“They’d better not. Yesterday, we were promised a Q1 update increasing the track number limit”
I seem to recollect Sansafix saying before Q1, which means before the end of 2008.
This limit can be increased in Firmware. We are expecting a significant increase (target is 8000 songs) by Q1, 2009.

Before you all get worked into a lather over this, realize that this could mean March 31st next year OR longer! Remember the update that is supposed to come out today, Dec. 12th was originally ‘scheduled’ for release a month ago in November! These things have a way of sometimes taking longer than anticipated.
And as Spock would say, “Logic would clearly dictate that prudence should be observed in rushing to explore new worlds.”
In other words, those who rush to be the first are sometimes sorry later. Remember the people who camped out on the street for days just to be the first ones to buy the I-phone? They couldn’t get them activated for days because of the mad rush, and then only 3 months later, the price dropped significantly p!ssing off all those who bought one at the higher price!
QA testing by the SanDisk crew clearly has not caught bugs & issues before, otherwise we wouldn’t need continual updates to fix them. The real ‘proof in the pudding’ comes from us, the real users of these devices who sometimes push the envelope or use it in a particular manner that shows a previously unknown flaw.
If I had a dollar for everyone who rushed to be the first to update their firmware and then later posted, “My this doesn’t work” or “That is worse than before” and “How do I go back to the previous firmware. This sucks!”, then this would be a very merry Christmas indeed!
