What The Pandora Stands For...

Great post, I completely agree with you, though I'm a bit too impatient to wait 2 years :p
I didn't preorder when preorders for the first batch opened, but I followed the progress, and at several points I thought it was never gonna become a real piece of hardware, but now it is, and it's looking great, both design, hardware and software wise (much better than the original prototype pictures with square, flat keyboard keys.) And by the time I get my batch 2 Pandora, there will be even more software ported and even more optimizations and fixes made to the emulators, so the longer it takes before I get my Pandora the better it will be when I finally get it.
