What are the plans for the connect on July 18, 2008

There has been no new information for the Connect in quite some time. They should let us know enough time in advance whether we all need to buy a new mp 3 and sign up for a new service.  If we need a new mp3, what would be the closest to the connect? Which is closer, the Haier Ibiza or the Archos 605 wifi/705 wifi?

Well its not up to SanDisk at this point. Its all in yahoo/real’s court now
