should work from how I see it is that the unit should be available on its release date everywhere. Seems to me Halo3 ODST wasn't released for the first few days by Microsoft only.

I would have ordered from logitech except Amazon had free shipping so I opted for that.
