The story we’ve heard goes that Arrington’s suppliers have come
back with quotes significantly higher than they had initially
That could explain why we haven’t heard a peep about the CrunchPad
since the summer. Arrington told the New York Times in July that
he would host an event “at the end of July or the beginning of
August to make a big announcement about the CrunchPad,” and that
the device would go on sale “as soon as possible.” It’s now
November, with no event and no gadget.
