Oct 1 is an internal goal but I think Reed has set that goal with Dell. Reed has commented several times to get a PO they will need a waiver. I think it is likely that Dell told UNXL exactly what they wanted prior to delivery. I am betting that Dell is in talking with UNXL and Kodak about the processing and the certification paperwork. If they are happy with what they see a PO will follow. Will the PO come prior to Oct 1? No idea but it is likely we get a PO at some point in the next few weeks.
Chris: I know one of the posters on here said he was told by UNXL contact that "they are over halfway there" My guess is that is related to manual testing of the number of units needed for the initial order. They will want to get those units out, and then have a little time to get the roll to roll tester up and running. I agree with you, UNXL knows exactly what Dell is looking for and is working to deliver as soon as all of the paperwork ducks are in a row.
