How hot is the Sony PCM-D1?

Via Music Thing comes the announcement of Sony’s new professional flash recorder — the PCM-D1:

It records 24/96 wav files on 4gb internal, or memory sticks. It has analog VU meters. It runs off four AA batteries. It’s made by Sony. Out of titanium.

I wonder what it’d take to get a review unit out of them before it ships in December.
