From Amazon, for one of the earliest Karma orders:

1 of: Rio Karma 20 GB MP3 Player, by Digital Networks N.A.
- Updated shipping estimate: October 1 - October 8
- Updated delivery estimate: October 2 - October 9

At least we've got a real date now.

You having a beta unit will not help me play with one in the car on the way there

The vast majority of us aren't sufficiently special to warrant beta equipment.

Actually you and I both are sufficiently special, there are just an insufficient number of players....

Ugh: In the main features: "Supports MP3 and WMA formats" and in the specs: "Digital Audio Formats MP3, WMA"

That's it? Well if it won't play OGG... They need some educatin'.

This is even worse
Music-Management Software RealOne

They could lose some sales over that misinformation.

Good point. Information has been forwarded to the appropriate people at Rio. Hopefully someone at Rio can influence the people at Best Buy.

After this week I sort of suspect the only special I am is "short bus" special.

I figured the price would go up to 399 when they actually got the units but who knows.

Correction: $30 off MSRP. Froogle it, and you'll see prices like these.

Note that Neutron appear to ship internationally as well. You'd still have to pay import duties, but at least the shipped price is under US MRSP.
