The mechanical shutter is indeed normally open - it needs to be for the live viewfinder images to work!

I can't help thinking that Ron Dennis' reaction to Max Mosley's situation runs something like: "sweet".

It's all a mirage

I'm on the verge of concluding that these things just don't exist. I've had two 701s on order for 3 months now with no idea of a delivery date. Not only was Christmas missed, now the first birthday of the year will soon pass. Until yesterday, Expansys were showing 1 more day's wait on both white and black 701, today the black one's gone back out to 7 days (not that that means anything).

No point in preannouncing new products, colourful variants of the existing if they can't deliver. They'll need to send that girl from the beach round to my house with the 701s tucked under her arm to restore my confidence. Asus need to get their supply chain in order immediately otherwise they'll lose all credibility. I have never seen such inability to execute.
