Certainly if the...

I agree. If I could see one (or better yet, both the Acer and Samsung) I think that would really help push me one way or the other.

Why would that delay? If I had a pending suit against Google, would my damages be worth more money if they DID ship? Wouldn't I want Google to sell them so that there are "real" damages out there?
