We will be working with the Amiga retailers over the coming weeks to solidify launch and support plans
How many "Amiga retailers" are left in the world after 15 years absence of any kind of hardware? If billyboy picks up the phone and talks for 30 minutes to each and every one, he'll be done within a couple of hours at the most

Amiga Inc. : Hi, I'm from Amiga Inc. and we have some new hardware we'll be shipping in the next couple of months. Would Sir be interested in partaking?

Retailer : <silence>

Amiga Inc. : Hello hello is anyone there?

Retailer : I think you've got the wrong number

Amiga Inc. : Hi, this is Bill the Amiga Inc. president your call is important to us - we also have a selection of 6 super games which we currently sell!

Retailer : <hangs up>

Amiga Inc. : Bugger, nobody believes us Doris (secretary to bill)
