And today in my inbox I saw a great example of product delays. 10 months or so later Apple has an announcement - so we are way ahead of their schedule ;-).
**Update 12:50p - - Thank you for the responses to the X100 delay scenario. I agree we could do a better job communicating, but I am personally handcuffed since I am in sales not marketing. My NYC dealers do know the scenario with the camera arrival and those reading this are being kept as up to date as possible. More on deliveries later in the day.
This blog remember is a personal endeavor with company info as appropriate. I have urged FNAC HQ to release more data and update the Facebook page more often (Fujifilm FinePix X100).
The comments (section below) on the beautiful X100 custom site are great and appropriate ( http://www.finepix-x100.com/ ) - but alas that is not a USA controlled site and for those with large company experience - that means we don't necessarily have access to update country by country the shipping details. So yes the ball is dropped - but luckily it's rubber and it bounces, and will be back up soon.
As for the comment about earthquake update - that is located in previous posts. Here is some info relating to slower shipments to the USA from Japan:
4-21-11 - U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is monitoring developments in Japan carefully, specifically concentrating on the potential for radiation contamination of goods shipped to the U.S. For shipments arriving via air, all airports have sensitive Radiation Isotope Identification Devices (RIIDs) to determine both the presence and type of radiation encountered. At seaports, and at international mail and express consignment facilities, CBP continues to use sensitive, large-scale Radiation Portal Monitors (RPM) and scans all maritime cargo and express consignment and mail arriving from Japan. CBP maintains similar procedures for identifying and resolving radiation alarms in these operations and will deny entry to contaminated cargo and mail.
