As you may already know, the forthcoming EPIA-M will not fit into the current CF-7989 mini-iTX case.
This because the CF-7989 has the rear ports cutouts stamped out of the case & thus doesn't use the standard 'backplane' - the EPIA-M has a different rear port layout than the existing EPIA's, so will not fit. (Yeah, yeah, yeah - this is OLD news!)
Anyway, I received some new info this week which states:
'The new case is different from the old one because the new one has floppy drive plus the I/O shield is different'
'The leadtime will be around 6-7 weeks'
'Will keep you informed about the availibitlity'
So, for those of us who thought that we could just replace our EPIA with an EPIA-M in this case will be sadly disapointed.
And if the leadtimes are correct, then it looks like the new version may not be available until quite a while after the EPIA-M hits the streets later this month.....
More news when I have it..
