Whither the Crunchpad?

Dan Frommer:

The story we’ve heard goes that Arrington’s suppliers have come back with quotes significantly higher than they had initially predicted.

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.
