When Will Apple? review of the of the new Mophie Juice Pack 3g
UPDATE 5 [11.06.08]
Never thought it was going to happen, but it’s finally shipping! (more…)
UPDATE 4 [10.30.08]
Well it’s now October 30th and my juice pack still hasn’t shipped! The mophie site now says November 7th for preorders before the 9th and November 14th for everyone else. I’m not holding my breath on that date though because it has now been delayed over a month. I’m just hoping to get it before new years!
“We have encountered a slight delay from Apple so the 3G Juice Pack will begin shipping October 15th, with all preorders shipping first.”
Mophie Juice Pack 3g Delayed 2 weeks
I have confirmed with Chad that the ship date is still October 1st for early preorders
“The 3G Juice Pack is still being release on October 1st, however all preorders placed after 9/8 will ship on October 15th.”
Thanks to sam’s comment below I’ve checked the mophie website and they are showing October 15 as the ship date. “The Juice Pack for iPhone 3G is available for Pre-Order and will ship October 15th”. It seems mophie keeps pushing back the release going from late september to early october and now to mid october. C’mon Mophie, I need my juice!!! Also, the next 10 batch of mophie juice pack 3g contest winners will be announced on October 1st.
Mophie has a nice FAQ about the new juice pack that says it will be “available” October 15th, but it still says shipping in late september.
When will the juice pack for iPhone 3G be available?
- The juice pack for iPhone 3G will be available October 15th, 2008. Just in time to dress up your new iPhone 3G for Halloween!
When will you ship the Juice Pack 3G?
- We expect to ship the Juice Pack 3G in late September 2008.
Also, interesting is that the new juice pack will allow syncing through the juice pack.
It is confirmed the new mophie juice pack 3g for the iPhone 3g will be released on October 1st for preorders placed on or before September 8th and the 15th of October for all other orders.
In an email from Chad @ Mophie:
“The 3G Juice Pack will begin shipping October 1st, with all preorders shipping first.”
Not sure how fast the first gen juice pack sold, but I assume since there is a lot more to do on the new iPhone 3g and the diminished battery life these new features bring this new juice pack will be in high demand. So if you want to make sure you get one October 1st you probably should jump on the preorder like I did!
So the When Will Mophie Juice Pack 3g Be Released poll is now closed, but check out these other these other polls for a chance to win a new iPod nano, $25 iTunes gift card, and apple $50 gift card. These polls just had a fresh round of new rumors surrounding them which may or may not close these polls after the September 9th apple event.
