Can't wait to get my hands on this to see how improved it is. According to their Facebook page and web site it will be ready in time for holidays. Just thought I'd share the information for those who haven't purchased the ET-73...you may want to hold off for the newer model, although I'm sure it'll be a little more costly for the new model. Might also catch some great clearance prices on the currently available model too I suppose. The following is from their Facebook page or you can find the information on their website.
