Sorry if this is already answered elsewhere, but: Given that LE's were being shown and apparently handed out in Amsterdam this week, does this mean that LE's are actually going to ship sooner than the "4-6 weeks after the Jan 30 BB10 launch event"? Has anyone in the US returned their Dev Alpha and gotten a tracking number for an LE en route back to them?
I'm basically trying to minimize the time window that I'm without a test device. If it's still going to be 4-6 weeks (actually now 3-5 weeks) before LE's are even being shipped in the US then there's only downside to returning my Dev Alpha right now.

I too sent back my Dev Alpha and live in the USA. I received notification on 1/23 that the warehouse received the unit back. I was hoping that the devices would ship out earlier than the 6-8 weeks as they were given out in Amsterdam and unlocked Z10 models were distrubted at the global launch events. I will try to be patient but it's so hard when so many of my friends north of the border are enjoying theirs.

I am certainly holding onto my DevAlpha for another two weeks. It does not appear as if devices are anywhere near ready to be shipped...

I also agree that it is is really annoying for 6 weeks without testing device.
Moreover, it says the LE won't ship until 6 weeks after the launch date. The Z10 is launched elsewhere but not in the US yet, so what date should I use to count? And thus when is the best / latest date that if I send back the devalpha, I'll get one of the earliest batch of the LE?
And by the way, should I also send the original box of devalpha back or just the bare devalpha device? (I know we don't have to send accessories back from the other thread.)
