[gruso edit] This is the plan, as it has been explained to us: The intention of selling 'instant' $500 Pandoras is to pay for extra help on the assembly line, and double the daily output. While this does technically mean that instant buyers will be jumping the queue, the increased output should see all pre-orderers get their Pandoras faster. Instant Pandora numbers are limited. They will not eat into pre-order stock. If this extra income and production speedup does not happen now, the project may not last beyond Batch 2. The ordering page is up and open for business. Please take discussion and debate to Craig's original megathread. This one will be kept clean, for quick reference.

I know this was on the front page, but people seem to be missing some of these points. Thanks MarioPandio. Some people seem to think that this has not happened, and it has: Let me know if something needs to be added.
